Travel Like a Local: The Free Like A Local Travel Guide App & Website Can Help! by Sheri B Doyle
Experiencing a destination like a local is a new trend in travel. The website, LikeALocalGuide.com, has risen to the demand of travelers in recent years. On both the website and the app there are tips from locals in over 5000 cities on what to see and do, where to eat and what to experience in different cities around the world. Locals list tours and experiences they offer, helping to build more memorable experiences for travelers. Interested in meeting up with a local while you are visiting a new city? Many of the contributors are up for that, too!
Travelers can ask questions about cities or regions they are traveling in and get responses from locals, with suggestions, tips or insider information. Locals will suggest special events or parties usually unknown to those of us traveling with our guidebooks. Ideas range from full-moon beach parties to local community pools where anyone can cool down on a hot day.
Looking for local maps and directions but don’t have cell service or Wi-Fi? Not a problem with the LikeALocal Offline City Guide app. Their map works with GPS so you can find your way around without roaming fees. The app also offers all of the information on the website on your phone or tablet.
If you are an expert on your city you can become a contributor either by offering advice or a tour, your experience or just help answer travelers' questions.
