About Us

Cool Cousin is the easiest and funnest (it’s a word) way to find unique places you’ll love in cities around the world.

It’s pretty simple: connect with vetted locals who share your interests — aka Cousins — and get a map of their favorite city spots and insider tips for spending your time and your dime in their hometown.

With Cool Cousin, you’re just two index taps away from getting good personalized recommendations from someone you can trust. So long wasted hours navigating through too much information online. When you have a Cool Cousin, FOMO is NOMO (yes, we have copywriting skills and we’re not afraid to use them).

All you urban cats who love your city and love sharing your knowledge with others, Cool Cousin is the best possible way to rep your town. As a Cousin, you get to shout out to your favorite businesses, save thousands of poor souls from yet one more miserable tourist trap, and take part in our growing global community. Like the sound of that? Become a cousin.

Click here to download the iOS app – now live in dozens of cities around the world. If you don’t have an iPhone, we’ve got the Web App of your dreams, and we’re grinding away at the Android version, which will hopefully be ready sooooooon. Oh, and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the best local tips, quizzes and unique GIFs directly to your inbox, like a boss.

Humbly,
Cool Cousin & The Gang
