Royal Footsteps Smartphone App Launches!

Feb 26, 2013

Kailua Village Business Improvement District (KVBID) launched a free smartphone application that users can download to learn more about history, significant sites and things to do at the Royal Footsteps Along the Kona Coast, the state’s second Hawaii Scenic Byway. The Kona Royal Footsteps App is an interpretive experience that focuses on Alii Drive’s roughly seven miles of roadway with seven centuries of archaeological, historic and cultural traditions and more than two dozen impressive points of interest.

Thanks to efforts by Kailua Village Business Improvement District, the Local Byway Committee, a grant from Hawaii Tourism Authority, and to HTA-funded County of Hawaii County Product Enrichment Program funding, the Kona Royal Footsteps APP shares a tremendous amount of historical information and photos along with ocean recreation, shoreline access, area accommodations and more.

Downloads for the free apps are available for iTunes and Android.
