I’m ready to make a confession. Please don’t judge me. I live in Los Angeles, one of the most amazing cities in the world. Instead of getting out there and exploring it, I’ve become somewhat of a hermit crab. I think there are tourists out there who’ve seen more of this city than I have. Ugh, no true Angeleno would be proud to admit that. That’s why I jumped at the chance to write this sponsored post in collaboration with the new Jagger app. I knew it was time to venture out of my apartment and reignite my love affair with the City of Angels. And this app is perfect for that!
I think I sometimes get so bombarded with my work, that I forget how amazing my city is. I live in the middle of L.A. and the minute I logged onto Jagger I was reminded of how many things there are to do here.
This app has over 2000+ activities in each major metropolitan city to choose from. I doubt the words “I’m bored” will come out of my mouth again. It was originally launched in only 5 locations of Los Angeles and Orange County. Then it grew to over 28 neighborhoods. Now it also offers activities in San Diego and San Francisco. Great for those weekend road trips! Sorry, it’s only available in California right now. It’s great for travelers who are visiting these areas too, especially if you want to check out places the locals visit.
I tried my hand at the free app, signed up through my Facebook account, selected my interests (like shopping), and filled out my profile—pretty simple. Then I started my search for something to do on a Sunday morning. Boom! The Farmer’s Market came up. It’s right around the corner from my house and the perfect place to eat, shop, and people watch. I was worried that it would be a little touristy, but it wasn’t.
As you can see below, the app is pretty easy to use and all the details for each activity are provided for you. I loved that the website to each activity is just a tap away, along with being able to call them if I need to. And yes, I submitted a photo of my breakfast. I’m waiting to see if it get’s approved (crossing fingers).
I think what interests me the most about the Jagger app is the fact that the more I use it, the more personalized the recommendations become. Kind of like Pandora for activities. And any time I’m in a certain location, the app will intelligently pull a list of activities that it thinks I would like. Not too shabby. Since, I don’t want to be bothered with activities that I won’t go to anyways.
I love that my phone not only keeps me connected to my friends, family, and social media. But it can also get me up, out, and doing fun and exciting activities in this city that I love.
