LDS Living Mentions Our New App Too!
Use the App to Plan Your Trip
It is recommended to spend between 4-7 days seeing the sites between Independence and Nauvoo. After you buy the app, you will be able to look through the sites and see what looks most interesting to you by looking through the pictures and descriptions. We also give a rating for each stop and provide the hours of operation. Many of the sites have different hours in the summer versus the off season so play close attention to this detail as you plan your journey. Along with the LDS church history sites, we have also included several notable historic sites that may interest you including the Harry S. Truman sites in Independence, the Civil War battlegrounds in Lexington and the Mark Twain sites in Hannibal.
How the Tour Guide Works
After downloading the app with wifi (best to do at home before you leave or use your hotel, airport, or other wifi) you are ready to go. As you travel, the app will use GPS to know exactly where you are. When you approach designated locations, the guide will share a piece of LDS church history. Our goal is to educate, and inspire you as you travel between church history sites and possibly even make you laugh a little along the way. It works similar to an expensive guided tour, except you won't be herded on and off a tour bus. You can go at your own pace and you can see the things which are most interesting to your party. If for some reason you vary from the suggested path, you will still be able to hear any audio you missed by playing it manually. When you reach the attraction, the guide will share information about the site. The exception to this is in Nauvoo. The missionaries do such a great job sharing information about the homes we have chosen to let them share their knowledge.
