New app recommends Philadelphia’s best drinking spots ahead of Philly Beer Week

May 5, 2014 Apps No Comments Email Email

Global city tour company, Urban Adventures has launched a free iPhone app which recommends the best places to visit in Philadelphia, including ten drinking spots favoured by locals.

The Philadelphia Urban Adventures Treasure mApp (free, iOS) has been launched ahead of Philly Beer Week, which will take place from May 30 – June 8, 2014 and is the largest festival of its kind in America.

As well as a hand-picked selection of the city’s best bars, pubs and live music venues, the Philadelphia Urban Adventures app suggests places to eat, shop and sightsee off-the-beaten-track. It alerts travellers when they are close to a recommended spot and it works offline, so international travelers can track down a decent beer without the need for wifi.

Year-round, Urban Adventures offers beer-lovers a guided Philly on Tap tour (US$39), which visits places such as Philadelphia’s oldest pub, a brewery where beer is made just metres from the table, and an “Irish pub with a Philly vibe”, to sample some of the city’s finest craft brews and beer snacks.

Other popular tours in the city include History in HD ($25), which explores some of America’s most important historic sites, and a guided tour of Philadelphia’s 9th Street Italian Market ($25).

The team behind Philadelphia Urban Adventures will soon open a welcome centre at 229 Arch Street, in the heart of the historic Old City, where travelers can grab a coffee, find out what’s going on in the city, book tours and attractions, or even practice on a Segway before hitting the streets of Philadelphia.

Currently, there are Urban Adventures Treasure mApps for 16 cities, with new destinations being added regularly. Urban Adventures also offers beer tours in PragueTorontoAmsterdam, San Jose and New York, where three new craft beer tours have recently been launched.
