    Gimme some cool websites that will not only be useful to plan a trip/destination, but will also be good for my inner Walter Mitty fantasies. I might never make it to some of these places, but I’m sure that it wouldn't hurt to check them out while I look busy at my desk at work...

    Excellent idea! Of course there's Horizons Unlimited, various travel guide sites, and many others. But let's not copy their content here, just give us the links and maybe a short description.
