Weather for your DestinationThrough my travels I have found that weather patterns vary considerably from region to region. Avoid disappointments by planning around cold, hot, rainy or hurricane seasons. Check out the weather network.
Enter the city you are planning to visit and click "Statistics" in the left hand margin. You will find monthly averages for temperature and precipitation.
Map out your DestinationGoogle Maps offers a great online mapping tool that lets you zoom right into your location. Just enter a city or an individual address (limited to North America for the most part - for now).
Once you find what you want, one click can give you a cool satellite image or a hybrid (satellite image overlaid by a map).
