Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau Launches New App

July 28, 2015

The Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to announce it has launched a new app, Discover Brown County. The app is Brown County’s official handheld, mobile guide, providing easy navigation for visitors.

With its click-to-call feature, visitors will now be able to access more information on shops, restaurants, attractions, and lodging properties, as well as make reservations quickly. Discover Brown County also will provide visitors with the opportunity to find and search for events happening throughout the county. Additionally, visitors will be able to share their favorite Brown County locations and connect with the Brown County Visitors Center on social media through the app.

Visitors no longer will have to wander around or stop to ask for directions to find parking, restrooms, or other attractions. Instead, the app’s easy-to-follow directions will guide visitors to the destinations they are seeking.

Brooke Weichselfelder, Brown County CVB Digital Marketing Coordinator, explains that the new app was designed with the visitor’s convenience in mind. “Not only does the Discover Brown County app show you what there is in Brown County, it uses your phone’s location services to find out what’s closest to where you’re currently at,” says Weichselfelder. “Looking for a quick bite to eat and don’t want to walk far? It will pull up all of the restaurants in order of how close they are to your current location.”

Weichselfelder also believes Brown County’s new app is a great resource for both visitors and the local community. She encourages everyone to check it out. “Whatever you’re looking for in Brown County, whether it’s where to go hiking, where to see a live show, where to find the closest beverage, or even a local events calendar, you can find it on this app,” says Weichselfelder. “It’s like having a personal tour guide right in your pocket!”

The Discover Brown County app is free and can be downloaded on mobile devices through the App Store or on Google Play. For more information on the app, please visit or call 812-988-7303.
