One of the coolest museums in Los Angeles right now has nothing to do with art or history, but with ice cream. That’s right, the Museum of Ice Cream is a temporary pop-up in Downtown L.A. and locals, tourists and celebrities are all scrambling for the coveted tickets.
Discover Los Angeles has just announced a way for three lucky winners to gain admission for two to this ice cream heaven. Become an Instagram sensation and make all your friends jealous by snapping colorful photos swimming around in the sprinkle pool. Winners will also receive a $260 gift card to Magpies to put towards an entire year’s worth of ice cream.
So, how do you win you ask? It’s as simple as eating more ice cream! The newly launched Discover L.A. app is making navigating through La La Land easier than ever for tourists and locals alike. There’s no longer reason to Google on the go when looking for a place to eat or an activity to do. In partnership with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, Discover Los Angeles created a mobile app to guide you through the City of Angels.
One of the most exciting things in the Discover L.A. app is a seasonally-themed scavenger hunt feature that gets users exploring the streets and discovering hidden gems. The first three people to complete the app’s first scavenger hunt, an ice cream crawl, will win. You have until June 23 to complete this delicious challenge.
“The Discover L.A. app is the first-of-its kind to utilize proprietary A.I. built to enhance the Los Angeles experience,” Don Skeoch, chief marketing officer of Discover Los Angeles, said in a press release. “Through smart technology, the app literally knows to serve up soup and indoor dining suggestions on cool days; the closest beaches and ice cream on warm days.”
Now that you know where you want to go and what you’re going to do, the question is, how will you get there? The Discover L.A. app has you covered. Tap on “get me there” and you’ll be provided with routes by bike, car and Metro. In fact, this app was funded in part by a grant from Metro, Los Angeles’ public bus and train system.
The Discover L.A. app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices.
