Urban explorers and ambling metropolis lovers looking for a more efficient way to traverse cities can use the Pretty Streets app to find the most beautiful walking routes that their city has to offer. The app uses a combination of crowdsourcing and mapping technology to give its users walking routes that don't necessarily take the fastest route, but take the most beautiful one.
Currently available in 68 cities across Europe and North America, the Pretty Streets app is a boon for travelers who don't want to walk along ugly side streets simply because their route-making application included it in the quickest line from A to B. But the prettiness isn't based on an algorithm, so, even for native inhabitants, Pretty Streets' community contributions give the potential for new discoveries.
