Dare to do something different this Saturday. Here are six travel websites to up your game when it comes to planning a weekend activity, stellar first date or family outing.
Kijubi: What could you be doing? Dust off your stale cubicle life. This is a great resource for active vacationers, friends looking to gift “experiences” to their besties, or couples and families looking for the thrill of adventure on land, in the air, or in the water.
Urban Daddy: Get ready to push the envelope. Whether you want to get into a private strip poker party in Vegas, go to a new sporting lounge in New York City or discover an eccentric hotel overseas – this is the site that will instantly put you “in the know.”
Thrillist: More of a man-zine than a travel website, Thrillist can help you get to know your own backyard a little better. Full of gear and gadget trends as it is dating tips and nightlife hot spots. Enjoy, Dude.
EpicThrills: A luxe-minded flash-sale site for the adventurous. Members only, but pretty open if you sign up with your email.
Red Tricycle: A hip family-travel newsletter and webzine for the West Coast set. Featuring Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles and San Diego. Parents can find out what’s on right now. Enter your email address for the news, and click through to the zine for those who can’t wait.
Weekend Sherpa: If you live in the Bay Area or Southern California, Weekend Sherpa delivers fresh finds for those who like to play outdoors and off the beaten path. Bring your bike, backpack or board. Kids welcome too.
