TourWindsorCT.org Adds Restaurants, Retail and Attractions to Mobile Website
Anyone who's walked around Windsor center knows there's plenty to see and do. But did you know there's a mobile website to show you step by step all the hot spots in Windsor?

TourWindsorCT.org is a mobile website created by the Windsor Chamber, First Town Downtown and the Windsor Historical Society to help spread the word about Windsor historic sites, points of interest, shops, restaurants and attractions.

Start walking and see some interesting sites that even lifelong residents of Windsor may not be aware of. The website allows you to create your own path as you walk, bike, or ride around town. Just point your smartphone, tablet or computer to www.TourWindsorCT.org and add it to your phone's home screen for future use.

The initial site launch in May 2015 included 68 sites between St. Gabriel’s Church to the south and Palisado Green to the North. All sites have a photo and description of what you're looking at, and many also have 'Learn More' links to more information.

Today, Windsor center retail, restaurants and attractions were added to the website. Later this year, more historic sites and local businesses will be added to the site, which will come from the Poquonock, Day Hill and Wilson areas of town.

Fun facts are also available on the site. Did you know that the play and movie Arsenic and Old Lace is based on life of Windsor’s Amy Archer-Gilligan.

"Using the mobile site makes it easy to walk around the center, see some unexpected sites, learn about our unique architecture, see some creative outdoor artwork and get some exercise at the same time," says Ashley Williams, First Town Downtown's Main Street Coordinator.

In the spring, we will be unveiling a new "Where's Bob" contest. "Safari Bob", a local icon and community volunteer will be pictured at various locations found on the TourWindsorCT.org website. Guess his location correctly and become eligible for daily prizes. For more information about this contest, go to TourWindsorCT.org, or to any of the three partner websites and subscribe to their email newsletters. More details will be announced as May approaches.a

The Windsor Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit business membership organization here to help businesses work together to support the local economy and enhance the quality of life in Windsor. For more information, visit www.WindsorCC.org.

The mission of First Town Downtown is to position and promote Windsor Center as a premier New England Town center that protects and utilizes its proud heritage as the basis for developing vibrant recreational, economic, and cultural activity. For more information or for membership information, visit www.FirstTownDowntown.org

Windsor Historical Society inspires public awareness and appreciation of the diverse peoples, places, and events that contribute to Windsor’s evolving history. The Society includes exhibits, two historic homes, a hands-on learning center, a research library filled with historic manuscripts and photographs, and a museum shop.
