Embrace the Romance of Valentine's Day Travel With Discounted Tourist Guides

Posted by Blake Grundman on February 14th, 2011

[img id="DK0.png"]If it hasn't been drilled into your skull by the media already, today is Valentine's Day.  That means that we are supposed to be charming, romantic, even spontaneous, in expressing our undying love and affection for whomever our significant other may be.  Yeah, it sounds like hogwash to any other self respecting human being on the planet, but it is just one of those things that you do for the women or men that you love.

One way that you could go above and beyond to impress that special someone in your life would be to take them for a night out on the town.  If this sounds like something that is more in your wheelhouse than overpriced flowers and cheesy poetry, then the developers of the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides have just the deal for you.

To ease the path of true love just a little, DK Eyewitness Travel are making their Top city apps to Paris, New York City and Barcelona apps FREE to download between February 10th-16th. Now you can whisk your loved one away and impress him or her with your breezy knowledge of the city.

The Top 10 apps let you access the very best each city has to offer with dozens of top 10 lists including jazz joints and riverfront sights in Paris, romantic settings and cabarets in New York or city views in Barcelona. Plan the ultimate romantic tour before you go using the ‘favorites’ function.

Built-in mapping allows travelers to navigate each city with ease without incurring roaming charges. And, should you ever find yourself wondering what to do next, the ‘inspire me’ feature will bring up a suggestion of somewhere to eat, drink or be entertained near to where you are.

While I am no romance expert, it seems to me like if there were such a thing as the perfect app for the tourist in all of us, we may have just found it for FREE, albeit for a very limited time.  Plus, when you consider that they are highlighting some of the most amazing cities on the globe such as Paris, Barcelona, and New York, you are now in a position to create a night that neither of you will ever forget.

Just be sure to remember which matchmaker set you in the right direction for your special night.  148Apps will always take you back.
