Today's Reader Tip: In Airports, Use GateGuru to Find the Best Food and Shops
Today's featured tip, submitted to our Best Travel Tip Contest, comes from Jan Schroder of the Girl on the Go travel blog, in which "Travel Journalist Jan Schroder Explores the Planet, One Drink at a Time." Her advice:
"Find the best food and shopping in any airport with the amazing app GateGuru. I had a killer Reuben sandwich during a layover in Chicago, just by entering the airline code and terminal, then reading the reviews of different restaurants."
I'm a GateGuru fan too: I like knowing what's available to me pre-security vs. post-security vs. near my gate. And it's free. My only complaint? There aren't enough international airports. (I'll be able to use GateGuru on Monday during a layover at Heathrow, for instance, but not when I land in Marrakech.) Still, if you've got an iPhone or Android and you're frequently in airports, it's worth installing.
