Which travel and reference sites do you use?
Of the four big travel and reference sites, which do you use the most/like the most? The four big ones are: Fodor's, Rough Guides, Frommer's and Lonely Planet. Have you decided to visit a place based on the recommendation of one of these guides? We generally use personal references when deciding where to visit but use sites such as these to decide the specifics of where to stay or what to see in the area.
I like all four of these sites and use them as reference points for a lot of my travel writing as well, but my favorite one is Rough Guides which I find to be very detailed, but also very short and sweet in its information. I don't want to know every facet of history of the place I am going to, just enough to get me hooked on to going there and that's it.
