If you plan on visiting a new city in the near future, but don't feel like expensing out on another travel guide (and you just so happen to have an iPhone or iPod Touch), check out Schmap — a handy interactive site that provides maps and full-color guides for over 200 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Just visit Schmap on your iPhone or iPod Touch for virtual tours, and guides on everything from hotels to activities and dining.
What's neat about Schmap's iPhone functionality is its rotate 'n' map feature that enables you to turn your iPhone sideways to see places on a map and scroll a list as the map dynamically updates. Schmap works on both Macs and PCs and also has a desktop application. To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,
