‘ATL Up and Away: Travel Tips with Rick Steves’ urges ditching long lines during ‘shoulder season’ – WABE

Atlanta is home to the world’s busiest airport, offering abundant domestic and international flights. Team “City Lights” is helping eager travelers prepare for their next adventure with our recurring series: “ATL Up and Away: Travel Tips with Rick Steves.”

Steves is the very popular public television and radio host, bestselling guidebook author and activist who encourages people to broaden their perspectives through travel. Each month, Rick joins “City Lights” as our travel contributor and shares his advice on making the most out of your time away from Atlanta.

In today’s interview, Steves spoke with “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes about “shoulder season” (the period of time between a region’s peak season and offseason) travel to Europe.

“I always like to say that there are two IQs of European travelers: those who wait in lines and those who don’t wait in line,” Steves said.
