How do you stay up to date with what’s happening in your city or the cities you visit? Have you ever checked out the interesting events and guides city tourism agencies post? There’s a lot of great content being produced by official tourism agencies across the globe, and thankfully, many of them have active twitter handles to help you keep up. It turns out that following city tourism agencies on Twitter is a great way to find new things to do in your favorite cities.

We’ve compiled a handy list of all the agencies MyCityWay is currently following. We want to make this list helpful for travelers looking to get the latest information on their next destination.
