Best of Citysearch Mashup

Best of Citysearch + Google Maps: This mashup of and Google Maps will help you find the best restaurants, hotels, nightlife, shopping and services in major US cities as voted on
I have implemented the GDirections Google Maps API, which will help you to get directions to the locations on the same map. The RSS feeds from has location address and descriptions in the same RSS tag, so I had to parse the address in a non standard way to extract just the location address from the feed and plot it on the map, seem to be working fine now, hopefully will not change the RSS formating, if so I may have to modify my parsing script.

I have also created "Best of Citysearch" Mapplet for those interested: ""
(To add this mapplet, go to this link, login and select "Add it to Maps")
