Share your DC… invite more tourists!

The Washington, DC Convention and Tourism Corporation has launched ShareYourDC as part of a larger research project to figure out how best to promote DC as a travel and convention destination. While I doubt that those of us who don’t own lunch counters and street kiosks would say that we feel an acute need for more tourists, it’s very true that tourism and convention business is a huge chunk of the DC area’s economy. I am also very in favor of any initiative that would lead to an influx of tourists who understand that there is more to see here than things made of marble.

So go to ShareYourDC, answer the surveys, and share your photos of your favorite things about DC. (I’d rather have an upload form than have to email my photos, though, guys. How about a Flickr group? Join the 21st century… the water’s great.)

    The site is nice. It just wants to be “web 2.0” but definitely lacks the Flickr upload idea which should be an industry standard by now. Other than that, the site is well done and it’s certainly a good idea for tourism.
