Want to know where the state's hot spots are to visit? Check out a new feature of the tourism department and get a virtual answer - from a squirrel.

The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) has launched its MassFinds blog at www.massvacation.com, featuring favorites and hidden gems of the state - as narrated by the state's tourism department's mascot, MOTT the squirrel. The new feature is hot on the heels of the department's announcing that its "Ask a Local" iPhone app is now available on iTunes, a free, on-the-move guide providing info on local tips and deals from hotels, restaurants and other things in the state.

All of it, says Betsy Wall, executive director for the office of tourism, "allows visitors to have Massachusetts right at their fingertips and the MassFinds blog complements our social presence." With the help of a friendly squirrel. No word yet on if Boris or Natasha will be involved.
