Google City Tours

Google labs has launched a neat new feature called City Tours.  The idea is similar to other sites (like Microsoft’s BING!) in that you can enter in a destination and the site will give you a bunch of things to do there.  What’s nice is you get it all laid out on Google Maps, with travel times by foot and the estimated visit time.  The site tries to give you a couple of days worth of stuff, but it only has so much material in its databases.  That’s why the feature includes some crowd sourcing so the public can add more attractions.  I punched in San Diego for our upcoming UC trip and found a couple of places that might be worth checking out!
