WEB VERSION OF OUR “Experience Newcomb APP”

Introducing the Experience Newcomb smartphone app

Known as the “Heart of the Park,” the town of Newcomb is picturesque, family-friendly, and full of small-town charm and activities. Recently, the Town of Newcomb worked with zCivic, an app development company, to create a unique, tourism-focused app to support visitors to the community. The result, the Experience Newcomb smartphone app, is an exciting new guide to discovering Newcomb!

What is it?

The Experience Newcomb app provides comprehensive information about things to do, and where to shop, eat, play, and stay in the Newcomb area. Thanks to the app, planning adventures have never been easier! The Town of Newcomb continues to deliver legendary small-town hospitality to outdoor enthusiasts near or far, with the app providing a unique, interactive way to learn more about the area. Its local attractions, to name just a few, include the High Peaks Golf Course, the Essex Chain Lakes, Great Camp Santanoni, two fire towers, Upper Works (access to the Southern Adirondack High Peaks trail system), the Village of Adirondac, Lake Henderson, Tahawus, Lake Harris, and the source of the Hudson River.

What’s in the app?

What isn’t in the app! The app includes directories of local businesses and organizations, interactive GPS mapping, and a full events list. From food and lodging to museums and shopping, the app offers detailed information and useful information.

Adventure seekers can learn about the town’s unique Experience Newcomb adventure patch program, which encourages visitors to explore Newcomb’s incredible variety of natural outdoor attractions, including paddling, hiking, visiting Great Camp Santanoni, snowshoeing, biking, and much more. App users can find detailed information about how to earn each patch along with a form for users to “Check-in” to start earning patches. These four different patches are rewarded for accomplishing designated activities all through out Newcomb with the driving principle of “Leave No Trace.”

History aficionados can even use the app to partake in one of Newcomb’s most exciting events: Teddy Roosevelt Weekend! Learn all about Teddy Roosevelt’s special connection to Newcomb, NY (the starting point of Roosevelt’s midnight ride to the presidency). During TR Weekend, users can use the app to navigate to events with fun things to see and do for the whole family.

The app also shares information with users about collaborations with the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, Adirondack Hub (Newcomb, North Hudson, Minerva, and Schroon lake), and the 5 Towns (Newcomb, North Hudson, Minerva, Indian Lake, & Long Lake). It is a strong collective belief of the Town of Newcomb, and the other towns in both organizations, that we can accomplish more when they work together.

Who made the app?

The Town of Newcomb, NY worked with zCivic to create Experience Newcomb. Newcomb is a small, progressive, and business-friendly community at the geographic center of the Adirondack Park of New York State. As such, it sees many visitors so creating a mobile guide to assist with pre-trip planning and on-the-ground support for visitors while in Newcomb was an important goal of the town.

How do I download it?

Users can download the Experience Newcomb app today on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and receive push notifications of upcoming events, weather conditions and more. Visitors to the Town of Newcomb that do not have a smart phone can access the Experience Newcomb app at the touch screen kiosk located at the Newcomb Information Center.
