About the Book

Go Here Instead: The Alternative Travel List offers travel enthusiasts off-the-beaten-path recommendations to replace some of the world’s more popular and crowded venues. It treats readers to rich details and a visual symphony of sights that will have you rethinking your entire travel bucket list!

There are far too many wonderful places on this beautiful, blue marble we call Earth to ever see all of its amazing wonders. While many of us have a “must-see” list in mind, Go Here Instead encourages readers to reconsider those cliche hotspots in favor of exploring a few lesser known (though every bit as spectacular) destinations.

With more than 100 alternative travel ideas, Go Here Instead offers suggestions for:

  • Ancient and Historical Sights
  • Festivals and Parties
  • Great Journeys
  • Architectural Marvels
  • Natural Wonders
  • Art and Culture
  • Captivating Cities

Complete with suggested activities, dining, and accommodation for each destination, the book provides a holistic view of what your travels could be. If you’re already crossed off some of the more popular destinations, this book may just inspire a second (or third) visit!

With a heavy focus on written content, Go Here Instead is probably best suited for our more mature readers (10+). However, the photography included in the book brings travel to life for readers of any age.

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
