  • (1888PressRelease) December 12, 2011 - The city of Peoria has unveiled its new GoPeoria Smartphone application, where visitors can go to get information on stores, entertainment, outdoor recreation, arts and culture, and much more. The free app is available to download at the iTunes App Store or Android Market, or on Peoria's visitor website

    Known as the spring training home of the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners, who share the Peoria Sports Complex, the city has much to offer all types of visitors, not just sports enthusiasts. The apps feature a number of self guided tours that provide unique insight & suggested stops to make your experience in Peoria more memorable.

    GoPeoria offers many visitor-friendly features, including:
    • Interactive, zoomable GPS maps that indicate a visitor's current location and selected points of interest (must have connectivity for maps)
    • A description of each location
    • Video/Audio (when available)
    • Images
    • Additional embedded information such as phone numbers, websites and routing directions deliver all the information needed for each stop

    GoPeoria was created using the GoExplore™ Smartphone App Platform software by BarZ Adventures. The software allows any organization to create and update its own visitor guide applications that include maps, images, video, event listings, coupons and more. BarZ Adventures works with CVBs, state and federal parks, scenic byways, college campuses, historic attractions and other types of organizations that have a story to tell.

    "BarZ is pleased and honored that visitors can use the new GoPeoria Smartphone app to discover the wonderful things to see and do in and around the city. We look forward to bringing this technology to other cities, attractions and destinations to assist in their tourism marketing and visitor outreach," said Wm. Lee Little, founder and CEO of BarZ Adventures.
