(Harlan County, KY)—The Cumberland Tourist Commission and Harlan Tourist Commission are pleased to announce that Harlan County is featured prominently on the Travel Kentucky application for iPhone, iPad, iTouch and Google Android smartphone technologies.

Created by Kentucky Monthly magazine, Travel Kentucky showcases statewide tourism destinations through a combination of themed tours, searchable category directories, and real-time, GPS-triggered, turn by turn directional routing.

The app is available now on iTunes and the Android Marketplace as a free download. 

Harlan County is featured in the app’s “City Guides,” providing users with a full directory of all Harlan County’s attractions, restaurants, shops, lodging, and much more.

Cumberland and Harlan Tourism’s participation on the app provides a new and unique way for Harlan County to be marketed to visitors, as the app works to connect users to destinations that they are interested in by topic, what is nearby, and by themed tours.

“Our goal for Travel Kentucky is to help visitors find and explore destinations that they may never have heard of before,” said Kentucky Monthly publisher Steve Vest.  “By exploring themed tours and searching for subjects of interest on the app, we hope to expand visitors’ awareness of the communities and attractions we have here in Kentucky.”
