Overview

           
What a sunset! Wish you were here.We have hand-selected some of the best travel guides on the web whether or not they are well-known. We include some of the larger travel agencies that have destination information even if they only cover popular destinations.   We also include well-known paperback travel guides and link you to where you can buy their guides at Amazon.com, as well as, linking you to the travel guides own website if they have one if you prefer to buy directly from them.  Also most printed travel guide series have free, online travel information for the destinations they cover in their books but without going into a lot of detail. After all they would like you to buy their guide books.  Remember, printed guides don't require batteries or access to the Internet to use them. What a wonderful innovation!  Thank you Gutenberg for the invention that allowed for mass-produced, printed pages.

Some Gold Star Sites.
* * * These are websites we have found that are especially appealing for their breath of coverage, user interface, interesting travel attitude or for some other worthwhile quality. If you are a world traveler, for a special treat, try the SuperTravelNet.com website.  This is how you dreamed a world travel website should be navigated.

Travel Guide Reviews. 
Here are some websites that have reviews of travel guidebook series and websites: Book Reviews: Kingwood College Library, Independent Traveler.com Website Reviews: ConsumerSearch, Thegoodwebguide.
