Wikivoyage:Requested articles

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of articles that do not yet exist on Wikivoyage. Please add links here, and delete those that have a proper article that is not just a link or a blank template.

Or - why not start the article yourself?

Requests should meet the What is an article? policy. For example, a location should normally have somewhere to eat, somewhere to sleep and at least one thing to see or do to deserve an article. A travel topic or itinerary must be within the scope of Wikivoyage.

See also Wikivoyage:World cities which includes capitals and cities with a population of over 100,000 but don't yet have an article on Wikivoyage.






I might be able to take on this project in the near future. I took a trip there a few years ago and have a great deal of pictures, insight, etc. to show for it. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 15:30, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

United States of America[edit]

Might not be a good candidate for its own article per wiaa. It's a tiny town without anything to really see or do, and nowhere to sleep. Also, the Hasidic community there is not especially welcoming of outsiders. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 18:01, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

South America[edit]




Czech Republic[edit]

I'm unfamiliar with _Moravian_ Wallachia, but I presume that like the Romanian region of Wallachia, it would be spelled in English with a "W". Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:41, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
As quoted by Ikan Kekek it is Moravian Wallachia not Moravian Vallachia .SO i am changing V to W. It is a mountain region in Czech Republic. Sulthan90 (talk) 11:14, 26 March 2017 (UTC)



  • Sotkamo or Vuokatti. Vuokatti mainly, but in the other hand, Vuokatti could be part of the article of Sotkamo because it's kinda like an area in the municipality of Sotkamo. Now an outline and a redirect, with nothing really told about them yet.


Possibly it can be covered in Napoleonic Wars, though it's still an itinerary. When Napoleon was defeated for the first time, the Coalition exiled him on the island of Elba but he managed to escape after less than a year. He was then at large for 100 days, moving north secretly along paths in the French Alps nowadays known as Route Napoleon and gathered a new army which was finally beaten at Waterloo. ϒpsilon (talk) 17:03, 24 December 2015 (UTC)




  • Lądek-Zdrój - lots of beautiful photos in Commons; look at the category for the town. Coverage of Poland is really deficient in general on this site. There are numerous important destinations that have no article, and others, like Kłodzko, which based on what's on Commons, deserve significantly longer and more detailed articles with more images.



Travel topics[edit]

Reasons to travel[edit]



Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]

  • Bike share - while we currently have a small section in the article on cycling it unduly focuses on Germany and does not cover many of the new systems that have recently arisen
  • Bus travel in Mexico - probably the best and most extensive bus network in the world. spinning this of from the main Mexico#By bus_2 article would be a good idea imho. That way we can go into more detail while only leaving a brief overview in the main article
  • Canada without a car, similar to United States without a car
Another approach would be to include information about Canada and change the name of the article to "North America without a car" or, to be more specific and avoid confusion about whether to include Mexico, "The U.S. and Canada without a car". Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:27, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
I like the idea, but would prefer whether our "experiment" USA "works" - imho it's on a good path, but not quite "there" yet... Hobbitschuster (talk) 18:18, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Not really within our scope. Just because The Other Site has a particular travel topic doesn't mean we have to. --AndreCarrotflower (talk) 02:53, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Tour boats are missing, leaving a huge gap between cruise ships and boating/cruising on small craft. An outline on ferries was started, but it needs some love.
  • Overland travel in Africa — Africa brings a host of different troubles & issues when compared to overland travel just about anywhere else in the world. Such a page should include issues with fuel, vehicles (2WD vs 4x4 & also limited spare parts/service available for various brands), road conditions, road-side camping, and cover the many border issues present along the continent. This page should also cover some of the common routes in the various regions, but especially in regions difficult to traverse or where there are only a couple viable routes—such as the Sahara, east-west travel between coastal Libya and Zambia (basically there are no routes, but for the truly adventurous N'Djamena-Abeche-Khartoum or Yaounde-Bangui-Kampala are possible), and trans-continental travel down the west coast (there's really only one viable route between Gabon & Angola). A Cycling the Western Sahara itinerary now exists.
  • Trans-Sahara routes — Traveling across the Sahara is no doubt difficult and (often) dangerous. Having one page to cover all the different routes along with common modes of transport, border restrictions, and safety concerns would be very helpful in persons planning a grand overland trip across Africa and be much easier for overlanders than having to sift through info on (or which should be in) the pages of North Africa & Sahel countries. Could either be a page unto itself, or a section of the proposed Overland travel in Africa page
  • Cruising the Southern Ocean — While much of the content of this guide should be included in the "Get in" section of Antarctica, it would be nice to have a page written from the perspective of cruising to Antarctica, South Georgia Island, and even the French Southern and Antarctic Territories. Topics to include: types of cruises (small or large vessel & associated pros/cons), costs, packing list, various procedures/regulations (cleaning to prevent contamination, zodiac boat rides), typical activities (wildlife viewing, kayaking, station visits, helicopter flights), ships, overview of places visited (Antarctic peninsula, Ross Sea, South Georgia Is., Falkland Islands, Tierra del Fuego), and routes (from Ushuaia, Punta Arenas, or Australia/New Zealand).
  • Panama Canal by boat redlinks. Like the Suez Canal (which exists as Suez Route) it should have an article.
  • All-terrain vehicle redirects to Activities; the section there provides no useful info beyond links to a few random country-level articles.
  • Uber; distinctive enough to require an article in its own right
Ridesourcing/Ride hailing services now exists as an outline to cover Uber, Lyft and the like.


We have Art Deco architecture. It's annoying that Art deco architecture doesn't redirect unless it's written in the search window. Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:11, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I shall create this redirect. And it should be mentioned on the architecture page. I think my point still stands. Several eras are not covered at all and the eras we do cover are not all that well covered. Hobbitschuster (talk) 13:37, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Your point does stand. There indeed could be more coverage of architecture - not to mention painting and sculpture. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:19, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
w:Brutalist architecture. Powers (talk) 23:20, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
There are probably even enthusiasts for that... After all, when they constructed the Plattenbau (GDR style high rises) in the 1970s and 1980s they considered them to be the best thing since sliced bread and wanted to tear down places like Dresden-Neustadt (which - if you read the listings carefully - is now the most popular part of Dresden with most tourists, precisely because it wasn't torn down). And other epochs like the architecture of Al Andalus or the British-Indian architecture (touched upon in British Raj) are well worth a detour if not a trip... Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:51, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Raising my hand as a fan of Brutalism. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 02:41, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Burtalist architecture is what built the National Theatre on London's South Bank and the Barbican, both noted arts venues :) ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:26, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Other architecture red links moved from Architecture#Architectural styles:

These may not all be viable topics, but they didn't belong in that article. Another possible architectural topic:

Could be better covered, but that's down to people taking more time to develop that article. A lot of Gothic cathedrals are covered in the Gothic architecture article, though. Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:28, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
Would that be "Classical European art" or include art from Egypt and whatever is left in Mesopotamia after IS gets through with it? Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:45, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Some overlap with next-to-impossible destinations, which has already been featured, but is not an exact duplicate.
Industrial tourism addresses factory tours. We also have Industrial Britain, American Industry Tour, nuclear tourism, science tourism and the historical Industrialization of the United States.
Oh ok thanks. Maybe factory tours should be a redirect then? Until the industrial tourism page becomes so big that it needs to be split up. As far as countries go, Industrial Japan and Industrial Germany would be important to have too. Gizza (roam) 02:41, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
We have Industrial Heritage Trail (Route der Industriekultur) in Western Germany's Ruhr valley and a Bertha Benz Memorial Route as part of early automotive history, but nothing for the country as a whole. K7L (talk) 03:07, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Performance Magic, Requested because there are a small number of prop museums, and of course there are venues such as those in Vegas where the purpose of a trip is to see a specific illusionist. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:16, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Sikhism and Jainism, if not described as sub-topics of Hinduism
  • Silk; farming, manufacturing, tailoring and historical sites
  • Zoroastrianism
  • Baha'i Faith
  • Performance art — above we have a suggestion for a Performance magic. Would it be a good idea to have a "collection" article for performance art including theater, different music performances etc.
    • I think an article like this would be a good idea, but I don't think it should be called "Performance art", because I think that term usually refers to more conceptual art that is of interest to a fairly specific, narrow audience, rather than normal theatrical performances, concerts, etc. Maybe Performing arts? —Granger (talk · contribs) 20:07, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Exactly. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:17, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Historical travel[edit]

see also Talk:Historical travel#Requested articles
  • Château (though usually without the circumflex) is used in English, but the German word Schloss is not and, therefore, presumably shouldn't be in any titles in English-language Wikivoyage. Perhaps "Villas and Château" would cover the topic? Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:37, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Shouldn't that be "Villas and Châteaux" (plural)? K7L (talk) 22:49, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Of course. Typo on my part. Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:48, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I am not sure I like any of the proposed titles. But maybe that is just me having been ignorant for the longest time that the distinction Burg/Schloss (the former largely a defensive and the latter largely an ornamental residence of some blue blooded person) does in fact exist in English, even though the language of Shakespeare needed to make use of a very un-Anglo word for that. Hobbitschuster (talk) 00:13, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
  • German Reich; including German Empire, the Weimar Republic, and Nazi Germany
  • I'm not sure we want that kind of article, "pilgrimage" to the sites of the Wilhelms and - even worse - the Nazis tends to attract the wrong kind of people and we already have Holocaust remembrance Hobbitschuster (talk) 13:51, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
The German Reich was the name of Germany from 1871, so an article would include many venues from Imperial Germany, as well as the Weimar Republic. Nazi Germany existed for only 12 years, and many landmarks from those years have been torn down or disfigured. This article would not primarily be a ledger for Nazi pilgrimage. /Yvwv (talk) 14:00, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
I know that the Weimar Republic was also called the German Reich, but when hearing "German Reich" most people (including most Germans) think Wilhelm or Adolf. And the whole Bismarck, Wilhelm and Sedan BS is reactionary at best and "Nazism without Nazi symbols" at worst - people flying a Kaiserreich era flag mostly do so because the Nazi era symbols are mostly prohibited. Plus, the German Reich (under all three "arrangements" combined) only existed for 73 years (1871-1945), which will be surpassed by post-war Germany shortly and I'm not sure we want an article on that as a specific topic, either. Hobbitschuster (talk) 14:10, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
I have to agree with Hobbitschuster here. Not something we want to be seen as promoting, especially at this juncture in geopolitical history. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 21:53, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, we can revisit this in 150 years. However, perhaps a topic about the Prusso-German Empire could work, if there's call for it. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:10, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
Everything in the past is or soon will be history. Where do we draw the line between History and Nostalgia? Back in the 1950s there was huge nostalgia for the "simpler times" of the 1890s... Today there is nostalgia for the "suburban paradise" of the 1950s (though if you ask me it looks more like a nightmare, but that's neither here nor there). Point is: I see too much overlap with historical travel Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:23, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Nostalgia would stretch about 30-50 years back, for old people remembering their own childhood. Possibly we could follow up Industrialization in the United States with Cold War United States- /Yvwv (talk) 22:23, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
That should probably be "Post war era" as "Cold war" conjures up discussion specifically of nuclear tourism, bunkers, missile silos, the whole "better dead than red" thing instead of the entire post-WWII era as a whole. Any "history of..." articles which follow the pattern of the US topics (where Industrialization of the United States ends at WWII) would logically have that war and the post-war era as the next chapter. K7L (talk) 01:22, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
We now have a Post-war United States article. /Yvwv (talk) 16:16, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
See Cold War Europe for military and political destinations. We can also consider articles for British pop music and similar culture-themed articles. /Yvwv (talk) 11:54, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
  • I think you'd agree, that's an overbroad topic and will work better as subtopic articles. Would there be enough for an article about the 1848 Revolution? What about Spanish Civil War sites? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:34, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
  • oh for sure. I'd make the main article an overview. As for 1848 - I don't know. Hobbitschuster (talk) 09:12, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Fiction tourism[edit]


We have guide or near-guide articles for hockey, baseball and American football so it's surprising that this one still is a red link. ϒpsilon (talk) 20:04, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Site search results for NASCAR. This is a popular sport and definitely merits an article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:41, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Let's make a redlink for NASCAR, then. ϒpsilon (talk) 18:02, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
Maybe we can have a section somewhere in a ctiy article on her sister cities? Hobbitschuster (talk) 00:20, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Not really travel related. Wikipedia has enough trouble keeping the lists up to date. Powers (talk) 00:36, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Maybe change the existing twin town entry from disambiguation to travel topic and leave it at that? K7L (talk) 10:35, 15 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Travel selfies/selfies: As a subtopic of travel photography. A key component of travel among the social media generation.
    Is it taking selfies that is the main point, or should it be about cameras of smart phones and similar, in the same way as full systems are handled in their own article? If the former it should perhaps rather be part of a series about choosing how to compose your photos: how do you make your image of the Notre-Dame interesting – with the cathedral as a selfie background or otherwise.
    Good points. I was thinking of two things when I proposed this. 1. taking a high quality selfie - what background you should have, how you should take it including the angle, zoom, poses, etc. but also the tools so which smartphone or proper camera (I think modern cameras have selfie modes) and selfie sticks/drones. And 2. the safety issues with taking selfies, since there are sadly stupid people who put themselves in dangerous situations like standing at an edge of a cliff. I was thinking of a similar article to wildlife photography. These were some articles I found on other sites [3] [4] [5] [6] although some of theses article talk about taking photos when you're alone which overlaps but is not the same thing. Gizza (roam) 00:07, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Visiting pygmy settlements — the name "pygmy" is the commonly-used name (although technically a derogatory slur) for the short-statured people not of Bantu descent who live in isolated villages across Central Africa. This guide would provide an overview of locations to visit their settlements in the countries of Central Africa and general activities & accommodations when visiting along with how to reach them.
  • Water parks, subset of amusement parks
  • Water skiing / water-skiing
  • Winter in Canada, Winter in Russia, Winter in Mongolia and Winter in Alaska. Similar to Winter in the Nordic countries. Gizza (roam) 10:43, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
Started Winter in North America. /Yvwv (talk) 08:43, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Workout now redirects to physical fitness: Preparing for outdoor life, maintaining good physique during travel, and preventing fatigue during long-distance flights; as a complement to the sport article


  • Learning a language abroad — some overlap with—or maybe a subsection of—Studying abroad...this section would cover how to find good language programs, types of programs, length and advantages/disadvantages of length of study. It should also discuss pure language programs versus combining language studies/exercise with work, other studies (e.g. exchange programs) or vacation activities and how prior knowledge of the language influences the choices. Previously attempted at language tourism, which currently points to a single paragraph of travel activities.


  • Working holiday — currently redirects to one section of working abroad. Should cover the various work-holiday schemes available in countries like E.U., Australia, NZ, US. We have gap year travel, which may overlap slightly. There are many pitfalls by which itinerant workers may be exploited abroad.
  • WWOOFing — "Willing workers on organic farms", the WWOOF page is a redirect (after vfd discussion). There is a brief mention in Volunteer travel and a good article about agrotourism in general, but no topic page specifically about working on farms.


-Much of United States of America#Buy has been moved to Shopping in the United States.
  • Carpet shopping — Travelers encounter carpets for sale across the Middle East, Caucasus, Central Asia, & the Indian subcontinent. Carpets can vary dramatically in price and finding a good carpet can be tough for the inexperienced traveler. This guide should include background info on carpets in history, a discussion of the differences between regions, how to assess the quality of a carpet, and info relevant to the traveler considering purchasing a carpet (price, where to find the best deals, how to ship home, overview of customs issues & restrictions on export). There are currently small bits on carpets in Silk Road and at Turkmenistan#Rugs, perhaps other articles.
  • Dog adoption - general advice how to find serious agents abroad
  • Fashion - In other words where to purchase something special, as opposed to the practical day to day clothing the traveller packs for a trip away. As discussed in the travellers pub, there are a number of centers globally which are places specifically known for their connection with fashion. An article about buying a Kimono is already present. I've put this under Buy as I felt that this would be where the focus of a topic would be. There may be some overlap with See/Do, given that a topic on Fashion could also cover Costume History. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:24, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
    • We can start building on the Clothing artilce. /Yvwv (talk) 23:49, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Jewellery shopping/Jewelry shopping. Buying niche gemstones, etc. not common in your hometown or country and where you lack experience and specialist knowledge. Tips on how to assess and get the highest quality for the best price.
  • Wool - traditional craft of woolen clothing, and exclusive fabrics such as merino, alpacca and camel hair


What about dinner cruises though? Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:37, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Roadside diners are technically not fast food as they offer table service, but occupy a price point between a fast-food joint and a standard restaurant.
And they represent a niche in North American cuisine that, while rarely recognized as such, is actually quite distinct. And many of them are notable for quirky midcentury architecture/interior design. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 19:32, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
We have an article on Truck stops, perhaps the scope of this (at the moment rather short) article could be expanded to include roadside diners and other places to eat catering to car and bus travelers. ϒpsilon (talk) 04:46, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
You might find the Roadfood website a useful source of information about some of these. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:12, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Cuisine articles by country or supra-national region, as these are probably what travellers look for:

Way too broad a topic and almost smacks of ethnocentrism to me. Would you suggest a "Cuisines of Asia" or "Cuisines of Europe" article? Africa is a vast continent with great variety. What would hold this kind of article together? Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:09, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia describes Wikipedia:African cuisine by sub-region. Probably the North African cuisine, West African cuisine, East African cuisine and Southern African cuisine would be useful articles. /Yvwv (talk) 13:28, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

A few cuisine types are not tied to a single region:




Stay healthy[edit]

  • Food safety — currently redirects to stay healthy, should discuss safe handling of food & various precautions...some overlap with Infectious diseases#Water (or contaminated food) and #Food and Travellers' diarrhea
  • Medications — discuss the issues surrounding taking, using, and possibly obtaining prescription medications while abroad. Topics to discuss: taking prescription abroad (standard format? letter from doctor?), legal issues (will immigration recognize foreign prescription; what about cases where a freely-available medication is taken across the border to a county where it is only available by prescription; what about more restrictive medications like opiates or stimulants?), how to obtain a medication with a prescription while abroad (need to see foreign doctor to obtain locally-recognizable Rx? Will embassy doctors help when in a foreign country with a language barrier?), any concerns about quality (like counterfeit medications). Touched on at Travel health and First aid kit for travellers
  • Immunization is a redirect, the topic is mentioned (as "vaccination") in stay healthy
  • Travelling with diabetesTravelling with high blood pressure was recently created and while we probably shouldn't have articles for each and every illness, diabetes is fairly common and requires travellers to take into consideration many things (meals, meal times, carrying medicine and syringes and other equipment etc.).
  • Air pollutionSevere weather has some words about smog; travellers need advice for how to survive air pollution in general
I would second the creation of a section at least. UK Met office sometimes issues Air Quality warnings, and Los Angles, California used to be well known for smog comments. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:31, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Stay safe[edit]

  • Avalanches redirects to snow safety, an outline.
  • Corruption / bribes — Currently both redirect (along with trouble with authorities) to Stay safe. Authority trouble was deleted, but deserves a new chance. A traveller could use advice how to deal with corruption, police brutality, unlawful detention, or charges of crime.
  • While an article on marijuana has been started at cannabis, drugs merely disambiguates and smoking redirects to tobacco.
  • Fire safety in hotels and on campgrounds; we have a page on wildfires only.
  • Sea piracy is mentioned in a few currently-affected or historic destinations, but as a hazard it broadly affects entire regions (Somalia in particular has spread its pirates hundreds of miles) and may therefore be best as a travel topic.
  • Touts — "special price only for you my friend...", perhaps it'd be good to have a page with some tactics for a first-time visitor to e.g. Tangier how to lose them before you lose your nerves. Ignoring touts doesn't always help or may not be possible.
  • Upland terrain - An article on Avalanches is mentioned previously here, but a more general stay safe article aimed at mountainous and upland terrain should be considered, some overlap with Altitude Sickness and Cold weather. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:24, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Cyclones , Severe weather has a long section on Cyclones and Hurricanes, which could be split out. Given that other severe weather events were split out of this article, an extended article on Cyclones should be considered. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:26, 19 September 2017 (UTC)




  • Uganda Railway — (w:Uganda Railway) A tropical version of the Transsib, the railway was built a century ago in the middle of nowhere with much trouble. It was one of the main tourist lines in East Africa when completed. While trains nowadays only run on a part of this railway, it could still make for an interesting itinerary. ϒpsilon (talk) 16:41, 19 July 2016 (UTC)



If Erie Canal is allowed, why wouldn't Kiel Canal be? -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 16:54, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
I don't know. I have long given up on either understanding or reforming the bodies of water policy. At this point the easiest thing seems to be not to have a bodies of water policy at all Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:40, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Gastarbeiterroute (or any other term, though this seems to be the most commonly used German term) for what en-wp covers here (though check out de-WP if you read German at all) - the route on which migrant workers from Southeast Europe and Anatolia traveled to the latter region from Germany and Austria
  • Brenner Pass - one of the principal historic transalpine routes; currently a w:Brenner Base Tunnel is under construction relieving the traditional route of much of its essential role.
  • Via Alpina
  • The Ridgeway (England), a UK national trail of some 87 km in length, I'm considering attempting to draft this in my userspace at some point, but if someone wants to start an itinerary separately, I've no objections. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:55, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Großglockner Hochalpenstrasse (some variant spellings are currently redirects; one of which was merged into High Tauern National Park back in 2007); one of the most famous high alpine roads and a challenge for both motorists and cyclists.
  • Scotch whisky route - already a very nice article coming together en français, which could be translated. --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 18:39, 10 April 2018 (UTC)

Middle East[edit]

North America[edit]

I like this idea a lot. Of course, a West Coast hip hop tour (Compton, Long Beach, South Central L.A. as well as Oakland) would also be de rigueur, as well as a Dirty South hip hop tour (Miami, Atlanta, etc.) -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 17:58, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
United States National Parks might be a good place to put National Heritage Areas, but that article first needs to be reorganized (and possibly split up?) -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 05:17, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Portlandia Tour, for the comedy series set in Portland (Oregon)
  • Boston Post Road - an old Amerindian trail between Boston and New York City improved by early U.S. colonists to facilitate mail delivery. Now serves as the main street of many of the towns between those two cities, where many buildings from the Colonial and Revolutionary eras still stand (along with the many of the mileposts placed along the route in the 18th Century). Large portions of the route are listed in the National Register of Historic Places and/or as National Historic Landmarks.
The Lower Post Road, which connects the Bronx with Providence, RI, is part of US Route 1. I suppose you want to cover the Upper Post Road? Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:04, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
1) Ideally we would cover all three of them. Some information for the Lower Post Road might be adapted from the US Route 1 article, but we'd want to place special emphasis on the Colonial- and Revolutionary-era historical relics you'll see along the way, rather than merely giving a generalized description of the route.
2) How is an article like US Route 1 allowable per policy anyway? We're not supposed to have articles on roads, and US-1 not particularly well-known as a tourist itinerary in its own right, like Route 66 and the Lincoln Highway are.
-- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 04:20, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Why not? Driving on Route 1 gives the driver and passenger an experience of what a main road used to be like around 60-100 years ago. You drive through a lot of centers of towns, and also through countryside and old-fashioned strip malls - some of them in the center of the highway in New Jersey. But you probably know that, since you want to have an article about part of Route 1. Also, see Talk:U.S. Highway 1. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:07, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
That's kind of a stretch, but seeing as I'm not a huge fan of the anti-"road article" policy to begin with, I'll leave it alone. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 05:38, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Looks like the U.S. cable network C-SPAN already did something like this, but with a focus on the political philosophies he discussed in his book rather than being geared toward travellers. This ought to sharply reduce the amount of research necessary to determine what route he took. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:01, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
From Plymouth to Hampton Roads is an itinerary of the north-east, where more historical destinations can be inserted. /Yvwv (talk) 17:54, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Frankly, "driving through somewhere as quickly as possible" strikes me as almost antithetical to the concept of travel as defined on this site. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:56, 29 August 2017 (UTC)


South America[edit]

Central America[edit]

  • Central America by bike - lots of people seem to tour all or part of Central America by bike. This article could focus on the "obvious" route mostly along Carreterra Panamericana, but also suggest deviations, side trips or alternative routes. Information on whether to bring or buy a bike and the potential resale value as well as the availability of competent repair personnel and spare parts would also be much appreciated. Information on which roads to avoid and how to behave in traffic as well as legalities and practicalities on border crossing and ferry trips can't do no harm either

Travel topics are probably too heterogeneous and freeform in structure for a one-size-fits-all help page to be of much use. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 17:15, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
It could at least give pointers. We do have guidelines that affect travel topics, and one could give good examples in different categories as inspiration. --LPfi (talk) 11:44, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
