If you’re looking for new, one of a kind experiences here in Tampa Bay, then Tour Tampa Bay Architecture might be worth some of your time.
Presented by the American Institute of Architects in Tampa, Tour Tampa Bay Architecture is a self-guided walking tour where your smartphone is your guide. Aside from needing a smartphone, the tour is completely free and a great way to get immersed in the rich history, culture, and architecture of the Tampa Bay area, specifically Downtown Tampa.
Tour Tampa Bay Architecture utilizes QR codes placed on notable landmarks around Downtown Tampa. Smartphone users can scan these codes with their phone’s camera and the necessary app to access a collection of multimedia content regarding the specific landmark.
To take part, iPhone users need to download Neoreader from the app store (it’s free) which will scan these special QR codes for you. Other smartphone users can search “QR code scanner” in their app store and find the QR code scanner that fits them best. Most of them are free of charge to download.
Do note, though, that your cell phone provider may charge for internet data used with this app. Check with your provider if you’re unsure.
