While the Airbnb brand might be most well-known for its lodging recommendations that allow consumers to stay in the homes of locales, the service is expanding to provide a much more all-inclusive local traveling experience by adding features to its mobile platform that also provide dining and attraction recommendations called Guidebooks. This allows consumers travelling to new and familiar locations to experience the places as if they were locals with unlikely recommendations to hot spots frequented by people that live in the area.

Guidebooks will allow consumers staying at Airbnb locations to access data collected from local hosts on their favorite bars, restaurants and attractions to visit. The newly added features will facilitate consumers having a much more authentic travel experience that is off the beaten path -- rather than a conventional, touristy one.
