We love to travel, we have done many trips with other family members, and it is interesting to see how people plan for their trip. We have some serious planners in our family, some have perhaps missed their ideal dream career as a travel planner, because they are really into it.
They really do believe that planning is almost as fun as going on the trip itself. The fun part of travel is figuring out what to do while you are there. So for you travelers this summer who like to plan ahead, or if you like to see what’s going on in your vacation area as you are there, these apps will help you have an even more enjoyable time on your vacation.
We really enjoy checking out the parks when we are in a new state, the wildlife and local features are great to see and a relaxing way to spend some time. This app uses a database of parks and public lands so you can figure out exactly where you want to go, anywhere in the country. You get to choose from different activities, like wild life watching, swimming, playgrounds and more. Just search from your current location and you will have some fantastic options.
