Weekend Intelligence: November 13-14, 2010

November 13, 2010

I love the feeling that ratchets up when I know that travel is around the corner. No travel on your horizon? Single Occupancy is here to help! Weekend Intelligence is always full of good ideas and inspiration to help you satisfy your wanderlust.

  • The New York Times’ Frugal Traveler Seth Kugel on doing what he does best: traveling on a shoestring budget. This time he tackles doing away with the rental car and seeing the sights on two wheels. If you’re willing to strap on a bike helmet and some extra padding, it’s possible to do a large city like Los Angeles on $100 dollars a day.
  • If you’re like me—a whole lotta wanderlust with not a lot of cash—you’re always looking for the next great budget destination. Offer some hearty thanks to the folks over at LonelyPlanet.com for compiling this list of the “Top 10 Best Value Destinations for 2011.” Who knows? Maybe you’ll find inspiration for your next holiday.
  • The results are in for Travel+Leisure Magazine’s 2010 list of America’s Favorite Cities. Read how America’s most-loved metros stack up against each other in categories like food, nightlife, and culture. While I’m not a big advocate of “best of” lists and such, I found it an interesting and interactive read. (P.S. Savannah was ranked #3 for most attractive people. Watch out Southern boys—I’m coming for ya!)

Have a happy weekend!
