Heh. I've had good help from tourism departments/Visitors centers many times. Good call. They're easy to overlook but if you get a good employee, you can tell they just love to make sure you enjoy your stay in their area.I'd call the "visitor's center." They have an interest in your enjoying your stay so you'll come back and recommend it to others, and they may also have coupons for discounts at lodging. Also, they think in terms of the public. One person's area to avoid is another person's destination. Do you want to avoid noise, crime, bleak surroundings, family groups, etc.
