Summer is coming fast. One of my favorite summer activities is taking roadtrips with the family. If you are headed out on the road, be it for a day trip or the whole summer, there are some great apps to help you on the way. I would love to share a few of my favorites with you.
For any trip you’re planning it’s great to have the right clothes packed. PackPoint will help you organize your suitcase based on trip details. All you do is input the where you are traveling, trip length, and your gender, then the type of trip you are planning. Business or pleasure, formal events or all casual. PackPoint will then make a list of clothes, accessories, toiletries and more that you will want to take along with you.
2: Along The Way
Most people research their destination to find cool things to do while they are there. With Along the way your adventures don’t have to begin when you arrive, you can find fun things to do all along the way. Begin by adding your starting point and destination and the app will search for food, sights and attractions on the way.
3: Field Trip
Ever wish you knew more about the places you visit? Field Trip will tell you all about your surrounding without the cost of a personal guide.
With Field Trip you will discover interesting things in the world around you. It helps you learn everything from the local history to the best places to hang out and shop.
Field Trip runs in the background on your phone and pops up when you are close to something interesting. You can either read the card or, if you have bluetooth or a headset, your phone will read it for you.
4: Free RV Campgrounds & Parking
Did you know that in every state you can find free places to stay for the night? This app shows you the local spots available to you. It is geared toward those traveling in an RV but if you’re in your car and looking for a spot to nap there are many listed that will accommodate your needs.
The places available include campgrounds, truck stops, casinos and chain stores.
Waze is a great app to help find out real time traffic and road info. It is a community based app that alerts you of accidents and other delays in traffic. Save time and money by avoiding situations before you get to them.
These are just a few great apps to help you on your trips this summer. Do you have a favorite? Share it below.
