San Diego (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
Starting October 13, San Diegans will have a new way to explore the city with Stray Boots’ new San Diego: The Game series of tours. Stray Boots is offering a special free ticket promotion to the first 100 people who sign up before October 13. Free tickets can be acquired for a limited time by visiting http://www.strayboots.com/sandiego.
San Diego: The Game is a refreshing alternative to traditional tours that rush you through the highlights with boring commentary. It uses mobile technology to immerse players in informative and enjoyable self-guided, interactive tours. The tours combine the fun of a scavenger hunt with the sights, history and insider knowledge of a top-notch tour.
San Diego: The Game is easy to play and works by text message, so players can use virtually any US mobile phone. Players are guided by text message challenges that include riddles, puzzles, photo opps and trivia questions as they tour the points of interest along the route. Each response earns the urban explorer points, making it possible to compete between groups of friends, family members, or pre-assigned teams. And since San Diego: The Game is a completely self-guided experience, players can start when they want and set their own pace as they go. Each tour takes about two to three hours to complete.

San Diego: The Game offers two meticulously researched tours designed to delight San Diegans and tourists alike with intriguing facts and amusing activities. For locals looking for something different to do, it makes a great date, family outing, or just a day out on the town with friends. San Diego: The Game tours cover the major sights and attractions, but also include cool "insider" and off-the-beaten-path gems:
- The Gaslamp Quarter tour takes players on a trek through the beating heart of San Diego known for boisterous entertainment and historic sights. The tour includes beautiful Victorian buildings, famous saloons, the William Heath Davis House, Joseph Jessup Clock and a host of historic hotels and marvelous monuments.
- The Balboa Park tour offers stunning vistas and awe inspiring architecture. Players take a scenic stroll that treats them to beautiful botanical gardens, Shakespeare’s Globe, stunning sculptures, the Timken Museum of Art and even the world’s largest organ.
- Coming later this fall are additional tours including a rip-roaring trip through Old Town San Diego.
Starting October 13, 2011 San Diego: The Game will be offered at a special introductory price of US$12 per ticket. Until then, a limited number of free tickets can be acquired online at http://www.strayboots.com/sandiego.
