The Great Travel Site Showdown
As a member of the travel industry, I am constantly looking at what my peers and counterparts throughout the country are doing. And quite often, co-workers and constituents ask me who has the best website.
I have some standard answers (none of which will be divulged here), but that got me thinking…we should really have a vote to see which website would come out on top. If only we had a blog to run it on…
So, over the next several weeks, the Travel 2.0 blog will be hosting the first annual ‘Great Travel Site Showdown‘ pitting the best travel sites around the nation, plus our friends from D.C. and Puerto Rico, against each other in a winner-take all contest! (Prizes to be determined later, but pride and boasting rights are included!)
Ala March Madness, the states are pooled into groups of 4 (13 in all, randomly generated by random.org), with one winner emerging from each group. Those winners, plus the next 3 highest
second-place finishers* will move onto the quarter-finals, etc, etc. until we can declare a winner.
Voting will take place on the Travel 2.0 blog (see the top of the page) each Tuesday and Friday, with voting open for 5 days.
Voters should take into consideration the design, ease of use, available travel information and technology used in the site when making their decision. Or, if you want to suck up to your boss, just vote over and over for your state!

Good luck all!
*By only selecting 1 second place finisher we would have ended up with a mathematically challenging 14 states in the second round, and then 7 in the quarters. So, but taking the next 3 highest finishers the tourney will advance to 16, then 8, 4, etc.
