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: What is the best way to see some of the famous cemeteries in New Orleans?
  • A: Why would you just walk through the cemeteries when you can get some of the most interesting back stories from the gravedigger himself? That’s right, at Lafayette Cemetery, there are haunted tours. New Orleans is below sea level, so graves cannot be six feet under, but must be in above ground tombs. In fact, bodies buried underground would get loosened by any flooding the city and float up to the surface. Instead of a kitschy tourist trap, this experience focuses on a more historic approach, providing insight on the unique burial system and some Voodoo traditions, both past and present. The tours are during the day and at night.
