A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how to plan a trip using Twitter, which was inspired by a new report that found more travelers are turning to social media and community review sites to plan their trips. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I fall into that social-travel-planning group. I love crowd sourcing, which is why, after the success of leveraging Twitter to plan my upcoming trip to Portland, I decided to use Foursquare next.
Many people fire up this popular social check-in app to earn points and badges or score deals each time they visit a local restaurant, venue, airport, museum, etc. But Foursquare can be a useful tool to plan a trip before you even hit the road. Not only does the app help you discover great places but it organizes all the information in one location, and once you have arrived at your destination, Foursquare will send you to-do list reminders. How great is that?!
Here are few ways to use Foursquare to plan your next trip:
