(PRWEB) July 01, 2014
FlipKey, a leading vacation rental marketplace, today launched a virtual travel guide of Boston, which is the first in a series of guides that the company will roll out. As the company was founded and is based in Boston, this destination was a natural fit as the first location for this travel guide series.
“Our goal was to create a unique experience for our travelers by giving them an on-the-ground feel for a destination before they visit in order to better assist them in planning their vacations,” said Tess Morton, a FlipKey spokesperson. “Our guide was created using Google Street Views and each location on the map was hand-picked by our travel experts based on appeal and/or historical significance.”
The virtual walking tour of Boston allows travelers to explore 10 different areas in the city by clicking on each landmark located on a map within the guide. Some of the landmarks include the Bunker Hill Monument, Boston Public Library, the USS Constitution and Faneuil Hall.
With more than 300,000 vacation rental listings in 179 countries worldwide, this travel guide series will further help travelers plan the best vacation based on their preferences. FlipKey currently has more than 180 listings in the Boston area including traditional vacation rentals, apartments and even houseboats located on Boston Harbor.
