New Lynchburg App Available

Lynchburg, VA - Central Virginia has a new App you can download off of iTunes, a new generation of the Discover Lynchburg App.

The App lists places to eat, fun things to go to, even happenings in the arts with a map to show you where to go.

There are local coupons attached to the App as well.

Discover Lynchburg teamed with an area company called Carrot Saver to develop the App.

Founders say this will be great for Lynchburg tourism, and for locals.

"Now, they can also see any local spots that are offering deals, and maybe plan their visit in conjunction with the timing of some of those offerings," said Beckie Nix with Discover Lynchburg.

"It's reported that over 50 percent of people in the U.S. have a smartphone, so targeting somebody's phone is almost essential at this point," said CEO/Founder of Carrot Saver Dustin Slightham.

If you have the first generation of the Discover Lynchburg app, you'll have to download the new one in order to get the coupons.
