LocalEats has been named one of Babble's 2011 Top Travel Apps for Parents! Does this mean we're getting a little long in the tooth around here? Perhaps. Or maybe it's just that parents have to do more legwork when determining where to dine on vacation -- the listings on LocalEats indicate if a restaurant is kid-friendly. Anyway, rather than lecturing you whippersnappers about why LocalEats is a practical and responsible choice for finding restaurants on your newfangled smartphone, we'll just leave it to the folks at Babble:
They say that if you want to find a good meal on vacation, you should ask a local. With LocalEats, you don't need to let people know you're an out-of-town family - the app serves up locals-only dining recommendations for all 50 U.S. states directly to your iPhone (the iPad version also includes 50 international cities). You can search a listing of top destinations as voted on by the LocalEats online community or search criteria such as price, location, or menu category. Unlike other apps, however, this one is truly local: National chain restaurants are completely off its radar.
The only detail we'd add is that the LocalEats iPhone app now includes international cities as well, complete with handy travel tips (tipping etiquette, etc).
