Keep Your Business Travels “Real” By Experiencing Local Flavor

by AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing

Last week, we began a 10 part series featuring one travel tip and one smartphone/tablet app each week – our topics are meant to benefit all business travelers.

Travel Tip of the Week – #2

Stay with Real People. Your travel experience will be that much better if instead of staying in a hotel, you find a family to stay with using home-stay networks. This way you will feel more at home and will be able to build lasting relationships in the cities where you travel. Whenever you need to travel there again, you will know people in the city and won’t feel so alone. (Of course, if you don’t know anyone in the city, opt to stay in a cozy corporate rental in a fun and exciting neighborhood. You’ll be sure to make lasting friendships in no time!)

Smartphone App of the Week

Our featured smartphone/tablet app of the week is called Foodspotting. This application lets you search for nearby restaurants, share photos of dishes that you absolutely love, follow foodie experts, or find what you are craving nearby. By using Scoutmob (an app feature), you may also be able to find only locally-owned and operated restaurants so you are sure to experience the local flavor. To find out more information about Foodspotting or to download this remarkable app, check out
