Did You GoSeeOregon?
Did you GoSeeOregon yet? As we told you six weeks ago, Travel Oregon is supporting a one-of-a-kind project that adds “social networking” to the Oregon tourism experience. The website, GoSeeOregon.com, was built by Oregon-based GoSeeTell Network Inc. and allows travelers to share information, tips and recommendations about places to go and things to do across the state.
Of course you might ask why there is a need for another travel website about Oregon. The answer to this is very simple: GoSeeOregon.com is not about Oregon – it is about the people who travel in Oregon.
It is about the hikers, bikers, rafters, skiers, honeymooners, wine-tasters, beachcombers, Paulina-plunge-takers, fly-fisher(wo)men, theater-lovers, sand-boarders, beer-drinkers, campers, horseback-riders, rock-climbers, berry-pickers and all the others travel in Oregon to have a good time.
In a nutshell: GoSeeOregon.com is a website about you and we want to hear from you. We want to know where you like to go and what you like to do. What are your favorite restaurants, B&Bs, attractions and activities?
Share and you will be rewarded!
GoSeeOregon has a personalized recommendation tool: just enter your interests into your user profile and start rating the places you know. As the site gets to know you and your travel preferences, you will be presented with suggestion for other places you might like. These recommendations are based on the input from other likeminded users.
So even if you think you have been there and done it all – you might be surprised. With GoSeeOregon you will find new places that you should like.
Just look for the places that are listed under “Things you might like” for each city.
And the more you share your thoughts on all these great places in Oregon, the better the accuracy of your personalized recommendations gets. How is that for a reward?
Finally, we’re totally flabbergasted by the overwhelming feedback and reviews we’ve received from many of you…here is a sampling of what people are saying about GoSeeOregon.com….
