Best Traveler's Information Websites - please add your favorites

Jump to last reply

I do a lot of planning before I go on a trip. These are some of the websites I consult to gather information about the countries I will be visiting. I tried to include everything I could think of. I especially like to listen to the radio and read the newspaper in English before I go. I am still missing a good website for local events and festivals. I also need more local street map websites. Please, please, please add your favorite websites to the list!
