There is something to be said for the staycation. It’s cheap, relaxing, and familiar. But that last adjective, familiar, doesn’t have to define your staycation, there are easy ways to make your choice to spend a vacation at home an exciting experience.
You can visit a part of your city you’ve never been, or scour the internet to find everyday places you didn’t even know existed. Or you can find a company that has designed fun, interactive tours, like Stray Boots.
Stray Boots, the leader in mobile-guided urban games, enables LA inhabitants and visitors alike to discover the coolest parts of the city in a fun, interactive way. The three available tours, each lasting between 2-3 hours, create a fun-filled afternoon right in your own backyard.
How does it work?
Before starting the tour, users choose what part of the city they wish to explore. The game provides users with challenges and clues that guide them to points of interest, creating an on-the-go adventure that works much like a self-guided scavenger hunt. Best of all, the game actually teaches participants about the city as they visit each spot, so they get the information of a guided tour without the boringness and limitations. What’s more, players get to participate whenever they want and at their own pace; stopping to grab a bite to eat or a drink along the way!
