“Travel guides for major tourist destinations are a dime a dozen on the Internet. We focus on the not-so-major destinations… the true undiscovered gems!” says the new website, 511Destinations.com.
511destinations.com is a different kind of travel guide. While most vacation guides on the Internet concentrate on the major tourist destinations, this new website presents smaller market and off the beaten path destinations… with a twist.
Rather than being bombarded with local information to sift thru, each 511destination is a snapshot. Where to stay, eat, go and how to get around are the basics, presented in a clean, well designed layout with eye-catching graphics and great functionality.
What’s more, users are encouraged to build their own destination guide simply by submitting a brief overview. Right now, there are no limits. You can be a proud resident that wants to tell the world about your town, a traveler that’s itching to share a destination they’ve discovered, or a business looking to promote themselves via a little local information.
It’s a great little website loaded with information that you often just can’t find anywhere else. 511destinations.com is also built to accommodate viewing on smartphones and mobile devices!Read More

A2Z Traveler bills itself as “The Ultimate Travel-Only Search Engine and Directory” and they are well on their way to becoming that. When we visited, they had accumulated “more than 65,000 of the very best travel websites from around the world.” in their directory, which is supplemented with results from the DMOZ project.
Searching for travel-related goods and services has become one of the principal uses of the Internet and, considering that volume, it’s logical that travel-only search engines and directories would serve that market. A2Z Traveler does that very well.
The website design is top rate and uses pastel colors give you that informal, travel and vacation feel. While the navigation system is quite detailed, it manages to remain simple and intuitive. Graphics are well incorporated and only used to enhance navigation, not overpower it.
While the directory and search features are the principal components of this website, it successfully supplements them with targeted topics of specialty travel and/or seasonal links. “Shortcuts” to air travel, cruising, destinations and highway travel are just a few. When we visited the site in February, their “Trip Planning Toolbox” offered Top 10 links to Ski Resorts and Cruise Destinations. Season specific travel content is an excellent feature.
While this website is ad-supported, advertising is minimal and the majority of ads are related to travel.
A2Z Traveler earned 5 stars. It’s well designed, content rich and a great resource for travelers.
