About Placely


We are bringing more signal to geolocation

Welcome to Placely! We are bringing more signal to geolocation by crowdsourcing valuable information about places.

We’re a startup focused on community-powered tips for local residents, home buyers and visitors who want to discover the best things to do and see from locals who know their towns and cities best.

Placely takes the worry out of planning detailed itineraries in advance. Using a smartphone or tablet, you can get a feel for interesting nearby destinations when you’re already out and about. Through GPS, Placely points you to nearby options and displays images or videos along with short text, video or audio descriptions from community members and past visitors.

The emphasis is on tips from knowledgeable locals, combined with experiences by friends in your networks, rather than reviews from random strangers or far-away experts. By encouraging people to document and curate meaningful places – getaways, rafting spots, hiking trails, offbeat stores, that special place where you fell in love – Placely helps to elevate the good stuff around us.

Come join our community and help us build a knowledge base centered on neighborhoods!
