Moving to a new city can be exciting, but also difficult. You won’t know where anything is and the familiarity that you had with your former home will have vanished. As a result, it is a good idea to learn a few things about your new city before you arrive, as this can help to ease your transition.
Figure out the location of the closest grocery stores. If you have special dietary needs, locate the nearest place that will meet your needs. For example, if you have celiac disease, you might want to figure out where to buy gluten free food before anything else.
It’s much easier to use public transportation to get around a city, rather than drive, when you first arrive there. Find out what the most efficient methods of public transit are and use them whenever you have to get from point A to point B.
What to Avoid
Not every area of the city will be safe, so make sure that you avoid the rougher parts of town. You can read up on the most dangerous parts of the city online or simply ask some locals about places that you should avoid, especially after dark.
