New sites and businesses are constantly popping up to help make travel escapes into richer experiences. Nectar & Pulse is a “personal travel guide,” where you can choose a travel “soulmate,” whose recommendations help guide you through several choice cities. Staydu connects visitors with locals for housing, which can be paid for with help, work, or money. Atlas Obscura collects unique, wondrous and weird places to visit – Museum of the American Cocktail anyone? And Designtripper and DesignHotels.com both help the design-inclined find and book the most interesting and beautiful places to stay.
