Royal Footsteps Smartphone App Launches!
Thanks to a grant from Hawaii Tourism Authority, HTA-funding via the County of Hawaii County Product Enrichment Program and the local Byway Committee, the Kailua Village Business Improvement District (KVBID) launched a free smartphone application for the Royal Footsteps Along the Kona Coast Byway.

The Kona Royal Footsteps App is an interpretive experience that focuses on Alii Drive's roughly seven miles of roadway with seven centuries of archaeological, historic and cultural traditions and more than two dozen impressive points of interest.
