Bus, plane or train. Many of you will be traveling come the end of November, headed halfway across the country to spend Thanksgiving with loved ones. It’s a long weekend but a short holiday, which makes Thanksgiving the busiest travel holiday of the year. Stay safe, and sane, with a few Android apps designed to help navigate your surroundings and plan for your trip. From flight tracking to last-minute hotel deals, road trip aids and cheap gas finders, your Android device is equipped to make this the easiest holiday of the year.
AllTrails – Hiking & Biking (Free)
Even when traveling, I look for the nearest gym. Thanksgiving is particularly pertinent, with all that sleep-inducing turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and sweet potato souffle. It’s enough to make anyone skip a workout or three, but the holiday season doesn’t have to start that way. Curb holiday pounds with AllTrails, an app that can help you find local trails for hiking, biking, jogging and more. Browse over 40k trail guides for outdoor activities, which means you can stay active wherever you go. Trail reviews, top maps and routes and photos are included, and trails can also be downloaded for offline use. Even if you only make it out for a post-turkey constitutional, your body (and belly) will thank you later.
