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.

  • Kerma, one of the largest and most ancient archeological sites in ancient Nubia



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 AmericaEdit

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)
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. But I have no intention to create it myself, since outside of what I see on Wikipedia I have no knowledge of the place. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:31, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

South AmericaEdit



  • Kuk Swamp archeological and UNESCO World Heritage site in Papua New Guinea providing evidence of agriculture 9000 years ago. Only a one-line listing in the broad highlands region article at the moment.


Czech RepublicEdit

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)


  • Coulommiers, town known for a particular variety of Brie cheese
  • Langres is a city in the Haute-Savoie region, which is, in a nutshell, a medieval city as uninterrupted by time as can be (aside inevitable inventions such as electricity and cars). Commons has some, though not many pictures of the city.




  • 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 topicsEdit

Reasons to travelEdit



Get inEdit

Get aroundEdit

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)
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)
  • 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
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)
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)
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)
Quite a lot, it seems, if this site is correct and up to date. Ypsilon (talk) 18:06, 4 May 2019 (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.

Or perhaps even African-American history? --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 16:33, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
Libraries and monuments are too broad. Even prehistoric sites and archives are pretty broad, so I'm not sure if these are as good travel topics as they seem. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 21:51, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Marine history would be another prominent subdivision to cover museums, we already have Old ships don't we? 10:22, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
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)
  • Royal palaces - royal families are somewhat covered in monarchies.
  • Artisans and crafts - see pottery, jewels or handicrafts being made. (May also be "buy" if products are for sale.)
  • Sightseeing in general; planning an independent sightseeing, finding appropriate guided tours, pros and cons of different modes of transport, etc
    • Imho this topic is too general. What non-obvious things are there to say about sightseeing that don't hugely depend on the sights themselves or the destination? Hobbitschuster (talk) 21:20, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
I think we should remove this one from the list and redirect it to "Attractions". --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 21:51, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
I've created Biomes and ecosystems along those lines. Selfie City (talk) 00:34, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
I think this fits pretty well in the "textiles" article, where it is mentioned now. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:55, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
  • 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)
"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)

Historical travelEdit

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)
See Grand and Great houses ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 09:36, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
IMO think it's too broad a topic. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 20:06, 14 September 2018 (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 tourismEdit

See Talk:Fiction tourism#Requested topics for additional proposed topics.

Reality televisionEdit

  • The Amazing Race tourism - either a travel topic or itinerary. The only issue is that there are many seasons (over 30) and about 20-30 cities are visited each season.
Unrealistic, because as the person posting the suggestion said, there are hundreds and hundreds of places to be listed (see w:The_Amazing_Race_(American_TV_series)#Series_overview for links to WP articles of each season). Ypsilon (talk) 14:29, 26 July 2019 (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)
In my opinion, too broad a topic. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:44, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Reggae
  • Rhythm and blues, soul music, blues - sites related to popular music history from the 1950s to today. (Rock and roll and Jazz were created in 2018.)
  • Roller sport/Roller sports/Skateboarding/Roller skating
  • 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.
  • Scouting; about how to travel with help of the international Scout movement (international camps, lodging, hospitality exchange etc.). Some info in Summer camp
  • Sumo
  • Tattoos; possibly the most lasting kind of souvenir
  • 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 [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)
Obviously, my opinion would be naturally important here considering my username, although actually I am not a big selfie person. But this article could make sense for a travel guide. Selfie City (talk) 17:50, 10 August 2018 (UTC)


  • 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.
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)


-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.
Can be branched off from textiles.
  • 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
  • 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


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:

This is covered at Fruits and vegetables#Nuts and there is not enough info there for a separate article. Does the requester want that section expanded, or did they overlook that it existed? Nurg (talk) 23:06, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
@Nurg: Agreed that this is already covered. Should we slush? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 02:29, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I would just delete it from this list. Nurg (talk) 07:18, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Also, there's a lot to write about the history of spices, including the spice trade a few centuries ago, where certain spices and herbs are from, how and when they spread around the world etc.
  • Sake; The Other Site has an extensive article named Japanese sake tourism; if we reverse-engineer it with anorther title, we will probably not be penalized by search engines
  • I am now on a pretty strict ketogenic diet and have traveled with it for close to a month (3 weeks in California and Oregon and what will be a week in Upstate New York), and I've lost around 15 pounds in that time plus a couple of weeks at home, without starving myself in the least. Should I start a Travelling on a low carbohydrate diet article? Before I do, what if any concerns do you have about how the article should be written? Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:52, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ikan Kekek: In my opinion, it would make the most sense to create a Travelling on a diet article with sections that cover different types of diets. Selfie City (talk) 01:45, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
We already have a dedicated article on Kashrut, so what kinds of diets are being subsumed here? A keto diet such as I am on is for health, but celiac folks absolutely cannot have gluten in even one meal without getting violently ill, so the urgency of the diet is different. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:10, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
I think Kashrut/kosher is an exception; the number of people on the diet justifies the article's existence. It would be interesting to find statistics comparing how many people are on each diet so we can get an idea about which would be the most useful to the traveler. Selfie City (talk) 01:51, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
I think any special diet would make a good article. If you're one of 100 people in the world who has to follow an oregano-free diet, and you find the article on travelling without coming in contact with oregano in Wikivoyage (don't go to Italy), you'd be pretty happy. Ground Zero (talk) 03:43, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
And low-carb diets are quite common. I think I'll just start the article soon, and anyone can edit it, anyway. Avoiding gluten for celiac folks should be its own article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:06, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
If you were able to expand it to include other controlled carbohydrate diets the appeal of the article would be widened, at least until we get a Travelling with Diabetes article. I expect that many of the issues are similar whether you are trying to eat <10g or close to 50g of carbohydrate for lunch, but I could be wrong. However don't let me distract you from creating a useful article. AlasdairW (talk) 22:58, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
All sorts of diets are common. Low carb, low fat, even low protein for people who only have one functioning kidney. They would benefit some travellers out there. Gizza (roam) 23:16, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank God I don't have diabetes, and my current diet is likely to stave it off, so I can't easily address diabetes directly, but I'll start the article tonight, and I'd welcome any help from anyone who wants to address diabetes specifically. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:36, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Sugar - everything related to sugarcane, sugar beets, other sugar plants, their cultivation and processing, rum and other uses of the said plants including the connection with slavery and whatnot
  • Fungi/Mushrooms; according to modern taxonomy, they are not vegetable. While yeast and molds are catalytic ingredients in many dishes, an article on fungi would mainly deal with the mushrooms; the spore-bearing bodies of fungi consumed as food. /Yvwv (talk) 19:42, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
    Biologically they're not plants, but from a culinary perspective they're vegetables, right? I think we could start with a section in Fruits and vegetables and see how it goes. —Granger (talk · contribs) 01:24, 15 April 2019 (UTC)


  • Overview on booking Gîtes de France - currently just a section in the main France article and a disambig to Québec's B&B houses at gîte
  • A few less-common accommodation types listed at sleep (such as cabins, cottages, hunting/fishing outfitters camps) don't have individual articles yet. Campground redirects to camping, which has about a paragraph on the topic.
  • There is no room service. Garçon?


  • Saving time - how a busy traveller can avoid wasting precious hours on connections, slow-service restaurants and rest areas


Stay healthyEdit

Stay safeEdit

  • 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)
  • Water safety lacks an article, but has a section in water sports. Swimming redirects. (Conversely, ice safety is an article.)
  • 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)
I split out a couple articles from Severe weather, including cyclones. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 18:45, 4 September 2018 (UTC)


It now redirects to Ethnic groups, which has links to some more related topics. Selfie City (talk) 00:27, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Taboo, broad and difficult topic to begin writing about. Perhaps respect isn't the best section but hard to place. There may be some overlap with culture shock (see above). Gizza (roam) 14:12, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Houseguest etiquette, including some of the ways that it varies by culture
  • Cheek kissing, the standard greeting in much of Europe and Latin America, usually confusing for English-speakers. Included with Respect, or another topic? /Yvwv (talk) 16:05, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm thinking the article would be one on how to greet and take leave of people (what to do when you say "Hello" and "Goodbye"). I suppose the overall title could be "Greeting people" or something like that. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:04, 22 February 2019 (UTC)





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)
  • Across Yugoslavia, Ljubljana to Skopje or something like that. Now made up of 7 countries, Yugoslavia was one single country during most of the 20th century, and a route from end to end of this former country via historically important places from that era could be an interesting itinerary. -- ϒψιλον (talk) 17:20, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
  • London LOOP (w:London Outer Orbital Path), 150 mi/242 km long-distance trail around London which I stumbled upon when wandering around Wikipedia. Looks like something worth an itinerary article, and as London is one of the cities Wikivoyage covers best, perhaps we have some contributor(s) familiar with this path? --Ypsilon (talk) 16:28, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Middle EastEdit

North AmericaEdit

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)
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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Grapes of Wrath
  • Route 101 / U.S. Route 101
  • National Road (w:National Road)
  • Sherman's March to the Sea - the most famous military campaign in US history, passing through Georgia (State) and still debated among historians and laypeople alike for its military genius and moral implications of waging "total war"


South AmericaEdit

Central AmericaEdit

  • 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)
...which is no use to anyone looking for info on how to make the trip today. K7L (talk) 22:26, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
...Except that it gets them around the world. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 23:00, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
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)
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)
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)
As Greta is still a living person, I think that we would need to approach this very carefully, or wait 100? years. As we are thin on policy in this area, I think that w:Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons should be considered. AlasdairW (talk) 18:55, 18 September 2019 (UTC)


Project pagesEdit

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)
