Pennsylvania tourism enlists travel bloggers

Though blogs have long been a popular way for independent travelers to showcase their adventures online, it seems as if the travel-blogging concept has caught the attention of the travel and tourism industry as well. According to a recent CNN story, Pennsylvania’s state tourism office has elected to promote its destinations by hosting a series of in-state travel blogs at The featured bloggers are six “real people” who’ve been traveling across the state visiting Civil War battlefields and theme parks, attending NASCAR races, motorcycling and mountain biking across rural regions, and checking out urban nightlife. An added perk for these bloggers is that the Pennsylvania state tourism office is footing the travel bill.

The bloggers started posting on June 1st, and their online journals can be found here.
