Amazingly the modern Web is taking its place among township organisations' communication methods — some that go back over a hundred years, in the case of Kinston-Lenoir County. The Internet is taking such local resources into the new age, where the Web replaces things such as maps, encyclopedias and guidebooks.
<h2>How to Explore Land</h2>
The truth is, we have moved into an era of Internet-aided activities in general — the temptation but also the use-value of taking advantage of the mobile Web while traveling, for example, is hard to resist. The majority of people who come to our locale are computer-aided, carrying smartphones and tablets that are connected to the Web.
The term for this state of affairs is is 'augmented reality', which means that a person relies upon some kind of screen or feedback device while moving about in public space. This provides a virtual overlay on what is seen in the world at hand. People in cities using these devices (they do exist already) experience something like what we saw in science fiction just a couple of decades back.
<h2>Play and Go</h2>
We find that many visitors are plugged in, although not to the extent of those virtual reality goggles we just mentioned. Their smartphones and tablets do enough to keep them wired and online at all times. Of course, although this does aid navigation and can help highlight certain sites; but it can also distract some youngsters from looking out the window.
Fortunately, many of the businesses and services in this county offer websites and other online resources that help visitors (and locals!) find them. The Web has so much content, of so many types, it is hard to categorize something so vast — and that is part of the reason it is rather helpful nowadays. Still, it is important to resist its toys and games sometimes — both kids and their parents, really.
A Case of Reality
The Internet puts certain forms of entertainment online that used to be the turf of particular well-known cities and towns (and drew people there). For example, land-based casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, various Indian casinos throughout the country used to be a charming tourist motivation, for the gambling.
But now those games are available on the Web, even on mobile phones, putting that kind of tourism business in real, local communities that were known for them into decline and gloom. On the other hand, this turn of events has opened up cards, slots, keno and other great casino games to a larger audience, and, appeals to people who like the games but not the smoky casinos.
The new casino sites for mobile games that parents enjoy sit online alongside apps for their kids, business applications, communications, maps that help explore during vacations.
We're excited about the ways the Web invites people, through this site, to visit the place we love and love to share, and the fact that it helps them while exploring here — even if they usually bring along a few digital distractions, too.
