Localeur moves into Boston, Philadelphia

On the heels of more than a 1,000-percent growth in its user base since last December, Localeur announced today the additions of Boston and Philadelphia to its community of locals.

These new city launches bring the total number of cities on the platform to 18 within the United States, with plans to continue expanding in 2015.

“Boston and Philadelphia are two of the most historic and frequently visited cities in America, but there´s so much about these cities that gets missed by travel guidebooks and review sites,” said Localeur co-founder and CEO Joah Spearman. “Launching Localeur in these cities turns over a new leaf in local discovery to help travelers have more authentic experiences while also helping local businesses that can´t compete with the chains listed on most review sites.”

Localeur, which initially launched in Austin at SXSW 2013, was named the year´s best new startup by Austin Monthly later that year, and more recently has been named one of the top travel apps of 2015 by The Today Show, Forbes, TIME, The New York Times, Men´s Journal, MTV, and others.
