Next batch of 'little ways' tips

If you are in Salt Lake City on a Saturday, you can hear a free organ concert at Temple Square. If you are in Amsterdam on Wednesdays, sit in on a free rehearsal of the world-renowned Amsterdam Sinfonietta orchestra (Concertgebouw, Concertgebouwplein 2-6, 011-31/20-671-8345, concertgebouw.nl).

When visiting museums and historic or religious places, check out their rules on taking pictures. Some allow pictures with no flash. Some don't allow pictures at all. Obey the rules because the guards don't hesitate to confiscate film or memory cards.

Book the first flight out in the morning. Chances are your plane arrived at the airport the previous evening and you won't have to worry about an incoming plane which could be subject to delays.

Save money on a tour of New Orleans French Quarter. The French Quarter is a National Historic area and is part of the National Park Service. Park rangers lead free daily walks to the Mississippi River, just over the levee from the visitor center, to share the story of how it all began. Group size is limited to 25.
