"Hello Erie" Mobile App and Self Guided Tours of Erie's Cultural Attractions



One of the best ways to really get to know a city is to see its art and culture. VisitErie has created the "Hello Erie" mobile app, which includes a series of self guided tours to outline these cultural highlights across the city. They even have navigation set up within their mobile phone app. The categories for tours include:
-African American Heritage Trail
-Erie's Lighthouses Tour
-Pennsylvania Historical Markers of Erie County
-Murals of Erie County Self Guided Tour
-Downtown Erie Sculpture Walk
-Home Port Erie Driving Tour
-Underground Railroad Biking Route
-Gems of the City
-West Bayfront Walking Tour
-10 Energizing Outdoor Adventures and Trails
-Get Your Grape on in Lake Erie Wine Country
The "Let the Children Sing" mural celebrates the legendary Erie native Harry T. Burleigh who was a pioneer in American classical music. Having been born in 1866, he was the second generation of his family to be born free from enslavement, with his grandfather achieving manumission from Maryland in 1835. He went on to be a pioneer in American classical music and mentored and coached the next generation of singers, including civil rights icon and legendary singer Marian Anderson, and Paul Robeson. It is wonderful that a tribute has been created for him. Art celebrating the heritage of the region is located all over the city and a tour has been created by VisitErie to see them.

Additionally, they also have different filters to see all of the attractions of the city in a pin map with navigation and filters, including for things such as dining, and dog friendly activities. 
The app is a wonderful guide to what the city has to offer. We have visited Erie countless times, but with the app, we saw things on this last trip that we had never seen before. 

We are big fans of aimlessly driving and seeing new things, and that always happens when we visit Erie, but we were guided a little bit more to find more of the gems that the city has to offer through the awesome "Hello Erie" mobile app. More info can be found at https://www.visiterie.com
