PINTEREST FOR TRAVEL - A GREAT NEW TOOL FOR YOU!

Pinterest for Travel - Fun & Easy
Pinterest is a "virtual pin board" and a fabulous tool for travelers!  If you are not familiar with Pinterest, it is like a online bulletin board where you gather and organize pictures in categories you select.

I confess, I am not a tech-wiz and yet I find Pinterest simple to use, lots of fun, and frankly - an antidote to all the text found on other types of Social Media (think twitter, facebook, etc.)  Don't get me wrong, I use other forms of Social Media and find them interesting and informative - but Pinterest is liking putting down that long novel you've been reading - and loving - and playing around with favorite photographs or magazine clippings. It is both engaging and relaxing!

For the Scarborough Inn, I created virtual pin boards about things, places, and events that Jersey Shore vacationers might find interesting.  For example, my categories include "Jersey Fresh" foods, Activities and Events in Ocean City or Cape May County, and Seashore Style (decorating & decor).  I also have general interest boards like Travel Tips and INNspirations (admirable people, quotes, and lovely places).

Recently, I read an article about how travelers could utilize Pinterest to help plan a vacation by creating your own, personalized travel guide.  Naturally, it would also be a convenient way to gather, organize, and post pictures following your vacation. As the article states, Pinterest is "...scrapbook 21st-century style!" Read the Pinterest for Travel  article for suggestions.

Take a look at the Scarborough Inn Pinterest boards and then enjoy exploring this new tool for your travel...and your life!
