About us

If you’re a bit like us, then you find there’s nothing better than feeling the sand between your toes as you relax on an abandoned beach, drifting off to sleep amongst the leaves in a treetop hotel, marveling at the colorful fishes as you snorkel along a coral reef or simply making new friends in a city you always wanted to explore.

However, each of us ran into problems.

To start with, we couldn’t find friends to join us on our adventures. Going without companions was lonely, exhausting, expensive and even dangerous. It is not as easy as just making a few calls and you have friends joining your trip - our friends and family just weren’t interested.

We turned to travel agencies but they only offered cookie-cutter vacations to well-trodden tourist hot spots we had already visited. Existing travel agencies couldn’t offer the unique experience we were looking for and our travel companions did not want to make friends. These trips were unsatisfying and boring experiences.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Maybe you just stayed home. Perhaps you went with your family on some boring resort vacation. Or, maybe, like us, you realized that your only choice was to organize everything yourself or find a group of like-minded friends.

We started creating our very own adventures over 10 years ago. We eventually found ways to connect with like-minded travelers online. What started as a simple meetup group, has blossomed into a community of more than 20,000 like-minded companions, who love adventures with friends-to-be, just like us!

On 3PlayGrounds, people like you and me get to join, create, and post adventures.
