Travel Tip: Get The Most Out of Your Road Trip With These Apps

road 6Going on a road trip? Don’t make it a race to get from point A to point B. Some apps can help you discover new sites along the way.

Google’s Field Trip notifies you when there’s a point of interest, based on your chosen categories and location. If you’re connected to a Bluetooth device, it sends you an audio alert.

If you must stop at a highway exit, the iExit app tells you what services are available. If McDonald’s is your road trip tradition, you can mark specific chain locations as favorites to learn when they’re coming up next.

Roadtrippers is a trip-planning app. Plug in your starting and ending point, as well as attractions you’re interested in seeing. It outlines the route for you, with stops at museums, amusement parks, and what it calls “weird stuff.”
