How do I include suburbs of a city?

How do I include suburbs of a city?

I'm listing places that are just outside of my city, as it's all part of the greater metro area. How can I do this without hiding the places listed in the suburbs when you look at the overall city list?

Specifics: I'm writing about Washington DC, but there are many suburbs included in this in two different states. When I add them as a listing, I add the separate city so the map (and the tourist) will have the correct location. But when I do this, the only way to access the listing is via the map, and it doesn't show up in the list page since it's a different city and state. How do I get these places included as part of the same destination rather than their own, unfamiliarly-named destinations?

Hi Megan,

These listings will automatically appear under "Chevy Chase" and under "Maryland": http://www.guidegecko.com/maryland/restaurants/p,123711,60. If you want to refer to them under Washington, it is perfectly fine to add a link in the Restaurants & Eating description. You can for example write "Some recommended restaurants are located in Maryland, just a few minutes away from xxx.", and then link the word "Maryland" to the URL above.

There is currently no way to have them directly on the Washington DC map.

Best,
Daniel

Okay, I've added the suburb, but so does that mean users can only access it from the Washington DC page if I add the link "go here out of town"? Is there any way to have it show up on the DC map? These places aren't really considered "out of town" because they're literally about 20 meters away from the district line.

Here's an example of the new district http://www.guidegecko.com/chevy-chase/chinese-restaurants/p-f-changs/p,608186945

Hi,

If the suburb does exist in our database (just search for it), then please add the listings directly under the existing city/suburb. You can then place a link in the section article, e.g. "For some great restaurants a little out of town, go to xxx".

If the suburb does NOT yet exist, you can add it as a district. Do to this, click on "Add Something" and then "add a district" on top of the form. Make sure your spelling is correct, this cannot be undone or changed.

Hope that helps. If you post the URL here (or the suburb names if you cannot find them), we can have a look.

Best,
Daniel
