The San Francisco Travel Association has re-launched its web site – http://www.sanfrancisco.travel – after a complete redesign that provides a wealth of information for visitors, meeting planners, travel professionals, media and San Francisco Travel partners.
The site uses a responsive design to adapt to any screen size, from laptop to tablet to smartphone. No matter the size of the screen, the user has access to the complete web site and its functions with scrolling and swiping functionality.
Two types of map technology are utilized to help with orientation and navigation. Mapbox provides functionality on the “Explore” pages, allowing visitors to see places nearby their selected hotel, restaurant, shop or activity. Google Maps are used in other parts of the site to provide directions, alternate routes and real time traffic.
Content is refreshed regularly. and culture content is curated and provided by SFArts.org and other contributors include The Bold Italic, Gay Cities, Pamela Busch and the tablehopper. Special event listings are curated by SpinGo, a new events platform with an office based in San Francisco.
Through a partnership with Booking.com, lodging reservations can be made from the home page and throughout the site and San Francisco hotel deals are easy to find. Attractions and event tickets can be booked on the site as well.
