Schmap is a travel site that features easy-to-use maps and user-contributed information about places you want to visit.

(I also love that the top of the plug is covered in sawdust in the photo. Is that a nice bit of staging, or did they just snap a photo of one in-use?)
Thanks to Cool Tools for the link.
