Have you ever had to make plans to meet someone at a place that was halfway between your two locations?
If so, you might have found it a bit difficult to find an appropriate meeting place in the general vicinity of the half-way point.
Well, a fantastic website called Meetways that makes finding the most appropriate halfway meeting place between any two locations an absolute breeze.
Here’s how it works:
1 – Visit the Meetways home page.
2 – Enter your address (or simply your town or city) and the other person’s address (or town or city).
3 – If you want, you can now set a few optional parameters that can help determine the route you’ll take along with the type of establishment you wish to meet up at (hotel, restaurant, coffee shop, etc.).
4 – Click the Go button.
The site will do a quick calculation and then display either the exact address of the half-way point or the closest venue that meets any optional parameters you had set for your query.
As an example, I entered Fletcher, NC as the first location and Abingdon, VA as the second location. I then entered McDonalds as the preferred “Point of Interest”. The other options were left at their default settings.
After I clicked the Go button, I was presented with a number of choices for meeting places (all McDonalds restaurants that are located about halfway between the two locations entered into the form).
As you can see the app highlighted Johnson City, Tennessee as the half-way point and it pointed out several McDonalds Restaurants in and around Johnson City as possible meeting points.
Here’s another screenshot depicting the results of that query:
Pretty neat, huh?
Bottom line: Meetways takes the guesswork out of finding the halfway point between any two locations.
Give it a try the next time you plan to meet someone halfway. It’s sure to make choosing your meeting place a lot easier!
