The astronomical summer season begins June 20. That’s 130-some-odd days away, which means you still have plenty of time to plan your warm weather getaways and be inspired as to the location of where those warm weather getaways should take place by watching a few or more travel-oriented videos on YouTube.
YouTube Vacationer is an online channel and destination for “travel videos from folks like National Geographic, LonelyPlanet and the TravelChannel” (as well as a few independent content creators) meant to provide you with some good initial answers to the question, “Where should I go on vacay?”
Snippets from shows staring recognizable cable channel faces like Andrew Zimmern and Guy Fieri, made-for-the-internet clips showcasing lesser-known tourist destinations, and more generic “This is What This Place is All About“ videos are placed on a Google map according to their geographic location to make your video viewing experience and the planning of your upcoming vay-or-stay-cation more easily navigable.
The whole endeavor is sponsored by Alamo Rent a Car, which is hoping the title sponsorship of a dedicated YouTube channel about vacation will help drive signups for its Alamo Insiders rewards program.
