Nebraska Tourism Launches Mobile Version of VisitNebraska.gov Website

New site gives mobile users the ability to search for events, attractions and more

Lincoln, Neb. — Oct. 20, 2010 — To make it easier for travelers to get information while they’re on the move, the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s (DED) Division of Travel and Tourism has developed a mobile version of the VisitNebraska.gov website. The new functionality allows users of mobile devices to search the Nebraska Tourism database of recreation, events and attractions. Travelers can also view podcasts of Nebraska’s Byways.

“Travelers are increasingly turning to Wi-Fi–enabled mobile devices or smartphones as a source of information as they travel,” said Christian Hornbaker, director of DED’s Division of Travel and Tourism. “By giving these travelers a mobile site that allows them to quickly find the events, attractions and recreational opportunities they’re looking for, we’re empowering them to be able to be flexible with their planning. And the ability to be flexible can be the difference between merely a good vacation and an absolutely unforgettable trip.”

VisitNebraska.gov visitors using mobile devices will be automatically routed to the new mobile site. It is also available through a link on the main VisitNebraska.gov home page. The site can be accessed by all types of mobile devices and smartphones including the iPhone and Android handsets. Specific support of the iPhone means the site contains no Flash or use of HTML5.

For more information or to view the new mobile site, go to VisitNebraska.gov and click on the Take Us With You icon.
