Review of Goby.com (and a chance to win $50!)2:24 PM
Have you ever had those days when you've wanted to get out with your kids, but you're tired of seeing the same sites... attending the same events.. and you want something new! There is now a really cool search engine that provides families with appropriate events and activities they can enjoy, and it's super simple to use.
Goby.com allows you to create your own adventure. Just type in what kind of activity you'd like to do , where you'd like to do it, and when you'd like it to happen! We typed in "movies" "Omaha, ne" and "tonight" and got a list of ideas that we expected (like the theater we often visit), as well as some new ideas we hadn't thought of (like the local water park and a new museum!)
Families looking for an escape from the ordinary will enjoy this new search tool. By just filling in two of the three search fields, you can gain access to fun ideas, interactive maps, and photos from sites like Google and Flickr!
We really enjoyed using this search tool as a means of finding a different kind of activity for our family. Sometimes, you just need a little inspiration (or like us, you don't keep up well on new venues that have opened in your area.) This search tool is definitely a way to escape from the ordinary and the perfect place to discover something new!
Wanna Win? We have one $50 American Express Gift card to give a lucky family so that they can use the search tool and have a day out -- for fun! To be entered to win, just visit Goby.com and leave a comment on my blog post with what type of adventure you were looking for -- as well as what you found! You have until February 10th at 11:59 pm CST to get your entries in, and you can enter every day! (Just comment as directed for your first entry, and for each entry after that, type "Today's Entry!")
