One thing not on break – your phone

One good thing about living in Corpus Christi is that the beach is only a short drive away. Spring break usually means the beaches will be packed with students and tourists wanting to get some sun, but not everyone is rushing to the beaches. Whereever you go, the one thing you will likely have with you is your phone. Besides having social media apps, maybe some of these apps will help for spring break and beyond.

Trip Advisor and Yelp are great apps to have when you are looking for a place to eat. They will tell you the price range, show you the menu (if available), and let you read what others say about the place. These two apps will help you a great deal if you are in a new city or if you want to try something new around town.

It doesn’t matter whether you stay in town or travel out, Roadtrippers helps you find things to do around town. All you have to do is have your location on and it will instantly provide you options on things to do like stage shows, parades, festivals, etc. It can also act like Trip Advisor and Yelp by helping your find places to eat or just have a drink.

If you are planning to fly during spring break, My TSA is the app you will need. The app provides guidelines and rules to pass through TSA checkpoints, with information such as how many ounces you can take with you on the plane. Besides the rules, it is also advised to keep track of your flight. The app will tell you if your flight is on time or if it’s delayed because of weather or other issues and it will give you an estimated time on that flight arriving to the airport.

Weather is unpredictable anywhere you go, so having either the Weather Channel app or Accuweather on your phone will help make your plans easier, especially if you are planning to travel to another city or plan to try to get a tan at the beach.

Being prepared always helps and makes traveling easier if you have the right apps. All these apps are available on the Apple Store, Google Play and the Android Store. You can also see what other apps they suggest to help you out for spring break.
