Makeover shows are all the rage. Make over your home, your wardrobe, your hair, your life. Well, websites need makeovers too, and it’s about time TLT freshened up!
The old site was basically a tear-down with really ugly curtains, olive green appliances that a Maytag repairman couldn’t fix, yellowed floral wallpaper, and a front porch unfit for a swing. OK, so maybe it wasn’t that bad, but it was cluttered and definitely needed some sprucing up, so about 6 weeks ago I put on my overalls and grabbed a sledgehammer. And now….
(drum roll please) Ta Da!!
Welcome to the all new The Local Tourist! Besides being cleaner and brighter, the new TLT has some really cool new features:
