New York City, New York

Buy a traditional map, and study it!
GPS apps can be unreliable and confusing, especially
if your destination has an east/west designation.
Use the subway.
It’s the cheapest and fastest way to get around the
city—not to mention, it’s open 24/7 year-round.
Check your bill before you leave a tip.
Restaurants and pubs are trending toward
automatic gratuities for groups of any size.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Avoid the 215.
The longer route via the 215 airport tunnel can easily
add $10–$15 to your taxi fare.
Expect to wait for a taxi.
If you’re going from anywhere but the airport during
peak hours, plan on waiting from 30 minutes to
2 hours for a cab.
Don’t buy drinks while gambling.
Free drinks are served to those who keep playing.
Don’t let your rental car get towed.
The city enforces winter parking restrictions
from December through April, regardless of actual
O’Hare? Oh no.
Use Midway for domestic ﬂights. As one of the busiest
airports in the world, O’Hare suffers from congestion
more often than not.
Use the L train.
Service runs to both O’Hare and Midway airports, and
you can get unlimited day passes for less than the
typical airport taxi fare.
San Francisco, California
Weather can change quickly, and the average temp is
62 degrees—even in the summer.
If you want to impress a business relation with one of
the many amazing food spots in the city, ﬁrst make sure
you can get a seat.
Pay attention to public transport.
Don’t assume your BART ticket works on MUNI, and
don’t expect to hail a taxi from the sidewalk. If you
need a ride, call a cab company directly or use your
preferred rideshare service.
Houston is warm all year round, but summers are
especially hot and humid. Expect the temperature
(and humidity level) to be around 100.
Rent a car.
Houston has a lot of highway miles, which means you’ll
pay more for taxi fare, and airport shuttle service is
limited in where it can take you.
Use an app to ﬁnd parking.
It can be difficult to ﬁnd, especially downtown.
