Bastrop launches tourism app

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Want the scoop on fine dining, events, shopping and more in historic Bastrop, Texas? Look no farther than your smartphone. The city, which reportedly entertains up to 10,000 visitors per major community event each year, recently launched a free tourism app available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android-operated cellphones.

"I think every city or town should have [a tourism app for their area]," said Cindye Wolford, director of the Bastrop Visitor Center. Wolford, who also heads the Bastrop Texas Main Street Program Promotions Committee and helped develop the app's content, welcomes inquiries from other jurisdictions interested in producing their own version. "It was easy to do," said Wolford.

Bastrop's app, the brainchild of City Council Member Kay McAnally, offers photos, contact information and tips on various services, historic sites, entertainment opportunities and other local finds for visitors and residents. The app is downloadable at iTunes and Android websites. Call 512-303-0904 for more information.
