Credentialed manager David Frasher served as a city administrator and manager of several communities across America. In addition to travel to serve various cities, David Frasher frequently travels for leisure. Here are some travel apps that help tourists travel like locals:

Airbnb – This app connects tourists with locals by providing the former with home listings in each city. Instead of staying in hotels, tourists can enjoy the company and hospitality of local homeowners.

Eatwith – Having authentic, home-cooked meals in a new city gives tourists a taste of local culture. With Eatwith, travelers can look for hosts willing to cook popular dishes for them, for a fee.

Party with a Local – Through this app, travelers connect with locals who are willing to join them for a glass of wine, or a night at the club.

Vayable – Locals serve as vacation architects in the app, Vayable. They create and curate ideal vacation ideas for travelers, who wish to experience a city or culture the way locals do.
