During the holidays, there are so many activities and events happening around town. Don’t miss out and be a part of the fun! Check out the 5 apps that can help you find best holiday activities!
Eventful – Find the Best Things in Town
Eventful is an amazing app that is available for both Android and iPhone users. You’re certainly already familiar with Facebook’s Events feature. If not, it’s a feature that allows you to see events that your friends are planning and are inviting you to. What if I told you that there’s an app that can show you all the events happening around you without any restrictions?
This app allows you to search the events or sort them by date, hour and interest. For instance, you can search for activities on Christmas day and the app will list you all the Christmas related events close by!
The results of your search always have an address and starting hour information attached to the event name. You can even tag your favorite events and performers so that next time you can get a reminder or alarm when one is close to you!
Foursquare – Your Free City Guide
Foursquare is available on all popular mobile platforms. Most of the places you are going to get as search results have already been visited by a Foursquare community member and so you’ll have a good sense of what it’ll be like. You’ll have the inside scoop!
You can find almost anything by using this app – various fun activities spread all across the urban areas, places where you can taste magical dishes, and even some less familiar places that definitely deserve more attention.
Meetup – Browse through Local Meetups
This app has more of a social media character. There is a strong community behind it and you can browse through hundreds and hundreds of meetup types. Those types usually revolve around various interests so this app can also be used as an event look up tool.
The Meetup app has many online users spread all around the globe, so having it on your phone while traveling can certainly bring new experiences and people in your life. People use it for many interesting things – there are events such as dads meetups, fitness meetups, tech meetups etc.
Eventbrite – Fun local Events
In case you’re spending the holidays in a city you’ve never visited before, we’ve got the app for you! Eventbrite will have knowing the ins and outs like a local. With this app you will know exactly when and where all the popular local events are. This app has no restrictions whatsoever. You will be able to browse through concerts, conferences, free events, fun stuff to do on Christmas and so on.
The developers of Eventbrite have even taken it one step further – now the app is connected with event organizers. This is why you can even get tickets for some of the events via mobile app. One more of its neat perks is the ability to personalize the list of events you want to see. There are maps, directions and tourist reviews also available through this app. Definitely a nice work by Eventbrite Entertainment’s team.
Like a Local – Uncover Hidden Spots on Your Map
This app is available for iPhone owners only. I savored it for the end because, according to Mashable, this app is an absolute champion in the category of convenience and accuracy about cool spots. Unlike other apps that allow various people to check in and write a review, Like a Local offers reviews posted only by locals. With over several thousand reviews available for dozens of cool spots and unique events this app offers it users a unique chance to enhance their holiday experience.
As you can see, there are a lot of useful mobile apps that are also very easy to get used to. If you decide to use any of them, you can surely expect to meet new people and experience something new, delightful and fun. Just imagine not missing out on any of the exciting activities on Christmas day.
