It must have been frightening, in the days before the internet, to move to a new place that you knew little about. The culture, the people, the things to do--all of these things are now at our fingertips thanks to Google and others.

However, it can still be difficult to get used to a new town, especially if youíre moving far away from your previous home. So, in this article, Iím going to give you some tips on how to investigate your new town. That way, youíll have a good idea of what kind of things you can do for fun, where to eat, and countless other things you might want to know about the place youíll soon call home.

The lay of the land

A good place to start your search is on Google Maps. From here you can explore your future neighborhood; find out how close you are to grocery stores, parks, hospitals, and even get an estimate on how long your work commute will take each day.

Since many of these places will have ratings and reviews, you can also take some time to read the reviews for popular places around town.

Eating around town

It can seem like youíre always flipping a coin when you eat at a new restaurant. When you move to a new town, youíll have to discover new favorite places to eat. However, you donít have to do these experiments on your own.

Check out Yelp reviews for local restaurants and cafes to get a sense of the pricing and atmosphere. This way youíll give yourself the best possible chance of enjoying the experience.

Meeting new people

Making friends is hard enough as an adult. In todayís world, many people meet their friends online or through other connections, rather than simply hanging around with their neighbors.

Luckily, sites like Facebook and Meetup make it easier to introduce yourself to like-minded people.

Browse local meetups that youíre interested in, and donít be afraid to try out a new activity or attend a paint night--you might meet new people and discover a new hobby all at once.

Most towns have a strong presence on Facebook in terms of things like groups and events. Joining local groups will give you an idea of the type of things people do for fun around town and give you a way to introduce yourself to new people.

Read the news

Many towns are covered by a local or regional newspaper. They can often be found online or at a local library or cafe. These newspapers are often the key to discovering the good and the bad about your new home, tipping you off to the things youíll want to pay attention to when you move.

Have you ever visited a butterfly garden and marveled at how beautiful it was to see so many butterflies happily fluttering along flower to flower? Did you wish that you could have that same experience more often?

How about every day?

By turning your flower garden into a strategically designed one that attracts butterflies this could be your reality every day! Hereís how to get started:

First, you should know that butterflies eat from different plants than caterpillars. And while you might be tempted to leave out the plants that sustain caterpillars if you want a consistent butterfly presence caterpillars are a critical piece to that puzzle.

No caterpillars mean no butterflies.

But choosing which plants to add to your garden for caterpillars is going to depend on your region. This list tells you what to plant based on butterfly species https://www.nwf.org/en/Garden-for-Wildlife/Wildlife/Attracting-Butterflies

Some plants that provide caterpillar are dill, fennel, milkweed, white clover, and parsley.

Nectar plants, from which butterflies eat from, include the butterfly bush, cosmos, purple coneflower, and zinnia. Alyssum. These are also fairly easy flowers to grow, which is great news if you donít naturally have a green thumb.

Some butterflies also like fruit! Attract them by placing overripe fruit such as oranges, pears, and melons in a dish in your butterfly garden.

Youíll want to create variety in plants that you add to your garden. Aim for a layout much like the one you would find in a more ďnaturalĒ setting. Look to add shrubs and trees in addition to perennials. Varying the heights of plants also helps to create a natural atmosphere.

Attract the eye of butterflies by clumping flower types together. Itís easier for them to see a larger expanse of bright colorful flowers than a couple ones spotted here and there. When they see a large swath of similar buds they know itís a good place to snack!!

Shrubs and trees are critical to your butterfly garden. They provide safety for caterpillars, shield your garden from wind which in turn encourages butterflies the ability to explore and also provides butterflies shelter to rest safely at night

Plan your garden to have plenty of time in the sunlight. Butterflies are cold-blooded and need to spend their mornings warming up in the sun before setting off for the day! Having a rock or two in these sunny areas will encourage butterflies to stay awhile and warm their wings. Ideally, these sunny spots will get around 6 hours of sun.

Another lesser known feature to include in your butterfly garden are what is known as puddling stations. A puddling station is essentially a shallow container filled with sand and water for butterflies to stop and perch on to drink. Have a few of these stations throughout your butterfly garden!
