New App Helps Visitors Navigate New Orleans During Super Bowl
Social media is changing the way most visitors experience Super Bowl XLVII and the city of New Orleans. From finding a good restaurant, to ordering a cab, virtually everything you need to know can be found on your smart phone with new apps added for Super Bowl. Volunteers man a command center inside the Ernest Morial convention center, with the goal of providing answers to any Super Bowl-related question that may come their way. If someone sends a tweet to @nolasuperbowl asking, for example, where to get a good poboy, the tweet will pop up on the command center’s main screen. Then one of the many volunteers will respond to it. This is AWESOME! Even for those of us who are used to navigating New Orleans, it’s going to be chaos this weekend, and I’ll take all the help I can get!
