Back to School, With Gowalla

August 22, 2011 1 comment

It looks like you are now able to create spots and edit currently created spots with the new “school” stamp.  With school starting or right around the corner it’s just in time (and a reminder to bring your books and an apple for the teacher).

Gowalla has also reorganized some of the spot categories.  For example the “Education” category has been replaced with a “Community” category.  The other categories, in order, are “Entertainment”, “Event”, “Food”, “Nightlife”, “Outdoors”, “Shopping”, and “Travel”.

Underwater Gowallabies

I was very excited to see this has become a featured stamp.  This is personally one of my favorite places to visit and I have highlighted this as a “best kept secret”. Nestled right in the middle of downtown Dallas, it is an aquarium, a rain-forest, and Mayan temple all teaming with indigenous life.

Brewing Gowallabies

Do you love Shiner Beer?  The folks over at Gowalla apparently do too.  The K. Spoetzl  Brewery is sporting a custom stamp!  People often say that custom and featured locations aren’t always off the beaten path.  Well this spot certainly qualifies as it is miles from any urban location.  You don’t just stumble upon the Spoetzl Brewery, it’s a destination in and of itself.

In the order listed below:  Baseball Stadium, Thai Food, Baseball Field, Vietnamese Food, Tennis Court, Local Sports, Football Field, Soccer Stadium, and School:
