Localhood

Travel Iowa x Localhood

We're excited to announce Localhood (take a peek), a new tool that will allow you to create Instagram Reels/Facebook Stories in an easy, consistent way. The Iowa Tourism Office is covering the cost of the tool and providing access at no charge to you.

Localhood enables you to create, publish and analyze web stories, which are like social media stories for the web. This content will then automatically appear in Google searches as visual stories as well as in a Localhood gallery on Travel Iowa's homepage. The platform also allows you to embed individual stories (example) or galleries on your website and share on social media.

Ready to get started?
