Awesome! Atlas Obscura Now Has An iOS App!

Atlas ObscuraOver the years, Atlas Obscura has been a great resource for finding interesting and bizarre sites all over the world.

They claim to be “The definitive map of the world’s extraordinary sights“. I’d definitely agree!

While planning our trips, I always visit Atlas Obscura to find out what sites are in the area. I’ve come across many interesting places thanks to them.

Some sites we’ve visited due to AO:

Yesterday, I received a very exciting e-mail from Atlas Obscura. Their iOS app has arrived!

The app sounds like an easier way to search for cool and unique things to do.

Some Highlights: (from the AO e-mail)
