An Introduction to ... Like A Local

“In your hometown, we’re sure you have your favorite places to eat, drink, celebrate, or relax. You probably know the best place to shop, the most beautiful spot to watch the sunset, and the most intimate of cafes to enjoy coffee with a friend. Now, imagine you could learn this kind of information about the places you travel before you even get there. With Michelin and Peter Greenberg’s “Like a Local” series, you’ll know where to go and what to do to ensure the best travel experience, exactly as if you were a local yourself.”

More than a century ago, the founders of our company published the first Michelin Guide as a way to promote driving and give motorists practical information about where to service and repair their cars, find quality accommodations and a good meal. It was a way to get more people driving and help them feel more confident doing it. This part of the business has grown into an entire travel and lifestyle category that now includes travel guides, maps, and of course the MICHELIN hotel & restaurant Guide which has become the global benchmark in gourmet dining.



  • New Orleans
  • Q: How can I help restore the city after Hurricane Katrina while in New Orleans?
  • A: Even if you are only in the area for a short period of time, there are many opportunities for you to help out. In the Lower 9th ward, one of the roughest part of the city, there is a volunteer camp run by Americorp volunteers in an old school that was completely gutted by the flooding. You stay in the bunks in the classrooms upstairs and come down for breakfast at 7 a.m., pack your own lunch, and head out to the build site to start your day of volunteering. After your work day, come back to the site for a hot dinner. You can coordinate work through Habitat for Humanity’s New Orleans branch, who can help you figure out lodging and your building site.
