How do you find your way around when you’re visiting a new city? Do you pick up a souvenir map in the hotel lobby and hope it will show you where to go? Perhaps you will rely on the internet to search for tourist attractions. But how do you know where you want to go? And how much data will you use up that way? What if there was a way you could have access to hundreds of suggested walking routes from seasoned travellers at your fingertips?
There is a way! And you can have access to an unlimited resource.
GPSmyCity’s new subscription service
It is now possible, with GPSmyCity, to purchase an annual subscription for all of their travel articles and walking routes for over 1000 cities worldwide. This is a new business model for GPSmyCity, and it makes a lot of sense to me. You used to have to purchase each walking route individually at a few dollars each, and you can still do it that way if you prefer. But now, you can find your way easily with access to everything (unlimited) for one year for only $18.99. If you want access to only the travel articles, the cost is even lower — only $12.99 per year.
What exactly are you purchasing? If you’re not familiar with GPSmyCity, there are literally thousands of captivating travel articles equipped with navigation technology that will turn your mobile device into your personal tour guide. It uses your GPS technology, so you don’t need to use up your mobile data at all. In fact, you don’t even need a phone plan for a foreign country in order to use GPSmyCity on your phone! GPSmyCity travel articles will guide you through the areas of your interest so easily, you won’t have to worry about how to find your way to each site or point of interest.
Arrive in Paris, France, for example, and open your GPSmyCity app. You will find a Paris, a Paris museums walking route, and a tour of the Luxembourg Gardens (and at least 25 more exceptional options for exploring Paris).
When we were in Paris, we used this walking route for Montmartre and this one for the Covered Passageways. Both had interesting facts and background information and were super easy to use. Plus, they saved us time. Who can’t use more time when you’re exploring a new city? GPSmyCity will help you find your way through Paris, too! (or Rome, or New York City!)
How GPSmyCity helps you find your way
All you have to do is download the GPSmyCity app (found on iTunes and GooglePlay) to your mobile device free. Then choose a city you want to explore and find the list of available walking routes and travel articles. Which ones most appeal to you? Download those free if you just want to be able to read them. Pay for the GPS-embedded article if you want it to guide you through the city without using WiFi or data. Better yet, sign up for an annual subscription. For about the price of a single travel guidebook, you’ll have access to EVERYTHING for an entire year.
You don’t have to just use GPSmyCity for your foreign travels. Use it to explore your own city better, too. You’ll find information about restaurants, new art galleries, and so much more. Think you already know everything there is to know about your hometown? Check what GPSmyCity has to offer — you might be surprised!
Find your way by creating a custom route
You can also create your own walking guide. Just choose the ‘Create Your Own Self-guided Walking Tour’ option. You’ll be presented with a list of all the popular attractions for a given location. Click on the sites you’d like to include in your tour, and GPSmyCity automatically creates a tour from the starting point you designate. Give your walk a name and provide your email address, and instructions for retrieving your custom walking route will be emailed to you!
I’ve partnered with GPSmyCity
You may already know that I have many of my own travel articles published on GPSmyCity. (If you didn’t know, I’m so embarrassed that I haven’t made that clear!) You can actually use my articles to guide you (via GPS) to the same destinations I’ve visited. It will be almost as if my voice is in your head as you follow my footsteps and re-create my experiences. Not just mine, of course, but literally 1000’s of wonderful articles written by travelers like me who have been there! For that reason, GPSmyCity and I have partnered to make it easy for you to be your own tour guide.
Here’s a summary of all your options:
- Just read my blog and be inspired by it. Take notes to help you find the sights for yourself.
- Read my blog articles and use the GPSmyCity links to download the articles FREE to your own device
- You can upgrade a single article for $1.99 and be set to go with GPS-embedded coordinates to guide you.
