Our friends over at the Carrollton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau worked very hard on their free Visit Carrollton app for iOS devices. The app is a great resource for local attractions, restaurants, hotels, transportation and upcoming local events. It's even GPS enabled so you can find the attractions closest to you.
The app is a fun way to help plan your visit to Carrollton and Carroll County. If you're a resident, it can help you discover new parks and restaurants you may have overlooked.
Originally the app was only available on iOS devices, but now its been made available for Android devices through Google's Play Store.
From the CVB:
The Carrollton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau announced this week that a free mobile device application it has produced featuring Carrollton/Carroll County tourism information is now available for download at the Apple App Store and Android App Store.
The application, or “app” for short, is built around a map with lodging, dining, shopping, events, attractions and other visitor information available at the touch of the screen of an Apple mobile device like iPhone or iPad or Android Smart Phones. The app can be filtered to show just one category of locations, all of them or a combination, with each location expandable to the visitor by simply touching the locator button on the map.
“We’re excited to have this new way to put our community’s attractions and amenities literally in the hands of our visitors,” said CVB Executive Director Jonathan Dorsey. “There’s always a need for printed brochures and visitor guides, but now we also have this fantastic marketing tool to help us promote our area as a destination to the growing segment of travelers using mobile devices.”
Dorsey said the app contains links to many websites including the CVB’s at www.visitcarrollton.com, making the app a fully-integrated component of the CVB’s online marketing strategy.
