We all have dozens of travel articles pinned on Pinterest to remind us of things to do and sights to see on our next vacation. But how often do you actually refer to any of those when you find yourself in a new city?
Not often, right? The WiFi is spotty or your phone doesn’t work at all. So you won’t remember that really cute bar or the cave made of bones until the next time you see a picture of it online. If you’re like me, you take a more proactive approach, so you bookmark a bunch of locations on Google Maps to indicate the cool places you want to check out. But by the time you get there, you don’t even remember where you read about that one place or why you wanted to go there in the first place. You’re lucky if your GPS is even cooperating with you that day.
What are GPS-Guided Travel Articles, anyway?
Luckily, there’s an app for that. With GPSmyCity, you can download GPS-guided travel articles right to your phone. This means you’ll have access to easy directions from one city location to another, whether you have internet or not. You’ll be able to reference exactly what you wanted to see, read the author’s tips and comments about it, and get directions all in one convenient app (available for iPhone or Android). It’s like a city walking tour right in your pocket.
GPSmyCity allows you to download articles and guides for more than 700 cities all over the world, depending on where you want to go. You can download each article as an individual app for free so you can read all you want from anywhere, even when you’re not connected to the internet. You can also upgrade each article to the GPS-guided version so you can have all the information you need to go out there and see the city for yourself.
Sounds cool, right? Well, you can try it for free!

Quick technical note: If you click on any of the above links, you’ll first be prompted to download the GPSmyCity app. Once you do that, the article will come up, and you can click Upgrade to get the GPS-guided version for free.
So let my colorful commentary guide your vacation. The gnome and I are more than happy to show you around.
