WASHINGTON — The Travel Industry Association has launched a new website called DiscoverAmerica.com, a one-stop site with content on all 50 states, dozens of cities, the five U.S. territories and a community section where travelers can post messages.
The content is primarily geared to international travelers and is available in five languages — English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese. But browsing through the site provides plenty of inspiration, even for those of us who are already on U.S. soil.
The site can help you book hotels, find deals and activities and learn about places with a clickable map. You’ll get a quick overview of each destination’s geography, history and top attractions, with ideas for trips. In Idaho, for example, the site mentions Lewis and Clark sites, Sun Valley, the Shakespeare Festival in Boise, the Oregon Trail, tribal culture, whitewater rafting, and state parks like Bruneau Dunes and Castle Rocks, among other activities and destinations.
