If you're looking for something these days, a good resource to turn to is Google Maps. Chances are that you can find where you want to go and how to get there depending on your mode of transport.
Within hours of the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed by U.S. Forces, the location of his compound was already marked on Google Maps.
Of course, Google also gives its users the ability to leave reviews on locations. This resulted in some rather humorous entries from the internet.
