Smartphones seem to be everywhere these days and "Visit South Walton" is using this to their advantage.
They have released a brand new mobile app that brings real-time information about the nation's beaches straight to your phone.
It's called "U.S. Beach Finder" and it will locate the closest beach to you anywhere in the United States, but it doesn't stop there.
Just in time for the summer travel season, this mobile tool gives users the latest weather forecasts, ocean conditions, attractions and more pertaining to their beach of choice.
"Visit South Walton" officials say they are helping folks find their perfect beach, and, although they may not be looking into the 26 miles of South Walton's beaches, the potential of having their brand in the hands of millions across the nation was enough to spark inspiration.
"This application allows you to find your closest beach, location based software. It gives you all the conditions that you might be interested in at that beach. But it's always brought to you by "Visit South Walton." So it's a nice reminder that you might find your perfect beach in a lot of places, but never forget "Visit South Walton," said Jon Ervin, Market Director of "Visit South Walton."
The app is available to Android and iPhone users. The same information is also available on "Visit South Walton's" mobile site and web site:
