It’s always good to find travel and tourism organizations that understand Web 2.0/social media (aka “blogs and stuff.”) Travel bureaus that make an effort to get out and be, well, sociable online are going to attract more people to their destination; isn’t that kinda their reason for existence?
One of the best examples of a lively tourism staff that really loves their city is the gang in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; as I wrote over on my Family Travel Logue, they are definitely tourism experts who understand the Web.
While cruising around their main Web site and their UWishUNu blog, I found a fun video featuring “Joe Sixpack, Beer Reporter” who gives a rundown of brewpubs and taverns in one section of Philly.
(For our RSS and newsletter readers who can’t see the video embed box, here’s the URL link to the Philadelphia beer tour.)
