NEW ORLEANS, La. (April 19, 2021) - The days of endless research around the web and recommendations from friends on how to plan your perfect trip are over. Wanderly, a collection of internet-based city guides, is ready to change how we plan trips. Founded in 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wanderly is ready to step in and assist the pent-up desire to travel. The website will launch in mid-July with six full city itineraries.
“I saw that there was a gap in the market for interest and neighborhood-specific travel that’s easily accessible,” said Hunter Clark, Founder & CEO of Wanderly. “You were able to find pockets of cultural travel, but it required hours upon hours of research. What we’re offering is the kind of travel that people are looking for now. Travel that isn’t tourism. Travel that’s directly related to niche interests, and seeing cities on more of a local level.”
Guides for specific cities are broken down by interests or neighborhoods. Users can then go through and favorite their stops to create the perfect itinerary. Each guide is written by professional writers that live, work, and play in the city, making the guides authentically created by locals and not tourists passing through.
