World Heritage List

Planning that next vacation? Tired of crowded theme parks? Got the “been there, done that” blues? Check out the World Heritage List, a site that alphabetically indexes nearly a 1,000 destinations in 157 countries from Afghanistan (maybe not this year!) to Zimbabwe. Here, users check out maps and photos, watch videos and read up on ways to get off the beaten path and into areas of “outstanding universal value” that reflect the world's cultural and natural diversity. Find a spot that whispers your name. And don't forget to send a postcard. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list.
