I started Travel After Five because I wanted a resource for myself – as a traveling consultant, I would get the opportunity to visit a lot of really neat cities. However, during the day you are working, and you are home on the weekends leaving a very limited amount of time to actually see a town. What I started running into was the fact that so many tourist attractions would be closed after 5:00 pm when we got off work! I wanted to visit some interesting sites, but it was frustrating having to search the times on dozens of different websites. I wanted Travel After Five to highlight what you can do in town when you’re just visiting clients or in town for a conference, and have limited time in the evenings. Over time, this site has also evolved into providing general advice and product reviews for business travelers. My goal is to help you get the most out of your work trip, and to make sure it’s less stressful.
