Touristlink.com a social marketplace connecting travelers to small local travel providers announces the launch of new content highlighting Americas National Park system. Visitors to the site can find a host of pictures and maps that help them discover the most interesting attractions in each park. The content is organized so that it’s easy to find anything whether it is all the hot springs in Yellowstone or hiking trails in Yosemite. Touristlink makes it it easy to discover new places, meet the locals and plan the route for your next trip.
Visitors to the site can bookmark and create custom lists of their favorite attractions. For instance, a visitor interested in Grand Canyon view points can easily make a custom list of those and then share it. Lists are easily condensed and can be printed in a one page format alongside a Google map to take with you on your next journey. This feature is already popular on the site and visitors are using it to print out lists of attractions in different cities and countries.
Touristlink delivers content in a manner that lets travelers easily find information about a particular place and at the same time find the nearby locals who can help them plan a trip. In addition to seeing the tour guides and travel agents visitors can also see other members who want to visit or who already have. Touristlink founder David Urmann commented “One of the goals is making travel content more social by contextually relating places with people. This makes it easy to find other travellers as well as small travel providers who are relevant and can maybe help you answer questions or plan your trip...It gets very in-depth for each park and we think that visitors will have fun time using it as a discovery tool.”
