City Guides for Short Stays

The website of the British magazine Business Traveler has a series of quick-bite city guides to various cities around the world. Not at all comprehensive or detailed, the guides nonetheless list about half-a-dozen spots in each city, with a handy small map. These are, obviously, geared to business travelers who maybe have an afternoon free to explore, yet can be useful to anyone. U.S. cities currently covered include Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, and New York. There are more than 30 European cities currently covered, including London, Rome, Cork, Copenhagen, and many more. Around the rest of the world, the guides cover Tokyo, Seoul, Nairobi, and several other destinations. These will never replace Lonely Planet or Michelin, but if you are in any of these cities for business, or are on a very short stop-over on a longer trip, the guides might be just the ticket to lead you to a few interesting sights.
