Take a tour online before you travel.
The top source of online travel information for the business traveler remains the aptly named ontheroad.com (http://www.ontheroad.com), a San Francisco publisher of customized industry data about 11 global centers of commerce. There, travelers can download information such as business happenings on specific dates, and information about museums and entertainment to their laptop or palmtop. It's an eminently useful service and well worth the $99.95 annual subscription if you find yourself traveling for business often.
But where do you go for other information?
