Travelers can help other travelers get around more easily with these four crowdsourcing apps, available now.

 

Waze

Find the fastest way to and from anywhere with this community sourced traffic app, that also includes alerts for accidents, construction and other issues. Additionally, Waze helps you find the lowest priced gas. Any commuter, daily or traveler, will benefit from the app’s heads up. Waze is free on Google Play and in the App Store and Windows Phone Store.

 

GasBuddy

While traveling, this app will help you find the cheapest gas in both the United States and Canada. This is the road tripper’s very best friend. Also complimentary, the app is available on Google Play, in the App Store and for Windows and BlackBerry phones.

 

Moovit

Moovit covers more than 400 cities around the world, providing the fastest and least congested routes in real time for public transportation. It’s perfect when navigating new-to-you city transportation or when trying to get from one place to the other during rush hour, available online from the App Store, Google Play and the Windows Store.

 

Miflight

Covered before on Trazee, the app that lets other travelers find out the length of airport security lines is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to expand globally. Help out here. The app currently covers more than 50 airports. Download it for free in the App Store.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.

Hotel Chicago West Loop Becomes City’s First All Street Mural Hotel

Hotel Chicago West Loop is Chicago’s first hotel to bring street art inside, and to every guestroom. The dual-purpose property doubles as an art gallery, and launched its “Annex Murals” exhibit in 2018 with 15 hand-painted rooms boasting the work of some of Chicago’s most celebrated urban artists, including Asend, JC Rivera and Eloo. Today, all 116 rooms at the hotel have been painted with street murals, becoming some of the most distinctive lodging spaces in the city.

A Taste of Greece

Prepare your taste buds for the trip of a lifetime in Greece. About 100 Greek products — from wines, cheese and fruits to honey and oils — earned a Protected Designation of Origin from the European Union, and the country’s most beloved dishes include Greek Choriatiki salad, tzatziki, souvlaki and moussaka, with its layers of eggplant, potato, minced meat and bechamel. And those are only a few of the many highlights.
