Visit Delaware unveiled their latest promotional product, a virtual reality tour of some of the First State's most famous sites.
The program, available at Visitdelaware.com, shows users 360-degree views at spots in the First State from Wilmington's Nemours Estate, canoeing in Trap Pond State Park, and strolling down Rehoboth Beach.
"There is a synergy between tourism and technology," said Delaware Director of Tourism Liz Keller. "We have an opportunity to show these endless discoveries."
Keller formally unveiled the tour by having Gov. John Carney don a headset and experience the show.
Garnering the notice of the First State's top official is a good start, but the program is aimed at travelers looking to come in from outside it.
"It's mean to be a glimpse--a conversation starter, so that hopefully, they will come and experience it," said Keller.
Bringing in new tourism will help in Keller's efforts, which boasted record numbers for Delaware's economy in 2016.
“One of the most important ways the state tourism office works to drive out-of-state visitation to Delaware is by keeping on top of the changing landscape of technology," said Keller. “Staying at the forefront means adopting new technologies, listening to customers, and engaging with them.”
