Sunday Funday: Exploring Williamsburg Brooklyn with Like A Local Tours

October 23, 2015 by Cultural Xplorer: I find that the best way to explore any city is by doing it like a local.

The modern traveler: I think the word that most defines today’s modern traveler is savvy. Savvy travelers are looking for a hyper local experience. Sure they might want to enjoy some of the traditional tourist sights in…
