Free travel events

If you're looking for free live music, festivals and other events, your best bet is to look at the calendar listings in local media, whether it's the city's daily newspaper or an alternative weekly publication. Sometimes, historical societies can help you pinpoint the town's most notable buildings or even help you create a walking tour.

You also can head to the city's website, check out the bulletin board at the town's local library or head to the student center at a local university to find postings. Look up the times and sites of local farmers' markets, where you can soak up the local culture while often taking advantage of free samples and live music.
