The blog Engineering a Better World might seem a far cry from the wanderlust world, but in a year when even the most enthusiastic travelers are watching their wallets, the site’s Culture on the Cheap article is right up our alley. The compilation of 100 websites offers a pretty comprehensive guide to local arts and entertainment offerings throughout the United States. The listings include state guides, city guides, and guides to niche entertainment/interest sites such as Bird Watcher’s Digest. Hey, if you’re watching your wallet and enjoy the outdoors, a birding festival might be just the thing!
