MOBILE APP NOW LEADING YOUR OLD WEST WICKENBURG TOUR
WICKENBURG, ARIZONA – The Smartphone has become the new tour guide for travelers “out Wickenburg way.”
The Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce has launched www.walkwickenburg.com, a mobile-compatible walking tour chronicling the town’s top attractions for trailblazers who like to explore on their own time – and avoid toting maps and clunky guidebooks during their travels.
Launched at the end of June, the new mobile app offers a self-guided, tech-based walking tour highlighting 31 different local landmarks, complete with images and brief explanations of the various sights.
“The new walking tour gives visitors the opportunity to take a peek into the past and see our historical downtown and the life size character bronzes depicting our western pioneer heritage,” said Julie Brooks, executive director of the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce. “And hopefully, they’ll come away with a renewed appreciation for what a rich history this area has.”
Walking tour paper maps are still available at the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce, located at 216 N Frontier St, for those without Smartphone capability or who simply prefer a technology-free tour.
