The Natchitoches Historic District Development Commission (NHDDC) unveils the new GoNatchitoches app, a trip planner and community calendar that serves as an interactive way to map out everything visitors and residents want to see and do in Natchitoches.

Designed with partners at VisitWidget, this tool provides a new way to explore what Natchitoches has to offer, including upcoming events, popular attractions, restaurants, oddities, lodging, shops, landmarks and more. Users can view it all at once or search by categories like Attractions, Dining, Arts & Culture, Lodging and others.

“We are very proud of this project and feel confident that the GoNatchitoches app will not only allow our visitors, but our residents to discover, plan and enjoy all that Natchitoches has to offer,” remarked NHDDC Chairman Van Erikson.

See a festival you don’t want to miss? Click “Add” and the event will be added to the user’s plan and a reminder will be sent.

That restaurant everyone keeps talking about? Click “Add” to remember to try it.

Want to invite some friends? The plan can be shared with them via social media, email or SMS text message.

With this planner, GoNatchitoches can help visitors and residents get organized and maximize time to have more fun in Natchitoches. Already traveling or living here? Download the app for iPhone or Android and take your personalized plan everywhere. Type “GoNatchitoches” in the search box of Google Play or the iPhone app store.
