Last year, we switched to a digital system to make prize earning easier for you. No more worrying about forgetting your passport and no more dropping it off at the Tourist Council to earn prizes. This year we've launched a new and improved app! Now, you can simply download the app and check in using QR access codes. Once you visit a location, ask your server for their unique access code to earn that location on the app. They'll give you a QR code to scan. Each time you complete a level, your information will automatically be saved. It's that easy! Download it NOW to get started!
Map out your flight path using the Makers Trail Guide or our free app. Printed maps will be available at participating hotels and Makers Trail locations. Then, start visiting each location. Each destination has a distinct personality and serves specialties to showcase each maker's craftsmanship. Order a flight so you can taste more!
