Armchair Traveler: A View on Cities

Hanging out with some public art in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle.

The last great city we visited was Seattle in 2010, so I’m getting excited about our upcoming visit to Vancouver, BC. In searching for some photos to gain my bearings on the city’s sights, I stumbled upon the website A View on Cities.

I hope you’re prepared to add to your bucket list. Mine is already so overwhelming that the discovery of this site actually caused a slight amount of panic. I mean, I’d heard a million times that Prague is a “must-see” destination. But once I clicked through these photos at A View on Cities, I now know that it is. And so there it goes, onto the bucket list. One more place I now long to visit. The photo library takes viewers on a virtual tour, more or less, of the world’s great cities. I haven’t yet been able to bring myself to look at many of them. Just like watching the Cooking Channel makes me want to eat, eat, eat, this web site also makes me hungry, in a different way.

Want to see what the top attractions are in Rome? Or whether Munich is a city where you’d like to wander the streets? Need a map of attractions so you can plan your route and find the best location for lodging?

It’s all there, beckoning you to while away a few hours clicking through and dreaming up future vacations you may or may not take. Take a look, and happy virtual travels!
