http://www.greenroutes.org/ offered some interesting places to check out the next time I stravel up to Duluth or to the Twin Cities. The nearest green location on the map from where I am is in New Ulm at Morgan Creek Vineyards (I've been there and it IS neat!).
http://www.igougo.com/ I'd visit this site again if looking for info on places I'm travelling - would easily choose it over http://www.boo.com/.
http://www.mapness.com/ I am now debating between using mapness or MyGoogleMaps to create a mashup of places I visited on my honeymoon. (There were a lot of places!) Mapness lacks some of the bells and whistles that MyGoogleMaps does, so I think I will keep to that but will keep Mapness in mind.
http://mykugelhopf.ch/ I could easily surf My Kugelhopf for quite a while. The pictures are great!
Some of my favorite travel sites:
www.exploreminnesota/myfavoriteminessota/ - Explore Minnesota is awesome but making it even better is My Favorite Minnesota - people can make lists of their favorite places and share them - I've found some great lesser known places to go visit that are much closer to me. Very helpful and fun!
*ExploreMinnesota is one I regularly recommend to patrons who are surfing OR purposefully searching for Minnesota travel information. It is a fabulous site with so many tools!!!
Also I've found Babelfish useful when it comes to translating http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ ...haven't had a chance to travel and use it since I haven't gone far lately but I do use it now and then.
I also enjoy searching based on a location and "food blog" - you never know what you'll find. Half of the memories of a trip is the great food you ate. Mm, like the pasties I had up at Two Harbors at Vanilla Bean.
