Wikivoyage:Requested articles

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.

    According to Wikipedia, it has a population of more than 24,000 now. Seems, though, that in the U.S. there's nowhere else like it, so maybe it would be worth an article.

  • 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

We have Chess, Go and Xiangqi. Reenactment and LARP is somewhat related. Pashley (talk) 03:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • European capital of culture on the one hand "event travel" like the Olympics or World Cup on the other hand the EU explicitly requires long term effects, so even visiting a former capital of culture can lead to related discoveries
  • Toplessness (common destinations for women who practice female toplessness) - In some parts of the world, many women have to deal with the fact that although female toplessness is commonly practiced in public places like beaches, swimming pools or even parks, often there is a lack of information in regards to the official status of some of these places, meaning that in many cases some women practice topless sunbathing (de facto) without really knowing if this act is allowed or even tolerated (de jure) in a determined region. Indeed, most of these women feel obliged to practice toplessness in a discreet manner to avoid confusion and unwanted sights. Others decide to travel for long distances to reach a more isolated place (such as a remote beach) where topless sunbathing can be done (at least de facto) without so much worries. Not to mention that in some occasions a few women have had problems with the police and other authorities mainly because these women don't know the official status of these places, as I said above. With all of this in mind, here I bring a proposition of an article whose focus should be on what are the areas around the world where female toplessness is more commonly practiced and what's the status (if known, de jure or at least de facto) of these areas, as well as the best destinations for women who take out the top (and don't want to worry a lot). Thanks in advance.
    I think an article telling about laws in every jurisdiction will quickly get unwieldy, and additionally, practices vary in many jurisdictions. I also don't know whether toplessness is the thing. Can you have just a bikini at the beach? In many places you are supposed to have at least a T-shirt over your bath suit, or even to wear a burqini (hmm, is there any beach where those are the common swimwear?). I think the practises are better handled in Cope or in a paragraph on beaches in Do for countries or regions known as beach destinations (and in beach listings where practises vary from one beach to the other). Or, if people do choose destination based on the possibility to sunbath topless without issues, that aspect could have a section in Beaches (in addition to the less focused discussion in the country and region articles). –LPfi (talk) 15:38, 21 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Working in the European Union
    Is this for EU/EEA citizens or people from elsewhere? The issues are very different. For EU citizens you don't need work permits, but you may need recognised certification, which isn't standardised in all sectors, and you should consider effects on social security, taxes etc. People from elsewhere need a country-specific work permit and I don't know how much general stuff there is to told. –LPfi (talk) 15:42, 21 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Travel considerations for specific groups edit

  • Freelance journalism isn't covered, although we have working abroad and travel writing.
    I think we should expand on the topic in Travel writing before starting an article, unless it can be made usable from the start. –LPfi (talk) 12:28, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    There is a legal difference between travel writing and journalism. For example, USA citizens can only travel to Cuba for specific covered reasons, one of those being for the purpose of journalism. USA Freedom of the Press though also means that you do not have to work for an established news agency in order to be a journalist. For example, if you have a blog that reports on different relevant news-worthy topics, then you can legally refer to yourself as an independent or freelance journalist and gain entry to Cuba, as long as the purpose of your trip is for news reporting on your blog as an independent journalist. This is different from general travel writing but can otherwise overlap. Nicole Sharp (talk) 13:59, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    That tips would be very relevant for the blogger (or whomever), who doesn't feel as being a journalist but could turn into one for visiting that country. Freelance journalism could be added to the present Books, Guidebooks, Magazines and Blogging. I don't see anything in the current article that wouldn't apply to freelance journalists. –LPfi (talk) 14:06, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I don't think that "how to become an independent or freelance journalist" is a relevant topic for Wikivoyage though. That is a better topic for Wikiversity or Wikibooks instead. Go to Wikiversity first to learn how to become an independent journalist and then return to Wikivoyage to learn how to use your new status as an independent journalist to access travel locations that may otherwise be inaccessible such as Cuba and some USA government facilities (for example you can cite your blog in order to request press credentials to access the White House or a NASA rocket launch). However, not all countries have the same Freedom of the Press as the USA and may not recognize someone as a journalist simply because they are reporting news on a personal blog instead of working for an established news agency. Nicole Sharp (talk) 14:13, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Me neither. But journalism could be added to the list of different kinds of travel writing you could make money on. If you happen to be a journalist, or have the needed skills, then you could use that option. Compare with what is said about the other kinds of writing; we don't teach anybody to be a book writer either, we just list a few things to consider if you might want to be one. –LPfi (talk) 06:03, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Youth travel for travellers at age 15-26. When can youth discounts be expected? When is age limit an issue? (Many 20-year old Europeans are surprised that they cannot drink in the United States)
    I like the idea of having something specific like this given that the two preexisting articles don't necessarily apply to all minor travel situations. I'd be happy to use my own experiences as well :) --MewMewMadness (talk) 17:05, 15 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    We have Working holiday and Gap year travel.
    Which cover some aspects. However, I don't think age limits and youth discounts should be handled in any depth in those two; a separate article sounds like a good idea. A few titbits can be had also from Female travellers, Hostels and Studying abroad. –LPfi (talk) 12:28, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Erasmus program / Studying in the European Union
  • Couple travel - not necessarily honeymoon travel
    Couples can travel for any reason and I think they are reasonably well catered for anywhere (double rooms are standard at hotels, for one). Do you have any specific issues in mind? –LPfi (talk) 12:28, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Adults-only travel destinations are a broad category which may need to be broken into smaller pieces. This might be "childfree" B&B's for those looking for peace and quiet, "couples-only resorts" for those looking to be alone together, or "topless"/"clothing optional"/"nude" activities which aren't appropriate for children (we already have "family-friendly" nudism at Naturism). There are also age restrictions (or restrictions against single people) with swingers travel, swingers cruises, swingers resorts and gender restrictions on venues like the "gay campground" or "lesbian resort" (we have LGBT travel, but it has no #Sleep section).
  • Travel as a non-binary individual - We already have LGBT Travel, but coverage of travel issues, non-binary individuals encounter could be expanded. Ideally it should include advice on places that non-binary indviduals may want to avoid (For example, In some destinations, there are bars and clubs that may seem neutral to non-binary individuals, but where those indviduals might get mistaken for potential sex partners for example.)
    The issues could indeed be expanded on in LGBT travel, but I think they very much go hand in hand, so I don't think we should have a separate article. However, if you think the format of the existing article makes it difficult to expand, feel free to create the separate article (or a draft) and other people might be able to merge the two to something better. The specific issue, to be seen as a potential sex partner, is not restricted to the non-binary – does it differ from unwanted attention towards cis women (or even heterosexual non-trans men?) –LPfi (talk) 12:28, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Vehicle delivery — Various schemes used by snowbirds to transport vehicles cross-country, from w:Auto Train to auto transporters and drive-away companies (some hire chauffeurs to drive the vehicle [including RV's, lorries and buses], some match vehicles to other travellers heading the same way, some haul motorcars and large-truck cabs using tractor-trailer rigs or car carriers). [1][2] is an overview.
  • Marinas, boat rental, houseboats — we have a Marina article but it's a useless skeleton about some town in California. We have cruising on small craft but not sailing per se.
  • The cruise ship article focuses on ocean cruising and ships. A parallel article (to be developed) would focus on river boat and barge canal cruising. River boats and barges offer more in-depth, close-up looks at many countries in their interiors.
  • Entering the United States as the section in United States is getting bloated

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".

I don't think we should do "North America without a car". "United States without a car" covers enough different regions, let alone one article for "getting around without a car" that stretches from Panama to the Yukon. IMO "Canada without a car" should be a separate article. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:25, 26 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • 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.
    River boat and barge canal cruising are suggested above in Get in and Dinner cruises in Eat/drink. I think Tour boats could cover most of these. –LPfi (talk) 09:14, 11 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • 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.
    To make such article interesting would be to include information of places along canal (viewing spots, national parks, etc) that are accessible by road(s) which run parallel to the canal (mainly on the east side) between Panama City and Colon. There are also secondary roads on the west side (connecting Colon to Cuipo via Gatun) that offer better views of the Gatun Lake. There's also a once daily train that connects Panama Albrook Station to Colon too.
    If the article is on Panama canal by boat I don't see why roadside attractions are essential. Of course, there may be more people travelling along the roads than along the canal. The focus could be on either or both. The article Suez Route is a stub, not a good model. –LPfi (talk) 08:14, 11 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Canals currently redirect to waterways:
    • Inland waterways in the United Kingdom, currently a stub, these are rather different from their European counterparts (and a lot smaller in some instances!). If there's a really interested party, specific waterways are probably best done as itineraries, (especially longer ones like the River Thames or Grand Union Canal (England) ) ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:02, 28 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • European inland waterways. There is a section "Rivers and Canals of Europe" in Waterways, but I think a proper article should have a structure hard to shoehorn into that section. The scope would be the waterways covered by the CEVNI regulations, with a short mention of the Kiel Canal and other special cases. This is an extensive waterway system. The regulations are uniform enough and the interconnections many enough that handling them in one article would be useful. The article would be linked from individual waterway itineraries.
  • Rail travel in Israel given the political commitment to expanding the network and strong passenger growth as well as the pervasiveness of sherut, Egged and hitchhiking in other guides, we could get a USP by improving our coverage there as well as filling a rather widening gap in coverage. Hobbitschuster (talk) 21:24, 5 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Definitely an article that would help our efforts to make railroads great again. So yes, Hobbitschuster, is there anyone on Wikivoyage who at least has a decent knowledge of Israel's rail network? Selfie City (talk) 22:15, 12 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We currently have Ferries in the Mediterranean, which was nominated for vfd in 2018 and was kept. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 21:49, 29 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ferry lines are (to my understanding) considerably more scarce than for instance in Europe or the archipelagoes of Southeast Asia, but as some exist, I'd be surprised if there aren't a few more of them. And because they're so scarce it could be useful for independent travelers planning an island-hopping voyage to have an overview of where they can find such ferries. Of course, if there are extremely few of them, it's probably best to collect them in Caribbean#By_boat_2 and make this a redirect. ϒpsilon (talk) 21:17, 21 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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...

  • Religion in East Asia; preferrably covered in one article, as Buddhism is usually syncretized with local religions such as Taoism and Shinto
    "Preferrably covered in one article". Who says? If these religions really have a lot in common, maybe call the article "Buddhism and Taoism" or something along those lines, but "Religion in East Asia" would also include a lot of Muslims in Indonesia and Malaysia, along with Christians in the Philippines and South Korea. In other words, you can find followers of almost any religion in East Asia, so this really isn't the best travel topic idea in my opinion. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 02:42, 27 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Should Buddhism cover what is not too much intertwined with Taoism & al (as it now does) and Taoism and Shinto discuss also the blending? –LPfi (talk) 07:36, 28 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • The blending of Buddhism with Taoism and Confucianism is to my understanding mostly a Chinese phenomenon, and of course the blending of Buddhism with Shintoism is solely Japanese. Does that answer your question? I will say this: Shintoism and Buddhism are blended in Japan, but there are some differences. However, the coexistence between the two religions is shown by the fact that it's common for a Shinto shrine to be next to or near a Buddhist temple. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:01, 28 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • Yes, to my understanding also. I suppose this is so common in Taoism & al that it should be covered in those articles, while it is of less significance for Buddhism, and could in that article be mentioned in passing only.

  • Town twinning is alluded to in twin towns (disambiguation), which also covers the unrelated Twin Cities concept. If there's something specific for the traveller to see or do, usually an event or cultural exchange as an activity like "Dull and Boring Days" in Boring OR USA, these might be travel-relevant as a separate topic. (We don't need a full list of every "twinned town" or "sister city" as there are a few thousand in Europe alone, many with just a signpost or a plaque at City Hall in the respective communities. w:Twin towns and sister cities is a good overview.)

  • The Troubles. I don't know if I'm actually requesting this; instead, I'd like to discuss it. I just deleted a link to the Wikipedia article about this horrible time in the history of Northern Ireland, but I had the thought that although the topic is delicate, it might make sense at some point to create a travel topic for people who would like more insight into The Troubles. For example, in Belfast, they should see the murals on the Protestant and Catholic sides of the city and go to the memorial for Catholic martyrs near the former wall. I don't know if it's too soon for there to be such a topic, though, in view of the hard feelings on both sides and continuing tension. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:54, 10 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
An interesting prospect for a topic. According to Wikivoyage:Naming conventions we avoid the in article names including travel topic. Our article on the Holocaust is named Holocaust remembrance. Could we find a suitable name for this article? /Yvwv (talk) 11:12, 11 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I wonder if we have enough regular contributors editing destinations in Northern Ireland and Ireland to be confident of producing balanced correctly nuanced coverage of a sensitive area of recent history. It would be better to cover a longer period from the w:Easter Rising (or earlier) to the w:Good Friday Agreement. The events of 1916 in Dublin are more easily viewed as history than the bombing in Omagh in 1998. AlasdairW (talk) 20:40, 11 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A broader topic as you outlined would be fine, and segments of it could always be spun off whenever it gets long. In terms of nomenclature, though, if the topic on the Holocaust didn't have the word "remembrance" in it, we could easily use the phrase "Nazi Holocaust", but in this case, "The" is always used and "Troubles" wouldn't make sense. So per ttcf and as an exception like The Hague, we should use "The" in the title if we go with this topic. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:02, 11 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Nibelungen tourism - the famous stories about Siegfried &co. may claim to be based on historical events, but they rather belong under "fiction". Worms and Bayreuth are obvious destinations
  • Hunger Games tourism - about the 12 districts in Panam - aka CA, US and Mexico.
  • Soap opera tourism - I'm no fan of soap operas myself, but perhaps we can have a travel topic for fans of long-running shows like Australia's Neighbours, or the UK's Coronation Street. The dog2 (talk) 19:51, 7 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think that's way too broad a topic for an article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:29, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It is, but could be broken down, written in pieces by authors who know some specific theme (such as the mentioned salsa article); Dancing could be more or less an index (like Winter sports, covering some themes that don't warrant or don't have their own article). I assume Argentinian tango and some other specific genres would be worthwhile articles. What about the ballroom dances (and similar pair dances) as social dancing? Are those danced commonly enough around the (Western?) world that one might want to check on them before some kinds of travel (such as if you prefer a dance restaurant over disco, or are going to attend a wedding)? Cf Finland#Social dancing. Folk dances are too region-specific in general, but some have got international attention (we had a American square dance course in my tiny, not dance-oriented, student club). –LPfi (talk) 09:47, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Roller sport/Roller sports/Skateboarding/Roller skating
  • Sailing (Sailing ships?) - I changed the redirect into a disambiguation page, but noticed we have nothing on sailing in the spirit of Sail Training International or Tall Ships' Races, and neither about the many smaller sailing ships providing commercial cruises of a day or a few (or longer, but without typical cruise ship amenities), hopefully with real sailing. I think those three could be handled in the article, with links to Cruise ships and Cruising on small craft for most of the rest.
  • Samba
  • Sepak takraw - big sport in Southeast Asia (w:Sepak takraw)
  • Fan conventions / science fiction conventions, etc – the main topic conventions (and convention planning) also redlinks.

  • Sumo
  • Tennis: A sport that is both played and watched on holiday
  • 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 [5] [6] [7] [8] although some of theses article talk about taking photos when you're alone which overlaps but is not the same thing.

Learn edit

  • 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.
  • Erasmus – a European study exchange programme, the major one for Europeans wanting to study abroad. The article could cover the European higher education system as harmonized in the Bologna process, perhaps with a name such as Studying in Europe.

Work edit

  • 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.
WWOOF is just one network or organisation; why limit this? We have working abroad but not an article specific to working on farms. The Australian backpacker visa programme, for instance, is worth at least a mention. K7L (talk) 00:50, 27 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • 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.

  • Wool - traditional craft of woolen clothing, and exclusive fabrics such as merino, alpaca and camel hair
  • Watches - Where to buy expensive watches; watches good for different purposes (sport watches, cheap generic watches which can be afford to be lost), risks of carrying pirate watches through customs
  • Records and audio equipment - Vinyl records, vintage audio systems, as well as modern Bluetooth equipment; some connection with music, nostalgia, art and antiques shopping and electrical systems
  • Vehicle import - Some car makers have setups for private car imports to evade tariffs. A one-way roadtrip, selling the car and flying home can be a good setup in some cases
    Isn't this too much of a gamble? If it is a viable method to get a cheap car for your voyage, it would probably be OK, but if you have to read up on loopholes in import law and forecast selling prices, making a big loss if something unanticipated happen, then I don't think it is a thing for a travel guide. And if we are into the grey area of legality (by your being a nominal but not real buyer and seller), then our illegal activities guideline may apply. –LPfi (talk) 14:37, 14 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think we should have an article on importing a car to sell. It would have to be written on the basis that you declare the import at customs and pay the taxes, which is unlikely to yield much profit even if a buyer has already paid you in advance. It would have to be written on the basis of the traveller going to buy a car for their own use. This could also apply to buying a second-hand car - friends have travelled 200 miles to another city to buy a car because the prices are lower there, and in a more extreme example some older Japanese cars are exported to New Zealand. Are the laws on vehicle importation consistent enough around the world for this us to be able to offer useful advice? AlasdairW (talk) 16:57, 14 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There's also a fast food in North America article which list out the fast food joints, which are a modern equivalent to a "roadside diner". A number of these North American fast food restaurants have an international presence outside of North America too.

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

  • Isn't Middle Eastern cuisine largely an extension of Turkish cuisine? Of course, there are regional cuisines in Turkey.

@Ikan Kekek: I don't know who invented it first, but it is part of both traditional Hokkien and Teochew cuisines.

And speaking of the Teochew version, there's a variant you can get in Bangkok Chinatown as well.

  • 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.
    There is an existing article about touts under Common scams. You can edit that article to include your ideas about touts or the information you have in mind is already there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
Something like Driving across the United States would be a better idea. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 20:03, 14 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Life on the Mississippi Tour - The first half of the book sees Mark Twain reminiscing on his experiences as a steamboat pilot plying the Mississippi River between St. Louis and New Orleans in the 1850s. The second half has him making the same trip around 1883 and remarking on the changes that had taken place on the river (and in American life in general) in the interim. Our article might start with a discussion of long-distance riverboat cruises or other present-day ways to retrace the route, then go on to the itinerary itself where for each major city along the way we'd give historical overviews of what the place was like in both of the time periods relevant to the book, as well as what's around to attract visitors today. For the latter, we might emphasize historical attractions representing time periods roughly contemporaneous with Twain's career (i.e. restored antebellum homes in Natchez, the Vicksburg National Military Park, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis as starting point for Lewis and Clark's voyage and symbolic Gateway to the West) but also include more generalized tourist sites (Graceland in Memphis, the French Quarter). -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 19:10, 17 December 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Scandinavian American Tour in the trails of real-life Swedish, Norwegian and Danish settlers, as well as historical fiction, such as The Emigrants by Vilhelm Moberg. /Yvwv (talk) 23:26, 15 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Cabot Trail around Cape Breton, New Scotland is mentioned in a few places but redlinks
  • Frank Lloyd Wright Trail in Wisconsin, as covered in this recent Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel article. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 00:37, 17 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gifford Pinchot National Forest is the national forest surrounding Mount St Helens. Rather than a separate article it can serve as an appendix to the existing Mount Saint Helens article.
  • Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean Highway (w:Pikes_Peak_Ocean_to_Ocean_Highway)
  • Minnesota Industry Tour, an appendix to American Industry Tour
  • Interstate 95 (w:Interstate 95) article can be made similar to the existing Interstate 5 article only it parallels from the Eastern Seaboard, it goes from the Canadian border in Houlton, Maine to Miami, Florida. It replaces US Highway 1 (which is still there) when the interstate highways were built. This can also be appended to the existing US Highway 1 article or as a new article, whichever way would make it easier to read and edit.
  • Amtrak Coast Starlight Train (w:Coast Starlight) runs once daily from Seattle to Los Angeles and vice versa. There is already an existing Amtrak Cascades article which lists the stations served by the Amtrak Cascades from Vancouver BC to Eugene OR. The Amtrak Coast Starlight runs concurrent with the Cascades from Seattle to Eugene with the same stops, except Tukwila, WA and Oregon City. The Coast Starlight continues towards Los Angeles from Eugene OR via Chemult and Klamath Falls, Oregon (also listed in the Cascaades article) before crossing into California. In California the Coast Starlight runs concurrent with the Capitol Corridor to San Jose and with the San Jaoquins trains to Oakland from Sacramento; and with the Pacific Surfliner train from San Luis Obisbo to Los Angeles with the same stops. The other Amtrak California trains make more stops, on a more frequent schedule, than the Coast Starlight along the shared route. The Pacific Surfliner train continues this route from Los Angeles to San Diego. Locally, it also share the same route with Sound Transit's Sounder commuter train from Everett WA to Seattle to Lakewood, WA in Washington State; from Oxnard, CA to Oceanside (via Los Angeles) with Metrolink; and the Coaster train connecting Oceanside to San Diego in southern California. Therefore, this new article can be done by adding upon the existing Amtrak Cascades article by changing the title, headers and pictures; change some of the wording to include information about train travel in California, and list out the California stations from Dunsmuir, CA to Los Angeles or to San Diego which would include the other Amtrak California trains running along the shared segments of the route as well.
  • Interstate 90 (w:Interstate 90 and w:Yellowstone Trail ) The longest transcontinental interstate highway spanning from Seattle to Boston through Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts. There is a discussion in the discussion page of the Mountains to Sound Greenway article as to whether to rename and convert that article into "I-90". I-90/94 follow the old Yellowstone Auto Trail that predated the US Highway system of 1926.
  • Routes to the Klondike (w:Klondike_Gold_Rush#Routes_to_the_Klondike) in the footsteps of w:Scrooge McDuck and others who wanted to get rich by digging gold at the turn of the century.
  • Copper Canyon Railway is a train operated by FerroMex through the Copper Canyon, between Chihuahua and Los Mochis by the Sea of Cortez, through the Copper Canyon. It is the most common way for travelers to get in and through the Copper Canyon with stops in different villages along the way in both door directions as well description of what's there along the route. The Copper Canyon Railway is also the only major intercity passenger railroad in Mexio.

Oceania edit

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

I've redirected these suggestions to Magellan-Elcano circumnavigation. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 21:21, 9 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not with their own vessel. The article only says that would be the most authentic way. I said in the edit summary when reverting the removal of this entry: "None of the suggested articles covers the suggested topic". The Elcano article does not even say whether the route is feasible or whether the waypoints are reachable by boat today, much less to what extent it is the route modern yachts take. --LPfi (talk) 08:00, 10 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've changed the redirects to go to Cruising on small craft and Around the world overland. —Granger (talk · contribs) 08:20, 10 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm pretty sure most sailors that go around the globe don't try to replicate Magellan's and Elcano's voyage exactly but instead want to take a more optimal route and/or visit more places on the beaten path. Likewise, I believe most travelers interested in this trip lack the time, skills and/or resources to travel it by sailing boat. Therefore: it's not the right article to redirect circumnavigation to. Round the world overland is a much better alternative, although circumnavigation could certainly merit its own article if we eventually get a contributor that knows about the subject (long distance sailing is not that uncommon). --ϒpsilon (talk) 11:58, 10 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
