Geotourist Launches Audio Tour of Congress Avenue

Congress Avenue is Austin’s main business thoroughfare cutting through the center of town from the Texas State Capitol down to the Colorado River. South of Lady Bird Lake, South Congress Avenue, or SoCo, as locally known, has become a hip destination with eclectic shops, restaurants, music venues, art galleries and boutique hotels.

Geotourist, the travel social media app, has created an audio tour of Congress Avenue for the Austin Chapter of American Institute of Architects. The self-guided audio tour starts at the Texas State Capitol, continues down to the Contemporary Austin, the City’s modern museum of art. After a stop at the Paramount Theater, the tour crosses the Colorado River to SoCo for an architectural tour of iconic and contemporary boutique hotels.

Visitors will be able to listen to the sites’ stories right on their smartphones. Users can download the Geotourist app and access each site’s audio tour based on their geographic positioning. They can share their favorites and leave comments.

The app and the tour are available for free download from the Apple and Google app stores.
