Scenario: Your meddling cousin Josie and her five hyperactive children are coming to visit you for the weekend. You need to give them structured activities. And these activities need to be outside your house.

May we recommend Jauntful, a new platform for making the world’s coolest city guides?

Get started by creating an account and picking a few fave places for your cousin et al to visit--say, the weirdly awesome science museum, a terrific nearby café and the no-frills local zoo where you can nuzzle baby goats. Jauntful will then put together a handy little map, replete with directions and photos (you can also upload your own pics, should you have a fabulous selfie with said baby goat).

Add notes to individual entries (“Try the bubble tea!”). Write suggested hour-by-hour itineraries. Email the whole thing off to the out-of-towner. Easy, right?

Jauntful guides are optimized for phones and tablets, but we love that they’re specifically designed to be printable--meaning they’re useful for both Luddite and tech-savvy visitors alike.

Cousin Josie stays busy. You stay sane.
