The Marietta Visitors Bureau's new Visit Marietta Square App for iPhone, iPad and Android users was released on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
The app is free to download and allows you to explore Marietta at your fingertips. Categories include dining, attractions, lodging, events and more.
“For an interactive hotel booking experience, the app offers a quick, easy and secure way to find and book hotels nearby,” said Theresa Jenkins, Executive Director. “To make the app even more inviting, we have plans to add a heritage tourism component in the near future.”
Also there are plans for a “Hip Deals” section as well as individual special event apps.
The app’s "Connect" feature provides up-to-date information on various events and happenings taking place in the area, and allows users to stay connected with the Marietta Visitors Bureau on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and online at mariettasquare.com.
“Mobile technology is fast becoming vital for tourism businesses, and we wanted to take advantage of the value-added benefits of having a digital presence that could help to boost tourism in Marietta,” stated Marketing & PR Manger Katie Peterson.
“Our app improves the way you plan your visit to Marietta and includes easy-to-search comprehensive listings for events, dining, attractions, lodging and more,” Peterson said.
The app was designed to enhance the visitor travel experience while increasing the visibility of Marietta and eventually generating revenue through hotel/motel tax and travel spending.
“Now a days, people are always on the go. Visitors can get more out of their stay in our community through the Visit Marietta Square App that offers convenience in experiencing the local area,” said Jenkins.
