Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
Go Trexx (http://gotrexx.com), a developer of entertaining travel applications for children, has launched the “Los Angeles Travel Guide…For KIDS!” for Apple and Android platforms. The app, designed for use by young travelers rather than parents, engages children before and during travel by combining education with entertaining features that drive a deeper appreciation for the most popular tourist destinations around LA.
“Los Angeles is a fascinating tourism destination with a wide variety of attraction options for families – from studio tours to museums,” notes Go Trexx founder Samantha Lurey. “Our app gives children a deeper appreciation of the educational sites, like the La Brea Tar Pits, but also enables them to delve deeper into some of the city’s more entertainment-focused attractions, like the Santa Monica Pier.”
The app offers a number of educational and entertaining features to be used prior to and during family vacations. Among them:
- Curious Travel Facts: While adults may focus on the logistics of getting around Los Angeles, children may be more interested in knowing how to spot celebrities. Los Angeles Travel Guide…For KIDS! offers curious travel facts about destinations and provide educational insight into the points of interest they are touring.
- Engaging Trivia: Children have an opportunity to test their knowledge with fun quizzes and other trivia to further reinforce their learning experience and create more enjoyment. This trivia can also drive conversations with their parents or other travelers to enrich the vacation experience.
- Customizable Postcards: The app enables children to place themselves into iconic scenes in Los Angeles, including the LA Zoo, Griffith Park and the Santa Monica Pier, to create custom postcards that they can save to their devices and share with friends.
At launch, Los Angeles Travel Guide…For KIDS! will feature 12 of the most popular tourist destinations in the city, including the Los Angeles Zoo, Hollywood attractions, the Natural History Museum and Studio Tours and Universal Studios. The app is available for download on both Apple and Android platforms for $3.99. For more information about the app, visit http://gotrexx.com.
