Social Networking for Wilderness Areas, Parks, Monuments and Outdoors Recreation are hit or miss on the internet.
Most travel websites are focused on the large metro areas in the United States. One website has a different twist and has just launched an new feature for making rural adventure travel a little easier. It partners with small business owners in these rural areas. There are thousands of small business owners located near wilderness areas. Many of them don't have websites or are sometimes hard to find in a search engine. By adding them into a database focused on rural America, that helps travelers find their products and services.
It's unique to have posts from all the National Parks, State Parks, National Monuments and Wilderness Areas in one place, and this allows adventure travelers to plan out all their places to stay and fun things to do all in one action! No more clicking and searching all around. All selected travel partners with available products and services get notified of the travelers interest.
The Outdoor Adventure Message Board at AdventureZoneTOURS.com opens up to a listing of U.S. States separated into state travel region message boards where people can see the outdoor
areas available with map, information, stories and photos with over 4,000 posts. There are links to park maps, webcams, get directions and a search box to locate accommodations and activity providers in that region.
Travel partners are needed now, to compliment the rural reservations booking engine that has just been launched. Accommodations and Activities suppliers need only to visit and click on the link at the top that says Travel Partners. From there they can offer allotments of their products. The suppliers control dates, inventory, and prices, the system is set up to easily cut and paste existing promotional materials for display on the website. The website processes a $5.00 reservation fee by paypal for the reservation request and then the deposit, cancellation and collection of payment takes place directly between the customer and the supplier. AdventurezoneTOURS is simply the intermediary to assist the traveler and supplier in creating an incredible adventure opportunity in rural America.
The categories where suppliers are needed are:
Bed & Breakfast
ATV rentals and tours
Men Get Aways
Women Get Aways
Theatre - Fairs - Festivals
In a recent trend, volunteering has become very popular with more people willing to offer their time or vacation in assisting the parks and outdoor organizations with clean up, rebuilding trails and other important tasks. AdventureZoneTOURS.com not only features a message board for each region of every state but under
the category Special Interests, users are invited to post messages for volunteer opportunities or find links to the volunteer opportunity just right for them.
