Luckie Marietta District Launches New Mobile App for Smartphones
With over 11.9 million annual visitors, the Luckie Marietta District in Downtown Atlanta is loaded with entertainment venues, restaurants, tours, hotels and lounges. More unique attractions are also on the way, like the College Football Hall of Fame (fall 2014) and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (spring 2014). To help locals and tourists get the most out of their visit to this walkable, safe and vibrant area, the Luckie Marietta District launched a new mobile web app.
“More and more people rely on their smartphones for directions and information, and the Luckie Marietta District app is a great tool to make exploring this exciting area even easier,” said Marika Johnson, executive director of the Luckie Marietta District. “Basically, we’ve created a digital travel brochure that people can conveniently access at their fingertips.”
The comprehensive mobile guide is a source of travel information that offers walking directions and suggestions on where to dine, what to do and where to stay. Many of the businesses are even offering discounts and promotions on the app. Examples of the many venues included on the app are SkyView Atlanta, Game-X, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Georgia Aquarium and the Omni Hotel. Users can also view general information and videos of the Luckie Marietta District and check in on Foursquare through the app.
To get the free app, text “LMDATL” to 313131 and click on the link. Users can then select “Dining,” “Things to Do” or “Where to Stay” and scroll through specific sub-categories, such as “Casual Dining,” “Quick Service Dining,” “Fine Dining,” “Museums and Attractions,” “Tours,” “Shopping” and “Sports.” Maps, directions, contact, ticketing and reservation information and additional details are listed for each venue and activity.
Located just three miles from Midtown, the Luckie Marietta District in Downtown Atlanta is easy to access from all areas of the city. Multiple covered parking decks allow for convenient parking and three MARTA stations make transportation to and from the neighborhood fuss-free. Soon, visitors will also be able to walk to the District from Centennial Olympic Park’s stop for the new Atlanta streetcar.
