In my life, I have made several major moves: Central Florida, Charleston, SC, and now moved out to LA. In the past, for me anyway, it has been a little difficult to fine new activities, types of food, even where to find new groups of friends that share the same interests. Since the dawn of the “age of the mobile app”, this has been one of the easiest times in life to find exactly what you want and try new things.
I highly recommend mobile applications like Groupon and LivingSocial. I have been using Groupon to find foods and activities I would have not even thought about unless I passed right by them or someone recommended it to me. And even then its kind of a crap shoot as to when I would have got there.
Since I have moved to LA in March, I have bought the following:
White Water Rafting
Korean BBQ and Peruvian food,
Comedy Club tickets and wine tastings.
I will admit, I have not bought much on LivingSocial, there is not much that has appealed to me, but I am excited about their escapes. LivingSocial offers vacation escapes from one nighters, to multiple night packages all over the US and Latin America. Gotta save those pennies.
So if you are looking to move or go on vacation, these are two applications that are a must have to make your new experiences varied and exciting!
