UX Challenge: Find my way around a new town


#1

Preface

Whether your traveling or just moved to a new city, it’d be nice to have your bearings and know what opportunities there are. Pulling out maps from the rest stop are only so relevant and don’t always provide enough information, searching the web for options can be time consuming and only shows the top rated things that even most locals have never done or visited. Being new to the area I’d like to be able to find my way around, find things to do, and connect with the community.

Problem

No easy and simplified way to discover what all a city has to offer.

Challenge

Design an application (or anything, think outside the box!) that will provide an easy and simple way to discover all a city has to offer. Items to include (but not limited to) can be:

  • Restaurants
  • Shopping
  • Local Communities to get involved in
  • Events
  • Bars
  • Schools
  • Jobs
  • Transportation
  • Recreation
  • Entertainment
