DULUTH, MN– Dating apps are all the rage right now. But a new relationship app is putting a twist to swiping left or right by promoting dating experiences instead.
We’re all familiar with popular dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge, but a new app called “Let’s Go” just rolled out and it has its eyes set on Duluth.
“We actually don’t even use the word dating app, it’s more like a date night experience app,” said Austin Bohlig, Let’s Go, Founder and CEO.
The priority of this date night experience app has shifted from singles to couples.
“Whether you’re my age, my parent’s age, or even my grandparent’s ages you’re always probably dating and looking for fun new things to do,” said Bohlig.
Bohlig said Let’s Go partners with businesses in your area, so once you’ve downloaded the app, you unlock deals and discounts for spending quality time at those places.
“One thing that we do like to do is we like to try and find places, where you wouldn’t think, would maybe be a good date night,” he said
When the free app launched in the Twin Cities last year, app-owners focused on one-night experiences, but now that it’s here in Duluth, weekend experiences are desired.
“We’ve partnered with Beacon Point and other types of resorts like that all throughout the Northshore including Two Harbors and Lutsen. Kind of hoping that not only will we help you find a place to stay, but also once you come here, we can help find fun places to go,” said Bohlig.
If you’re single, don’t worry, you can get in on the fun, too. All you have to do is pick a day and an activity.
“You’ll be put into a pool of singles that want to do the same thing. Then, you can match, message and you can also have access to our exclusive date night promotions,” said Bohlig.
Even after you meet a person, you can still use the app to find fun, new experiences
The app has already stolen hearts in Duluth, the Twin Cities, East Metro, and Central Minnesota. The next stop on the love train is Southern Minnesota.
Bohlig said businesses in the Duluth or Northshore area can promote on the app for free.
