Who needs travel guides anymore? Plan a great vacation off the beaten track of tourist traps by relying on information from locals about where they like to hang – all via handy mobile apps! There are many more, but here are four suggestions to get your started on your next great adventure!
1. Like a Local
According to its website, “Like A Local Guide is about finding those cool and cozy spots that locals’ like to hang out at and missing the tourist traps. We have built this awesome web site and a mobile app where the travel tips are being created by well-selected local editors of each city who know what they’re talking about.” Each recommendation comes with the sections “Why locals love it,” “Why you should visit it,” and “Special tip.”
This app searches for local events – but only those that fit in your schedule according to your smartphone calendar. It also has a social component which tells you what your friends who also use the app are planning to attend.
This app gives you the options to pose your own questions to real locals. It takes information such as locals who have checked in places on other apps like Foursquare and delivers your question straight to them. You can also send general questions to local experts about what cool events are happening when you’ll be in the area.
This Google-produced app is like a local tour guide that lives in your smartphone. It pulls information from local publications about exciting and interesting events, and also works by GPS, popping up information about certain landmarks, restaurants, bars, live music, etc as you approach them.
What stops them is not only their condition, which saps their energy and willingness to reach out, but also things they hear on the television set and the people around them that people with mental illnesses are crazy, dangerous, losers, weak or whatever
What made the reception different and more like a celebration was that towards the end, typical music of the area, which has a slow but catchy beat, prompted some young men to form a group and perform ‘dabke,’ a dance popular at joyful celebrations the traditional music and stylized steps making for a lively performance.hollister outlet
This seems unlikely to happen to Spieth, the 20 year old next big thing in golf who last year became the first teenager to win a PGA Tour event in more than 80 years and who last month fell just three shots short of becoming the youngest Masters champion ever.mcm backpack for sale
