MapQuest Launches Local Portal

MapQuest today added a local portal to its popular mapping website. Found at or by clicking on the local icon on the front page, the new local site shows news, weather, dining, movies, and more for your location.

The features are displayed in modules, which can be dragged and dropped where you would like to put them. To remove a module altogether, simply click the “Customize” button near the top and uncheck the box of the module you’re not interested in.

Each module can be individually refreshed for the latest information, or you can click the “Refresh Page” button, which is next to the Customize button near the top of the page.

Recently, MapQuest tapped Citysearch for comprehensive local search results.
