3. Uber

Uber makes getting to places easy & quick. I love taking advantage of their “Carpool” option when I’m in big cities. Carpool means that you share your ride with 1-2 other people at a time. It saves you money, helps the environment, & only takes a little extra time – like 10 minutes. Brock & I utilized this a bunch while in Los Angeles.

The app is free, download it here.

4. Instagram

I love using Instagram to plan trips- especially ones close to home! Whenever you see a beautiful photo & you are interested in visiting that location, click on the location above the photo. Or you can plan a trip by searching the city / place before getting there. Browse through the photos & see if any photos stand out. Click on all the intriguing photos & see if it has a more descriptive location or blurb. If it doesn’t, don’t hesitate to reach out to the photo’s owner, the community on IG are super kind & helpful!
