There’s a new way for families and visitors to enjoy a socially-distanced winter holiday season. Take a self-guided tour of the most-festive homes in Long Island! View cheery front yards...including sparkling lights, shimmering trees, animated musical shows, and ringing sleigh bells—sure to delight everyone!
This new no-contact approach to tour-taking, with a Christmas-in-Long Island twist, comes at a time when 2020 has challenged people to rethink holidays, recreation, tourism and so many other aspects of daily life.
An app for your smartphone, Built Story allows locals everywhere to open a map, and immediately find self-guided tours in their area. Built Story allows creators such as local bloggers, parents, storytellers, history buffs, tour guides, and so many others to share their knowledge of history, holiday cheer, family activities, architecture, and more by creating tours from the comfort of their homes. Once created, the tours are available 24/7 on the Built Story marketplace, where Tour Takers can access them via the Built Story app, available on iOS and Android.
Normally $10 per self-guided tour, BabylonMoms.com Long Island Holiday Lights Tour will be free to new users for a limited time. Whether free or $10, users have access to the tour for a full 30 days and can start, stop, pause and retake the tour as many times as they like in that window.
Built Story and Babylon Moms together offer a fun new way to experience the holidays, Babylon, and local attractions!
