Wikivoyage:Tourist office

Welcome to the tourist office

The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.

Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!

This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Queries regarding general information on non-travel topics may be made at Wikipedia's Reference desk; some topics tangentially related to travel include:

  • the Humanities desk, which deals with geopolitics, culture, and human geography
  • the Science desk, which deals with natural processes, physical geography, and engineering (vehicles, transportation design, etc.)

Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.

Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after two weeks of inactivity.

Want a faster answer?

How can I get my question answered?

  • Explain clearly what you want to know.
  • Provide a short heading that gives the general topic of the question.
  • Tell us what part of the world your question applies to.
  • Don't post personal contact information – it will be removed. We'll answer here within a few days.
  • Don't post questions that common sense or a search engine can answer in a couple of seconds.

About Texas I-35 caravanEdit

A caravan occurred on I-35 in Texas in October 2020. Where was this section (Exit 187) and this section (3:56 to 4:20) of Interstate 35 shot at? Asked by: 2605:A000:1612:A033:1093:5933:A803:6957 02:21, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

There is a list of all the exits for I-35 in Texas at wikipedia:Interstate_35_in_Texas. Exit 187 is near wikipedia:Lake_McQueeney. I didn't watch the video, but maybe you get the answer from that article about I-35. RudolfRed (talk) 22:06, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Unfortunately, we at Wikivoyage are not equipped to offer advice on immigration. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website may have more information for you. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 17:28, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

What are some travel destination recommendations for Thanksgiving?Edit

My wife and I will not be celebrating Thanksgiving with family this year and are looking for travel ideas and recommendations for the unique circumstances of 2020. We live in San Francisco and are open to taking a road trip or air travel. Asked by: Apaternite (talk) 08:28, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Here's some general advice, although someone living in the US or California would perhaps be able to come up with better suggestions.
Firstly, a road trip would from a COVID point of view be safer than flying where you'd probably meet hundreds of passengers and staff in terminals and onboard planes. Likewise outdoors and countyside attractions would be safer compared to ones in a big city and indoors. This time of the year I guess the weather isn't particularly inviting for outdoor activities in the northern US (or the mountains), so perhaps you should to head south, for instance to southern California or Arizona. Some national park or some smaller towns could perhaps be interesting to explore; like Sedona, Death Valley National Park or places along El Camino Real?
Then purely touristic places (with no permanent inhabitants) like Nevada's casino towns including Las Vegas could also be an option because due to the pandemic there are less people going there. --Ypsilon (talk) 15:47, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
