DC Fly-by

Very cool intereactive aerial map of Washington DC. The site gives a great overview of the layout of the city, and it lets you click on icons and sites to see details in pop up windows. Great for kids.

NYWiki.com

nywiki

I've blogged here before about "wikis," the weird new kind of open web databases that any reader can contribute to, notably WikiTravel. Well, now there is also NYWiki. If you are curious about minutia about NY, go check it out (though it's only a month old, so content should grow considerably in the coming weeks and month). If you know something about NY you want to contribute, by all means, go log in and have at it.

Travel Resources for Women

Thought it would be useful to track down some useful travel resources especially for women. So far, I have found only these:

  • Adventure Divas - "Television and web media that charts the growing wide, wide world of divadom"

  • City Women - "Local city guides for women"

  • Journey Woman - "An online travel resource just for women"

  • Let's Go Girl - "The first girl-tested, girl-approved travel guide to the United States & beyond"
I'm sure there must be others. If you have some to recommend, please do in the Comments feature of this post and I'll update. Thanks.

Been there? Done that? Get the t-shirt!

UPDATE:
In case you don't get the joke or are otherwise of sensitive constitution, this is PG-13 humor!

We just discovered an interesting site, HotelChatter, a blog-like site focused specifically on the hotel industry. We'll be keeping an eye on this going forward and see what good story ideas we can steal from them.
