DOWNLOAD SOME FUN!
While many of our events include guided tours of downtown’s businesses and amenities, we know that sometimes you just want to explore on your own. To help you do that, we’ve put together a few easy, themed tours you can download to your smartphone.
These tours make use of Avenza – a simple app you can install on your phone that lets you see your current location in relation to the tour maps we’ve created. The Avenza Maps® app uses your device’s built-in GPS to locate you even when you are out of range of a network or internet connection. See where you are going without using your data!
We currently have the following maps available on Avenza:
Downtown Public Art Walk
Downtown Brewery & Distillery Crawl
Downtown Cafe Crawl
