Google-owned Niantic Labs has released an application called Field Trip that should be able to help you find new spots and places of interest near by. We as humans tend to get stuck in habits, but Field Trip seems like a nice way to break that repetition and find something new and exciting. The application runs in the background of your device, and when you’re walking around and doing your thing, the phone alerts you that there’s something close by that you should check out. 

In the beginning, you give the application details on things you already like which helps it make educated decisions on things it will show you. New restaurants, museums  and things of that nature are all a part of places you can discover whether you’re by yourself or with a group of friends. I tried it myself, but of course, I live in a suburb area of Portland and the app thinks there’s nothing cool by me, which is the truth.

Try it yourself and let us know how you like it.
