As Sunshine State residents, we all know the importance of tourism. And no one knows that better than VISIT FLORIDA, the state's official tourism marketing corporation. Their latest effort to promote everything Florida has to offer is pretty cool -- the Florida Attractions Finder, which debuted today.
Here is more from the press release:
"VISIT FLORIDA today unveiled the Florida Attractions Finder, an interactive vacation planning tool that allows travelers to virtually experience their Florida thrills from a front-row seat. Point-of-view videos send users careening and diving on the newest roller coasters, zip-lining over alligators (look down if you dare), and skimming the Everglades aboard an airboat. Whether visitors are looking for a first-time Florida experience or wishing to repeat their favorite Florida vacation moment, the Florida Attractions Finder puts the power of discovery in the user’s hands."
There's also this: "The Florida Attractions Finder aggregates images of different attractions based on changes made to the dial settings. Four separate settings can be adjusted depending on the user’s vacation preferences: from thrill to chill, popular to hidden gem, high-tech to natural, and days to hours. The interface then matches the user with an attraction, which could be an internationally recognized theme park or an off-the-beaten path experience."
The Finder currently features 130 attractions, with more coming soon: "This summer, another 50 attractions will be added to the Finder and future plans will allow users to submit videos and compete for viewers’ choice awards."
The Florida Attractions Finder can be accessed here: VISITFLORIDA.com/attractionsfinder
