The app, which is currently available in the iOS system for Apple, includes little-known facts, pictures and anecdotes about more than two dozen historic landmarks. Users can also locate nearby restrooms, bike racks, taxi information and banking ATMs.
There's an in-app purchase option for $1.99, that offers additional interactive amusement, including a triva game, scavenger hunt and a special "Murder & Mayhem" tour for those wanting to partake in the darker side of Old Sacaramento.
Those completing the activities are rewarded with a free treat from Evangelines, a prize from the Sacramento History Museum or a food discount from Ten22.
An Android version of the app is in the works.
Learn more and download the app at the Apple iTunes store.
Visitors to Old Sacramento can now take a self-guided tour with the help of a smartphone app.
