Weekly Resource Highlight | Roadtrippers

Roadtrippers-treesThis week we want to introduce you to a favorite trip planning resource. This resource is a fantastic app you will fall in love with.  This app and website are so valuable when traveling the United States. Plan out your destination and find awesome excursions, good eats and more along the way and at your vacation spot. Roadtrippers is even beneficial if you are looking for something to do around where you live.

I have used this tool to find waterfalls, restaurants and more. Roadtrippers is easy to use and satisfying in the way it provides information. Each thing it finds for you is packed with pictures, hours of operation, reviews and more. Here are a few pros and cons of this service.

Cons

Not every establishment is found on it and thus it leaves things out still.

Roadtrippers is newer and thus reviews/votes are not as full, look other places to compare reviews on activities, dinners and stays.

Trip planning isn’t the easiest, but it has improved over time, or I’ve gotten better at it.

Roadtrippers is only United States based for now.

Pros

Roadtrippers has both Apple and Android Apps.

Many activities, food locations and hotel locations are found on the tool.

Roadtrippers is a comprehensive tool, it includes many more features than typical travel resources.

You can connect navigation apps to it easily.

Roadtrippers has both apps and an active website.

Their blog is “on point”

The suggestion: Try the app for a trip and comment below how it helped or worked out!

Resource Highlight Intro: Each week I will choose a resource that either interests me or I feel could be useful to you. Check it out on Wednesdays and comment your thoughts and Waynexperiences about using the resource.

This week I want to share the resource Wayn with you.  Wayn describes themselves like this…

WAYN App connects you to the world’s largest social travel community, allowing you to:

My experience with their system was and is good. They offer a fun and user friendly interface, almost game like, the way they handle things. They allow for you to find places to visit, build your profile and interact with others. My suggestion is to get an account with them and use it as much or little as you desire. It will come in handy in booking hotels and other activities, they even have a great way to see locations with other’s photos. Lastly I think it is always a good to get reviews and more information about a place before you visit. They have made a fantastic avenue for you to read up on your destination before you visit (Example: Vancouver).
