For the past year, in addition to our daily magazine duties, Traveler staffers have been busy working on a huge Web project called Places of a Lifetime. And this week, the last of the 50 cities went live on National Geographic's People and Places website (allowing us to all collectively breathe a sigh of relief).
But this is great news for our readers, as the site offers an expansive tour of 50 cities throughout the world. Each city has photo galleries, videos, a quiz, walking tours, best ofs (hotels, restaurants, nightlife, entertainment, must-dos, and festivals), travel and cultural tips, recipes, a shopping guide, local music, movies, and more! It's a perfect primer before heading out, or for inspiring where you'll head next. Please take a look, and spread the word!
Check out the complete list of cities after the jump:
