My Urban Sherpa is an Internet resource for travelers and residents alike, whose plethora of interests and dearth of free time demand reliable information of the well-heeled and well-traveled. My Urban Sherpa recommends restaurants, shops, exercise facilities and cultural events that cover well-known destinations and hidden neighborhood gems. Easy to navigate, time efficient, and up-to-date, the site winnows an overwhelming number of choices into a manageable and reliable selection.

Visitors can search for information by category and neighborhood. Listings include the street address, phone number, map, Web link, pithy description and occasionally a logo or photo.
