Road trips have become somewhat simplified thanks to Google Maps and Map Quest, but the one thing that always irked me was how there is no way to locate and pin point attractions, stops and restaurants along the way. Thankfully, there is now an app for that! The team at TeachStreet Labs has launched a new web tool called OnTheWay. This free web based app is great for creating personalized road trips anywhere in the world.
Gas stations, grocery stores, landmarks, attractions and restaurants can all be pinned on your specific route. You can then either email the directions or print them off before your trip. Genius! It also syncs with FourSquare (an added bonus for FS addicts like myself).
My family and I are embarking on a road trip today and I was able to locate several stops along the way without having to do any online research. It is a cinch to use and cut my research time in half! If you are heading on a trip soon with the family check it out and let me know what you think.
