Foursquare is now a social media partner with USA TODAY. This USA TODAY report suggests that the excitement surrounding the new partnership is the result of the 250 tips from USA TODAY travel experts loaded into the population location-based social network.
The travel advice comes from the publication’s “10 Great Places” feature, which relies on information from local experts, authors and celebrities to provide the inside scoop on top destinations.
Visitors to the San Francisco area are advised to check out the Castro Theater and its sing-along nights. Gamblers in Las Vegas are informed that the showgirl statues at the Riviera Hotel & Casino have been known to bring luck. Those travelers seeking peace and quiet may prefer the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., or the orchid conservatory in Atlanta's Botanical Garden.
"USA TODAY has always been a traveler's companion, so Foursquare is an obvious fit for us. We believe these tips from USA TODAY's signature Travel feature will help Foursquare users find undiscovered points of interest in their local area and quality attractions as they travel," said Victoria Borton, general manager of USA TODAY Travel, in the USA TODAY piece.
Interested parties can follow USA TODAY on Foursquare and be among the first to hear about the latest travel discoveries in cities and towns across the nation.
Jonathan Crowley, director of Business Development for Foursquare, noted that with the wealth of information captured by USA TODAY, the content now available on the Foursquare platform all over the world will enable users to discover exciting new places and tidbits of information wherever their travels happen to take them.

In October, Foursquare announced that the International Space Station has now become a Foursquare venue. NASA now has a customized section of the Foursquare website, where the space agency will provide official tips and information about the U.S. space program in locations throughout the country (now Foursquare “venues”).
