Learn facts about the history hidden all around you, including architecture, museums, battlefields, monuments, famous houses and more! And now you can explore TOURS, a new feature that uses locations to explore historical themes and themes such as Marilyn Monroe’s Hollywood, Atlanta Civil War, and Chicago Al Capone.

I mapped my old neighborhood in Houston, for example, and found myself living right next to Howard Hughes’ childhood home (actually part of St.Thomas University, but easy to visit). In addition to historic houses and museums, the app also displays the tombs of historical figures and places where historical events took place. Pick a spot on the map for a short history lesson.

You can save waypoints and also get alerts when you walk near a mapped area. The app also contains a list of specially selected tours to different cities. See for yourself using the link below.
