Yes. I have been busy. 🙂 We officially relaunched Hometown Tourist last week, and we are proud of what we’ve put together.
We rebuilt our site to make it much easier to find and share city recommendations. We have created a more navigable website with additional resources, and a new visual design to support. We’ve added 20 new cities, 25 new bloggers, and our Interview with a Local travel series. Stay tuned in the coming months for new cities, new bloggers, and new travel tips as we continue to grow the site.
Hometown Tourist is unlike any current travel website that is based on reviews and stars. The site is about recommendations from locals who share their favorite restaurant, great place for an early morning stroll, or the tourist spots that are really worth visiting.
Hometown Tourist currently has recommendations from 30 destinations, like Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Bangkok; Berlin; London; Hermanus, South Africa and major U.S. locations, with more to come throughout 2015.
Travelers can browse the Hometown Tourist website and get recommendations from longtime locals and residents who know where to get the best food, listen to the hottest local bands, and where to spend a quiet evening.
The website is mobile-responsive, a key factor for those who are on the go. Hometown Tourist can be found on social networks Facebook (facebook.com/HometownTourists) and Twitter (@HTTourist). Followers of both sites can share their own experiences and information.
So…what are you waiting for? 😀 Go check it out. Let me know what you think!
