Have you ever been to a new city and felt overwhelmed at the choices of too many things to do and visit? Don’t you wish that someone could tell you where to go? Well, GPSMyCity may be just the app for you with it’s downloadable self guided city tours.
GPSMyCity has been available since 2009 and now with more than 6,500 articles covering more than 1,000 cities, they have a very comprehensive library of travel guides available at your fingertips. The GPSMyCity app is available on IOS and Android, and is free to download.
Their self-guided city walks are free to download and turns your smartphone into a personal tour guide. The travel articles and maps are also available offline so you don’t have to incur data roaming charges or find a wifi hot spot. This is what I like as I don’t have to carry bulky guide books or maps with me.
While the articles are free to download, the best features of the app are available on the paid version. These include GPS guided directions to the attraction of your choice and the ability to create an offline map customized to the list of attractions that you want to visit.
While many of the articles cover the main attractions of the city, there are also articles that relate to off the beaten path attractions or interests that might not be obvious to the casual traveler. This is especially so if it’s a small city that is not well covered by the main travel guides.
