Detour


I love the idea of being a tourist in the city you live in, and Detour is the perfect app for doing just that! Detour has a series of audio walks that allow you to plug in your earbuds and explore hidden stories, people, and interesting places around town all at your own pace.

Although most of the Detours are in San Francisco (which is awesome if you plan to visit!), they've recently launched a series in Austin and will be expanding to other cities soon. A new Detour launches on the third Thursday of every month, and I'm looking forward to trying out this one tomorrow:


"Before the streets of Austin were lit with electric lights, they were electrified by something else: news of the Servant Girl Annihilator—perhaps America's first serial killer. The case unfolded over the course of a single year, a year that changed Austin forever. You'll see traces of that pivotal year everywhere, and along the way you'll encounter stolen hats, secret labyrinths, and one of the best views in town (at one of the most unlikely locations)." -Detour.com
