Getting Ready for Overnight Guests
Offer Maps and MagazinesYou want to entertain your guests, but you don't have time. (That, or you just can't handle the local marina's "Sharks!" attraction one more time.) But you can point them in the right direction. First, provide street, bus, and subway maps so they'll know how to get around. For activity ideas, start with the entertainment or About Town section of the local paper, says Stacy DeBroff, coauthor of Mom Central: The Ultimate Family Organizer. Guests can check out play, movie, or concert listings, as well as those for other local events. (See Entertainment Resources for Your Houseguests for more ideas.)
Also, offer guests local magazines for inspiration, plus other magazines and books, so they'll have something to flip through before bedtime. With paperbacks you finished years ago, write "Please take me home" on them, says DeBroff. "Guests start reading and may want to finish them."
