Planning your next trip, or looking for somewhere new to travel to? This site is packed with details about tourist attractions in cities around the world. Just click on a city, pick an attraction, and find photos, videos, links to blog posts, maps, and contact information. Or try the Stumble Travel feature, which brings up random videos of attractions you might not have looked for on your own, like the Mud Volcano (where you can take a mud bath!) in Cartagena, Columbia.
Cool Vacation Slideshows
Here’s a way to take sharing vacation pics to a whole new level. Just upload a few photos, and the site creates a very cool trip slideshow (with music!) for you to show your family and friends. It even includes a map of your travels and allows you to customize titles and captions. The site is free, fast, and easy. Once a slideshow is created, you can easily share it on Facebook, Twitter, or another social media site.
Healthy Home Cooking
The Meals Matter website helps you prepare healthy meals at home. This free site offers a variety of tools, including a grocery list, meal planner, nutrition planner, and cookbook. You can also take calcium and food personality quizzes to help you get on track. Visit the Nutrition & Healthy Living section to read up on nutrition and healthy living topics, or check out the Recipes & Meal Ideas section for quick meals and meal suggestions. How does Almond Chicken Dijon sound for dinner tonight?
Help With Finances
Financial management can be complicated, but there are good resources out there. This site is dedicated to financial literacy and education for all Americans. You will find tips on starting a new business, how to buy health insurance, how to prepare for retirement, and much more, including the new rules regarding credit cards and overdraft fees. Calculators, worksheets, and checklists make it easy to get your financial life in order.
Want To Volunteer?
A situation like this year’s Gulf oil spill reminds us that there are people in need of help—not just in disaster situations, but in everyday life. Whether you want to assist animals, youth, or the environment, this site can help you find ways to use your passion and knowledge to benefit others in your community. Just use the easy interface to search for opportunities. You can also post information if your organization needs volunteers.
And lastly, Heidi Klum!
