I was writing an article and got to a part where I use the verb "to access." Then a quick search online showed me that it's not really common to use it with places. Now I don't know which substitute I should use so it doesn't sound incorrect.
"The quest encourages you to access many areas of the gameworld in order to find the ranger stations."
I was thinking "go to," but it sounded weird and simplistic in my ear. Maybe "traverse," but I'm not sure about its usage (I'm not a native speaker, btw).
