Web Site of the Week: MapQuest Vibe
Posted by: Christine Bulson
Now that most librarians are home from ALA Midwinter, it is time to plan for the trip to Anaheim in June. Los Angeles may be daunting to those unfamiliar with the area but mqVibe.com may help librarians choose an area of Anaheim for hotels, restaurants, etc. Searching is first by city and then locations within the city. Anaheim has a number of neighborhoods including the Historic District, Sycamore Canyon, Disneyland and Anaheim Resort which is the area where the convention center and the headquarter hotels are located. The area receives a "vibe score" based on user votes and other factors such as the comparison between residential areas and businesses and walkability. A map displays restaurants, hotels, health services, spas, activities and local services ranked by votes from users. This site would also be a useful site for relocation research.
