Oftentimes when we travel, we miss opportunities to see the city while still being able to burn off a few extra calories.
Instead of paying an arm and a leg to ride a crowded and sticky double decker bus that keeps you sedentary for hours on end, think about downloading FREE walking tours for your iPod (or any mp3 player). They're great options for anyone who likes to learn about a new place but doesn't like to sign up for the full tour. Here are my picks:
- PodGuides.net is a great site that offers a few walking tours of fabulous places like the opal coast of France to the Saint Louis Science Center. The cool thing about PodGuides is that it is a combination of a map of a certain place with numbered dots on it and a series of audio tracks which you can download for your iPod. It's a great way to turn on your iPod and get moving, all while seeing some beautiful sights and burning off a few extra calories too.
- JourneyPod.com is another option for walking around with your iPod on in a new place. JourneyPod takes you through more trendier spots in CA, NY and CT, giving you the scoop on what's what and where.
