Travel Tuesday: Flipkey Boston Virtual Walking Tour

As we plan our Northern Sonoma travel for the summer, I have been working with Flipkey on finding the perfect house rental for our wine country getaway. I don’t want to rush these next few precious months because I adore summer, but I am excited to have something fun for toward the end of the season. I have enjoyed using the Flipkey site, and through my communications with Flipkey learned of their new virtual walking tour of Boston.

The virtual tour is a fun way to plan your travel around Boston, allowing you to click on a variety of attractions to get more information as well as a street view. Places like the Boston Public Library, historic Warren Tavern, and Bunker Hill Monument are all included, making sure that tourists or residents hit as many of Boston’s hot spots as possible.

Other vacation destination tours will be rolled out soon, allowing travelers to experience a place before actually going there. As someone who loves to know what to expect, I could easily see myself utilizing these virtual tours as I plan a trip.

How do you do your travel planning? Do you do a ton of research and mapping things out, or do you wing it?

We like to do a little bit of both. Most of my research tends to be around food and wine. Smile
