Because the TikTok content we’ve featured recently has been quite popular, we’ll continue to showcase creative ways our client destination marketing organizations (DMOs) use TikTok to inspire visits. This time of year brings with it weather that can be dreary — are you up for a little armchair traveling? This month's theme: “Some like it hot, while others think ice is nice.”
First, here are a few recent articles involving TikTok in case you missed them:
- TikTok and tourism: 5 reasons why your DMO should consider inching its way into TikTok
- Discover Long Island shares how TikTok can invigorate social media strategies
- Destination Q&A: how TikTok became an integral part of Discover Long Island’s social media strategy
Now, let's play the game, "Would you rather …?" Check out each of the TikToks that sit side-by-side and decide which of the two destinations you would rather visit, based on the video.
1. WOULD YOU RATHER ... take a walk by a winter waterfall or take a dip in a jungle waterfall?
Fun fact: As I write this article, it’s a balmy 79 degrees in Belize and a frigid 17 degrees in Marquette, Michigan. But don't let that influence you!
2. WOULD YOU RATHER ... have a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience by snowshoeing up Chickadee Ridge and have chickadees land on the palm of your hand or kayak in a swamp?
Fun facts: Chickadees need only 10 calories a day to survive, and the American alligator is the state reptile of Florida.
3. WOULD YOU RATHER ... have a snow day with sleds and puppies or hang with Cindy the seal?
Fun facts: For nine months, York, South Carolina, served as the US Capital (from late 1777 until mid-1778). In New South Wales, Cindy the seal does a happy dance every time she gets food.
4. WOULD YOU RATHER ... bike on ice or sink your feet into the sand?
Fun facts: Ice bikes were actually created in Buffalo, NY, in 2014. In Pensacola, the Navy's Blue Angels base at Sherman Field and have since 1955.
5. WOULD YOU RATHER ... enjoy a winter sunrise or a Mexican Caribbean sunset?
Fun facts: Brave (crazy?) Milwaukeeans have taken the "polar plunge" and run into Lake Michigan every New Year's Day for more than 100 years. And, Quintana Roo's beaches are public property, as the Mexican Constitution decrees all beaches to be publicly-accessible federal property.
That concludes our latest TikTok roundup. I don’t know about you, but I’ve just added a few new places to my travel bucket list.
