Promoting Restaurants Provides Hospitality To Tourists

Posted on July 30, 2009

Some people have the opportunity to travel often. Whether on official business trips or traveling for fun, these folks can tell you all the best places to eat, sleep and visit in cities across America. I personally think these are the best friends to have. They give me the heads up on all of the best restaurants in my future travel endeavors.

But what if you don’t have a friend who has been to Philadelphia and you get a hankering for Greek food while you are there? Where can you find the best places to satisfy your cravings? Look no further than MenuPages.

Here, you can find restaurants categorized by area, part of town, customer ratings and price range. Menus are also available via on-screen html and downloadable PDFs. The cities featured on MenuPages are New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Washington and South Florida.

This is an excellent example of bringing relevant content to your destination’s future tourists. While a site like this looks like a lot of work, it’s a simple concept. Restaurants will love the publicity, and providing a link for restaurants from your CVB or tourism bureau Web site will provide travelers with valuable information for their trip. Maximizing each page on your Web site should be part of your tourism marketing plan to increase traffic not only to your page, but ultimately, your destination.
