The bright light at the end of winter is the thought of summer vacations and getaways. After you book that fabulous vacation/getaway, download a  great travel app that will make your vacation fun and fabulous.  Here are our picks for three must have travel apps for your upcoming vacations.

  • Are we there yet?! Described as the ‘superhero’ of navigation apps, ‘Waze’ has evolved into a favorite app for parents.  The app gives you a quick main route but also gives users alternate routes based on real-time information from other drivers. ‘Waze’ also provides warnings of upcoming police and road hazards.  The apps’ most popular feature is the ability to share your trip status with friends and family members via messages.  To learn more about this popular navigation app, please visit waze.com
  • Gogobot.  This app is great for booking hotel deals and vacation rentals.  The apps most popular feature is the ‘attractions’ feature.  This feature lists the most popular touristy and trendy things to do based on your travel tribe (community of fellow travelers with similar travel likes)  The app also includes weather forecasting for your destination.  For more information, please visit www.gogobot.com.
  • I have a taste for gelato! This one is a food lovers’ dream app. ‘Foodspotting’ is based on the concept that food is meant to be shared visually.  Type in the particular food you are craving and recommendations pop-up through visually stunning images of the dish.  It is a local food guide based on dishes not restaurants.  For more information, please visit foodspotting.com.
  • Sunscreen.  No this app doesn’t list the most popular sunscreens available.  It detects the UVI levels/rating of the sun in your current location and sets a timer to tell you when you’re due for another application of sunscreen.  ‘Sunscreen’ is a must have for trips to the beach, theme parks, pool side visits and a day of sight-seeing/touring.  For more information, please visit www.sunscreenreapplyingreminderapp.com

All of these apps are our favorite kind of app, they’re all FREE! Download them today.

To keep the spice in your marriage, you have to be willing to switch it up, especially when it comes to date night. The problem is that many of us do the same thing for date night over and over again until the thrill is gone. We sap the specialness (is that a word) out of what should be a sacred time between us and our spouse. When it’s not special, it’s just routine and date night shouldn’t be part of your boring, regular routine.

You break out of boring date nights by creating a date night experience and that’s exactly what we are doing next month.

Last year we told you about all of the fun that you could experience with your family at the US Open in New York, whether you were a huge tennis fan or not. The US Open is more than a few matches it is a total experience of things to do and see.

This year we’re going to experience the fun first hand with just the two of us and report back with what we find. If we hang out with Serena (not likely) we’ll let you know that too.

Instead of another night of boring, we’re creating an experience filled with fun that we’ll talk about for years to come and we want you to join us by using a special discount code that’s just for our readers.

Join Us

We have a special promotion that allows you to use our special code “BBMWK” and receive 50% off or buy 1 get 1 free for select tickets to the following sessions:

  • 9/3 Evening Session
  • 9/8 Day Session
  • 9/9 Day Session

Click here to get your tickets: http://www.ticketmaster.com/promo/cmqtg6

Can you see yourself and your spouse laughing, smiling, enjoying the match? Creating memories that you’ll talk about for years to come? We can, we will, and I hope you will too. See you at the US Open.

This post is sponsored by the US Open.  As always, all opinions are my own.
