Field Trip App Lets You Discover New Stuff in Old Neighborhoods

by Hazel Chua

For kids, field trips are one of the biggest highlights in school. They offer a temporary escape from the dreary confines of the classroom once every few months (or weeks, if they’re lucky.)

Just because you’re all grown up now doesn’t mean you can’t go on field trips anymore.

Field Trip

You might not be in school anymore, but if you’ve got a smartphone, then a whole new world of possibilities and new discoveries is open to you, right here, right now. Just download the Field Trip app and you’re good to go. It’s an interactive app by Google internal startup NianticLab that shows you cool, unusual, and sometimes historically-rich stuff that can be found around your neighborhood, or wherever you happen to be at the moment.


The app can be customized based on your personal interests, and gathers data from a variety of data sources, including Arcadia, Historvius, TimeOut, Thrillist, Food Network, Zagat, Eater, Atlas Obscura, Dezeen, Daily Secret, Cool Hunting, Freshome, Inhabitat, Songkick and more. It can also be set to automatically notify you when there’s something interesting nearby.

If you’re traveling somewhere, just fire up and the app and get ready to take yourself (and whoever else is with you) on a field trip.

You can download the Field Trip app at Google Play and the iTunes store.
