• Let your smartphone be your guide


    As the second state admitted to the American union, Pennsylvania holds the key to much of the country's history. While museums offer guided tours that detail the background of the United States, exploring outdoor landmarks don't often come with the same luxury. Luckily, Philadelphia has created a mobile application that will allow travelers with a smartphone to download a virtual tour of the city.

    The app, entitled "Museum Without Walls," is an audio guide that can be downloaded directly from the program's website, and iPhone and iPod touch users can get it in the iTunes store. The creators know that not all tourists are equipped with smartphones, so there are phone numbers available at each landmark that they can call for free to get more information.

    Spanning three miles through the Philadelphia streets, visitors will be able to see nearly 90 attractions on the self-guided tour, including the famous "LOVE" sculpture by Robert Indiana, Auguste Rodin's "The Thinker" and "Joan of Arc" by Emmanuel Fremiet.

    This is an exciting new development in the tourism industry, and technologically savvy travelers may be seeing the program implemented in other major cities in the future.
