TravelStorys is a free app that uses your location to share authentic stories by locally sourced audio guides. Drive, walk, bike, or paddle along a tour route. Stories about history, wildlife, culture, and more will automatically play as you pass by so you can travel at your own pace.Start a tour and let our technology do the rest. Less like an app and more like a compass, TravelStorys works offline and inside a pocket. Download a tour, hit the play button, and focus on your surroundings instead of your device.

There are three trails, indicated by green (handicap accessible, paved trail), yellow (relatively flat, unpaved trail), or red (more challenging, uphill trail) icons. Click an icon to view the story and pictures, and make sure your audio is on. Click the play button to hear the story, and click the images to read their captions. We hope you are inspired!

The Healing Trails – Greenway Meadows tour was first introduced in conjunction with the Healing Trails art exhibition at the Johnson Education Center. Click here to read more.
The Abbott Marshlands is composed of 3,000 acres of wetlands and uplands located on the western edge of central New Jersey just below Trenton. The diverse habitats – freshwater tidal and non-tidal marshes and swamps, ponds, and woodlands – are home to many kinds of plants and animals, as well as several historic sites.
D&R Greenway has been active in protecting the Abbott Marshlands for 25 years. Working with partners, we were instrumental in establishing Mercer County’s Tulpehaking Nature Center, where you can learn about the archaeological, historic, and natural treasures of the Marsh. Visit the Marsh website or TravelStorys GPS to learn more about this local treasure, or click here to view an aerial video of the Marsh.
