Las Vegas’ newest travel app, WhereToVegas, provides visitors with a social heat map of trending locations and events in the destination. WhereToVegas helps visitors maximize their Vegas vacation experience by informing them of the ‘hot spots’ in town during their stay. Hot Spots are determined by the most active conversations happening at that specific time; the more people talking about a certain Las Vegas experience, the higher in rank it becomes on the app’s home screen.
Featuring a detailed map of Las Vegas attractions as well as real-time social media conversations via Twitter and Instagram, WhereToVegas details the excitement and energy of Las Vegas nightlife, entertainment, dining experiences and more.
“We’re always looking at new ways to engage our visitors,” said Cathy Tull senior vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “Whether you’re looking for a restaurant, show, nightclub or special event, the WhereToVegas app makes it easy to find the most talked about locations, engage with others over specific experiences or plan your next adventure.”
By sharing real-time social posts on Twitter and Instagram, visitors can use WhereToVegas like a compass to determine their Las Vegas experience. The app will pinpoint exciting and popular locations within Las Vegas; highlighting experiences for all tastes and interests. In addition, visitors can share images on Instagram and tweet their own Las Vegas experiences to potentially be featured on the app.
