I was recently asked to become a trusted traveler for a very cool site called Stay.com. I created two free shopping guides for women featuring my favorite small retailers in Boston and Washington, D.C. and I can't wait to hear what you think about them.
If you haven't heard about Stay.com, it's a resource worth knowing about. Stay is a travel app and website that allows you, the traveler, to curate city trips all over the world (instead of carrying a heavy guidebook). The app is free to download and offers lots of other handy features like the ability to access maps offline from your phone (translation= no roaming costs!).
There are lots of travel apps out there. I know. I find the selection pretty overwhelming. I decided to partner with Stay.com because the app and their guides are so impressive and unlike any other travel apps I've used before (and eventually gave up on). In fact, I've actually started using Stay to discover new places in Boston. What really makes Stay unique is that their website offers a wide variety of featured guides created by local experts like chefs, food bloggers, journalists, artists, and designers from all over the world. No matter what you're into, you can find a guide to suit tastes and hobbies while discovering hidden gems that only locals usually know about.
You can find my Boston shopping guide here and my D.C. shopping guide here.
If you use the app, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it! Let me know by contacting me here.
