In our attempts to get away from it all we sometimes settle for the tried and true vacation destinations. Add this clever and unique app to your Mac and explore unique attractions throughout the good old U.S. of A. These are not your father’s vacation places.
Fun. Oddball. Strange.
That someone would go to the trouble to create an inexpensive Mac app that highlights vacation destinations is not news.
That the vacation destinations would be a digital compendium of the fun, oddball, strange, unique, and noteworthy– but not so much normal– is newsworthy.
That’s the case with the app Offbeat Locations; a simple app which maps out– literally on a map– all the oddest, weirdest, most noteworthy but non-typical vacation destinations near you (or, far away).
Here’s an example. Let’s say you’re heading to California. San Diego is home to the World’s Largest Lemon.
Las Vegas is a popular destination. Visit the Glow-in-the-Dark Kiss Mini Golf attraction.
You get the idea, right?
Not only do you get a list of more than 16,000 quirky vacation destinations around the U.S., you also get the nearby details; map, address, weather conditions, even Yelp reviews.
You’ll have fun searching and planning to visit these odd vacation locations, but who carries their Mac around on a vacation?
Use the companion Offbeat Tourist Attractions app for the iPhone while you’re on the road.
Both apps are great, inexpensive, and easily provide you with dozens of nearby vacation destinations that probably were not on your original list, but should be.
