Guide books are great, but travelers increasingly want to go where the locals hangout. This is what Hometown Tourist will provide. This is not about reviews; it is about contributors sharing their favorite local hot spots. It is about recommendations!
Hometown Tourist is undergoing a massive update with some fantastic changes and will relaunch January 2015 with 30 new cities. Hometown Tourist will have a completely new look, feel, and user experience. It will be mobile responsive, with downloadable pdf guides.
And, we are looking for contributors (i.e. Hometown Tourist). Hometown Tourists live in the city they write about, and only write about their favorite hot spots.
