Late yesterday we launched our new guide to the best places to visit in Chicago
Frank Lloyd Wright, the famous architect, once said, “Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful city left in the word.” We think Chicago is gorgeous and full of fun attractions. While creating the ThereArePlaces guide we revisited many of the places we used to frequent when we lived in Chicago and decided that the city is better than ever.
Chicago’s geographical setting is sublimely beautiful. Chicago’s planners clearly have spent a lot of time figuring out how to make the city work and they have created a masterpiece. Chicago is a wonderful place for a family vacation, offering every age group a variety of attractions that they will find appealing.
Take a look, and book your tickets, as our Chicago guide is waiting for you.
On Saturday,March 19, 2011 ThereArePlaces launched its new, concise but multi-paged guide to the Best Places to Visit in New York. In addition, we are working on guides to Chicago and San Francisco and have another two U.S.city-guides in planning. All will be released in the first half of this year.
Our New York Guide covers our recommendations for the thirty best places to visit in New York City. We provide details on each attraction and link to the official website, when there is one (in case you have an interest in learning additional information). In addition, we show the location of each attraction with a marker on a custom built map utilizing a map base from Google, and have sprinkled the Guide with some excellent photographs showing what you can expect to see when you visit New York.
New York is a phenomenal place to visit and often produces a wide range of emotions in each visitor. Americans are justifiably proud of the values represented by the Statue of Liberty and immensely saddened the loss of life at nearby Ground-Zero, soon to be the home of the National 9/11 Memorial. Times Square, Central Park and the Empire State Building are just the beginning of an exploration of some of the most famous structures and attractions in the United States, and, perhaps, the world. New York has something for everyone and we think you will find that the ThereArePlaces Guide to New York is a great way to explore the Big Apple in preparation for your next visit.

ThereArePlaces has added a travel guide to Israel to our collection of guides on the best places to visit around the world. Our new guide covers Israel’s major cities (Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa) its archaeological wonders (Caesarea, Herodium, Masada, Beit Shean) and the pilgrimage sites around the country of interest to many Christians (Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth and sites surrounding the Sea of Galilee).
We have included a separate guide to Jerusalem that is focused on the walled, Old City and its many wonders (the Dome of the Rock, the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, etc), as well as several attractions outside of the Old City, including the Mount of Olives, the Kidron Valley and Yad Vashem.
Israel is the heart of the Holy Land and of great historic significance. We also realize that travel to Israel may not appeal to everyone. However, even if you never plan to travel in Israel, we think that reading our guide might be of interest to you and hope you will take a look when you have time.
