The Florida Stories audio tour app, available for free provides 11 walking tours of cities including Tampa’s Ybor City, Tarpon Springs and Key West, where you’ll discover how history shaped the state.
As a travel writer, I prepare for my trips with advance research to find out what makes an area unique. I have learned that knowing more about a community’s historical past always makes it more of a treasured experience.
And for me, by discovering how each town fits into Florida’s historical puzzle, I begin to piece together my state’s heritage into a larger story.
Recently I found an amazing tool to open new explorations for my Florida travels. It’s not only easy to use – it’s FREE. The Florida Humanities Council has created The Florida Stories audio tour app, for use on your phone or mobile device that gives you walking tours of Florida’s most fascinating communities. And it’s simple. Just download and use it to prepare for your trip or as a walking guide while there. This simple and informative guide will make your time spent much more meaningful and fun.
In my book, that’s smart travel.
It’s like having your own private tour guide. Audio narration with synchronized photos will lead you step-by-step with a bundled package of history, new and old pictures, maps, key architectural landmarks and tales of historical characters that have contributed to the town’s heritage. And once downloaded you don’t need to worry about expensive roaming charges, because you don’t need internet connection.
