Tourism Vancouver has recently launched an iPad app to help visitors find their way to some of the best attractions, events, and activities. Available now in the iTunes App Store, this free download offers everything from transit information to photos and videos of our region.
Features include a digital city tour, transportation options to and from Vancouver, accommodation search (from hostel to hotel), restaurant search, activity listings, calendar and magazine, photo and video galleries.
I haven’t had the chance to play with the app yet but there is a lot of praise for it already on social media. I already like the idea of it providing content offline as well.
This is just the latest digital offering from Tourism Vancouver who runs a robust website, popular blog, and Twitter account.
To spread the word about the iPad app, they have offered up $100 for the Tickets Tonight box office.
Through the Tickets Tonight box office (on line or in person at 200 Burrard) you can pick up tickets for MusicFest Vancouver, Honda Celebration of Light reserved seats, Theatre Under the Stars, and more. Here’s how you can enter to win:
- Leave a comment here naming 1 thing every Vancouver visitor should see (1 entry)
- Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
I will draw one winner at random from all entries next Monday, June 18, 2012 at 12:00pm. Update The winner is @Qbots!
