iPhone apps help explore Denver
Ryan Summerlin September 5, 2011
Exploring a new city can be daunting. Two new iPhone apps developed by Breckenridge resident Katie Hilborn are intended to provide fun and entertaining walking tours through Denver.
The two apps, developed in conjunction with iPhone software company GPSMyCity, turn an iPhone into a tour guide helping visitors navigate the walking tours.
Hilborn wrote and narrated both a microbrew tour, featuring famous breweries and tasting rooms in downtown Denver, and a historical and cultural tour, featuring a wide selection of sites from Civic Center Park to the 16th Street Mall to Larimer Square.
The apps come with detailed tour route maps and navigation features using GPS technology to guide the user from one site to the next with turn-by-turn directions to attractions, monuments as well as hidden gems.
Microbrew tour of Denver
Denver is now known nationally as the “Napa Valley of Beers,” and is great location for a microbrew walking tour. In fact, it has 74 breweries within 100 miles of downtown and is home to the annual Great American Beer Festival.
The microbrew tour takes you to 10 breweries and tasting rooms, all within walking distance. The app provides a written and audio narration of each stop on the tour.
Historical and cultural
tour of Denver
The historical and cultural tour gives visitors and locals alike the chance to learn about the history and culture of Denver. Users can hear the history behind famous landmarks.
Both apps are currently available for purchase through iTunes.
