What's new  - Us

This site is the result of reviewing thousands of web sites and hundreds of travel books and brochures.  Some of the information is old, some incomplete, some just wrong.  We've done our best, but we need your help and  cooperation.  Send us an e-mail with any corrections, additions, or just plain changes. 

There is no cost for a listing on our site, so if we've missed an attraction or activity, let us know, and we'll list it as soon as we can.
