TripShaker – Plan Your Escape

TripShaker is a web-based application that people can use to plan and organize their vacations. Users enter the names of the cities they want to visit and select a category of attractions they’re interested in seeing. TripShaker then does all the work finding suitable sightseeing excursions and other places worth checking out along the way.

Enter the starting point of your upcoming trip, along with any major cities where you’re planning on stopping along your route. Unlike other trip planning apps, TripShaker lets you add multiple cities to your roadtrip. Tell TripShaker how you’re getting around (car, bike, or public transportation), and which types of activities you’re most interested in. TripShaker provides you with a number of options to choose from, including Nature, Museums, Health, Architecture, and Beach. Once you click submit, TripShaker will provide you with a route map that includes links to all the best sights to see along the way.

Click on the heart alongside any sightseeing marker on your TripShaker map to add that marker to your list of favorites, or click the Wiki link to find out more about what you can expect from that specific activity or excursion. The trips you plan with TripShaker can easily be shared with friends via social media or email, making it possible to turn basic roadtrip planning into a collaborative effort.
