LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A new app aims to make it easier for people to plan trips to the sites in Louisa County.

The Visit Louisa app launched this week, along with an online companion tool that includes interactive maps and the ability to explore various categories of activities.

Some of the categories include Wineries, Breweries and Cideries; Golf; Tours and Trails, and Featured Shopping.

“This new app helps shed light on area businesses and events that make great day trips for residents of neighboring counties or add to the experiences of our week-long visitors,” said Duane Adams, the chairman of the Louisa County Board of Supervisors.

The app allows people to add points of interest and events as well as share plans with their friends via social media and email.

The Louisa County Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism worked with Visit Widget to design the app.
