About The Project
Among its many other outstanding qualities, the City of Long Beach has become the second city in the nation to have installed QR codes throughout the town in order to provide visitors with instant access to more information about the sites and curiosities the area has on offer.

These two-dimensional barcodes are an innovative use of technology to enhance the visitor experience. Because the codes are read by cell phones, they allow the reader to have an easily portable method of learning the background or more interesting facts as they walk through an attraction. Instead of having to read a guide book or open a laptop to look things up, visitors can immediate satisfy their desire to know more.

In addition to the 19 QR codes which form the Discovery Trail tour, an additional dozen or so QR codes have been installed. Plans call for additional codes to be added in future.
