SACRAMENTO, CALIF. - The Sacramento area is prominently featured in the first regional California travel app-the "NorCalGuide."

The free "Northern California Travel Guide" app provides comprehensive coverage of Sacramento and the surrounding region. It offers quick access to listings of attractions, accommodations, restaurants, events and points of interest, plus maps, photos and deals. The app is GPS-enabled and searchable by category or name. It's available on Apple's App Store now, with an Android version coming out later this summer.

Gold Country Visitors Association (GCVA) and Central Valley Tourism Association(CVTA), each representing more than a dozen counties and 40 cities (including Sacramento, Folsom, Stockton, Roseville, South Lake Tahoe) teamed up to offer the exciting new iPhone and iPad travel app that puts all essential information needed to plan a great Northern California vacation right in the palm of a visitors hand. The app showcases the best attractions and experiences this region has to offer.

"The reality is that visitors don't care about city limits and boundaries; one day they might be interested in a museum in Old Sacramento, the next day a trip to a winery in El Dorado County and the next day a nice dinner in South Lake Tahoe," says Sonya Bradley, Chief Marketing Officer for the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The Northern California Travel app was funded by a multi-regional grant from theCalifornia Travel and Tourism Commission, and funds from GCVA and CVTA members. The app was developed by Miles Weaver, North America's leading travel publisher specializing in expert content creation and distribution for destinations via print, web, e-mail and other integrated marketing channels.
