July 25, 2017

Do you need some ideas for a weekend adventure? These apps may be just what you’ve been looking for! With a simple tap on your smartphone, you can find cool things for you and your family to enjoy in your own town as well as safety tips for your weekend excursions. Check out the apps below for more information.

4 Apps for Summer Weekend Fun

  1. Day trip app. You don’t have to go on a vacation to a far away destination to relax. You can take a day trip around your own town and explore new places with the Field Trip app. The app “runs in the background on your phone” and when you’re close to something interesting “it pops up a card with details about the location.” You can find more information here.
  1. Family fun activity app. If you need a fun family activity for this weekend, try an app like Yuggler. You can search for events based on your children’s age, the cost of admission, and whether the event or activity is indoors or outdoors. You can also choose activities based on categories (such as educational activities, camps, sports, playgrounds, nature fun, shows, and animal attractions). If you’re interested in learning more check out this website.
  1. Outdoor safety app. From camping to sailing, if you and your kids are going to spend a lot of time in the great outdoors, consider downloading the Survival Guide app. This app will help you build a fire on your camping trip, find edible plants in the wild, and identify dangerous animals. If someone gets hurt while you’re hiking, this app offers basic survival medical tips. And if you need help out at sea, the app also provides open sea survival tips. More information about the Survival Guide app is listed here. 
  1. Sun protection app. If you do decide to you spend the weekend out in the sun you’ll need a special app to protect your loved ones from dangerous sun UV rays. One app you should consider is UVLens. This app will tell you the UV forecast for the day for your location. It will also tell you at what time you’ll need to apply sun protection and what level of protection you’ll need (such as sunblock, sunglasses, hats for sun protection, or clothing for sun protection). Check out more information at the UVLens website.
