Words Trail brings this cool town to life

This app takes you through about 50 sites around one of the most extraordinary towns in New England. It takes you over a cool bridge over the Connecticut River to an undeveloped mountain trail, to an old graveyard where one of the world's most famous writers is buried (Saul Bellow), up funky streets, down to the back alleys -- highly recommend but age says 4 but definitely for more like 12 if it's a smart kid. Regional tour covers other towns nearby well worth a bike or car ride. Love it!
