TravelStorys is an intelligent travel platform connecting people to place by ear. In 2012 Story Clark, a renowned land conservationist, founded TravelStorys as a tool to showcase the value of open spaces so that we might preserve those places for future generations. The scope of Travelstorys has expanded to include historic locations, scenic byways, river walks, paddling tours and many more. As the app grows, the stories evolve, but the heart of the app remains the same. No matter the location, TravelStorys connects people with the places that sustain us all. Because if people connect, they might care. If they care, they might act.
