Visit York County app now available

The Rock Hill/York County Convention & Visitors Bureau has launched its first mobile app “Visit York County, SC.” It is available in the Apple Store for iPhone users and on Google Play for Android users.

Visit York County, SC is an “eat, stay, and play” app that was created to help visitors and residents find local restaurants, places to stay and things to see and do.

“York County, SC is an accessible, affordable and authentic destination, so we created the app with those things in mind,” said Sonja Burris, communications manager for the Rock Hill/York County CVB.

To promote the new app, the Rock Hill/York County CVB has a a month-long Facebook photo contest for users that download the app.

Until Aug. 22, those who download the Visit York County, SC app can enter to win a Samsung tablet. The contest will include a photo scavenger hunt, in which participants must find the selected image within the app to be eligible to win. Once the image is found, participants have the chance to win one of two Samsung tablets.

Users may enter the contest via the Visit York County, SC Facebook page or the CVB website,
