About Near

From a 7am pre-work Daybreaker dance party on the San Francisco bay to what it’s like to purchase marijuana from a medical dispensary, the short story videos are meant to be aspiring and not your typical tourist fare.

We want to take you off the beaten path to places and events you will want to experience yourself in the near future. On Near you’ll find daily curated videos, full of irresistible videos to watch. The only question you have to ask yourself is - where will you go?

Get Creative - Do These Things!

  1. Do pick a place that you love because you can’t rave about a place you’re not excited about. Near is a place to share your favorite local experiences with our community members and is enhanced when we share in a genuine way. On Near, don’t tell us, SHOW us!

  2. Do be clear and explanatory when you create a video - remember you’ve only got 10 seconds per video! The best way is to highlight what your favorite item is on the menu, the ambiance of a place, what makes it different that would make a viewer want to visit.

  3. Don’t forget to have fun and stay positive! Treat others in the community the way you would want to be treated. There are people from all walks of life on Near, and many may not share your views, but we ask that you are polite and respectful to the experience of the other users.
