High school students develop Amarillo tourism app

Written by , published July 15, 2013

There's a new resource for Amarillo tourism information and it comes from an interesting group of locals.

Students of Amarillo's North Heights Alternative School created the Amarillo Tourism App: Where to Eat, Sleep, and Play for travelers and residents.

If you need something to do, you can just look it up, says Hope Stokes, a recent high school graduate who helped develop the app.

Stokes says students worked for three years to gather information for the app. The app contains more than 360 entries for local destinations, lodging, and restaurants.

Eric Miller, director of communications for the Amarillo Convention & Visitor Council, is working with the high school students to promote the app. He says it's a valuable resource for the local tourism industry.

It's worth checking out the app during your next venture to Amarillo. A portion of the proceeds from the $1.99 price goes to a scholarship fund for North Heights students.
