Whether you’re trekking to the mountains, cruising to the beach, or sightseeing in the city this spring, these apps will make the journey a little more fun.
5. Bring Fido
If you follow me on instagram, you’ll see lots of pics of my two black lab pups, Junebug and Lula ( blondie is their friend Buddy). Junebug and Lula travel with Ryan and I a lot and the Bring Fido app has been so helpful when it comes to planning our route. Bring Fido is a world-wide pet friendly hotel and travel directory with info on dog-friendly hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants, off-leash parks, reviews, and more. If you like to travel with pets- this app is a must.
This app is perfect when visiting an unfamiliar city because it offers unique places of interest provided by locals and seasoned travelers for that area. Last fall I visited San Francisco for the first time, and with the Afar app I shopped and ate my way through San Fran’s different neighborhoods with ease.
The digital mix cd… I’m sure most everyone has discovered Spotify by now but it is too awesome not to share. Check out my latest road trip playlist here. You simply can’t go on a road trip without tunes.
For someone who wants to support local businesses and see quirky roadside attractions along the way, the Roadtripper app is perfect. Just type in your starting location and end point and the app provides cool, local spots along your route. I will absolutely be using their trip planner this spring and summer! Their company mantra says it all…
“Driving down long stretches of asphalt, pulling over at a local diner for some grub, and discovering the most incredible roadside wonders. Co-founders James Fisher and Tatiana Parent suffer from an incurable case of wanderlust. So, they decided to design a web and mobile platform that streamlines discovery, planning, booking and navigation into one engaging road trip planner. At its core, Roadtrippers aims to inspire and promote awareness for local, offbeat and culturally stimulating experiences. After all, as Emerson’s taught us, it’s all about the journey.”
