MANISTIQUE — Schoolcraft County is getting some international attention thanks to a new app.
Discover Manistique works with any smartphone. There’s a variety of information about places to eat and stay.
Plus, things to do including community events.
The app also has nearby areas like Alger and Delta Counties.
Discover Manistique has already had around 1,000 downloads from all over the U.S. and the world.
Alan Barr is the CEO of Schoolcraft Tourism and Commerce. He says, “Part of our analytics package allows us to go in and look for where was it downloaded. So, what city and what country. Somebody said hey somebody from Taiwan downloaded the app. We thought that’s pretty cool. But, how did they find it? So, a month or two go by and about three weeks ago somebody comes in from Taiwan. It was a whole family and they said hey we found your app and we liked what we saw. We decided we’d come and spend a vacation here.”
You can find the app by going to DiscoverManistique.com.
There’s a button to download the app to your phone.
