Creating a Vayable Experience

You love the idea of offering an experience on Vayable but don’t know what to offer or how to offer it. We wrote this to help you craft the perfect experience to share with others.  Anyone can list an experience on Vayable, all you need is an interest or knowledge.

Step 1: Come up with an idea

You are already an expert in your own town. Think about what you enjoy doing the most or what you know the most about. Some of the most popular experiences on Vayable fall into one of the below six categories below:

  • What makes your favorite neighborhood special?
  • What are the surprising and interesting stories, people, and places?
Example: Williamsburg Past & Present (New York)
  • Are you active in the gallery scene and know of all the new art exhibitions in town?
  • Are you passionate about street art?
  • Are you a photographer or painter who wants to share your skills with others?
Example: Scout for Street Art (San Francisco)
  • Are you an amateur chef looking to cook for others or teach them how to cook local cuisine?
  • Are you a foodie who knows all the best eating and drinking spots in your city?
Example: Create a Farmer’s Market Feast (San Francisco)
  • Do you know the best trails for hiking or biking?
  • Do you love finding active ways of exploring your hometown?
  • Do you own a sailboat or motorcycle and want to take others to see something spectacular?
Example: Practice Yoga in Hyde Park (London)
  • Do you know the stories behind the people, buildings, and politics in your town?
