To everyone living in our community of apartments in Round Rock — welcome to the New Year! Are you fully-invested in this whole, “New year, new me” philosophy? Do you want to make some big changes in your life in 2018? When people feel like they’re stuck in a rut, the new year is a good time to bust out of your slump and go explore the world.
It’s easier than ever to travel affordably. There are dozens of websites out there solely dedicated to helping travelers find cheap flights. The same is true of lodging. With all these resources at your fingertips, the only thing keeping you from traveling is fear of the unknown! Luckily, technology also has an answer for that.
Both the App Store and the Google Play Store are filled with apps designed to help travelers navigate unknown parts of the world. Some apps are more useful than others, so we’ve decided to highlight a few of our favorites in the blog below. Check out the list of top-rated travel apps, and be sure to share the link to this post with your friends and neighbors at your community of Round Rock apartments.
This is both an app and a website, and it’s one of the most useful tools available for travelers hoping to book cheap flights. Skyscanner lets you compare prices for different dates, so you can save money if you’re willing to be flexible with your travel dates. Skyscanner is also useful for booking hotels, as it has the same date-comparing functionality.
Skyscanner works best when you’re willing to be flexible. In addition to showing you prices for various dates, it also has a “Top Deals” section that lets you see which destinations are on sale from your local airport. If you know you want to travel, but don’t know where to, Skyscanner is the app for you.
So, you’ve decided where you want to travel. Congrats! Now, you just have to figure out what you’re going to do while you’re there. If you’re traveling to a big city, sometimes just walking around is enough of an adventure. Most big cities are best seen from the sidewalks, as you walk from one monument to another.
Citymapper is an app designed to help you make the most of your walk, as it aggregates information from locals who know the best routes to take. It’s like Google Maps if Google Maps were created by locals who have your best interests in mind.
We hope you never need to use this app on your travels, but in the event that it rains, this app will be your new best friend. Dark Sky is one of the most accurate weather apps on the market, and it’ll tell you what the weather is going to look like hour-by-hour. You’ll be able to see if the rain is going to ruin your whole day, or if it’ll just be a momentary delay. This is the best weather app on the market, so make sure you download it before you embark on your travels!
