'''Off the beaten path''' is a showcase article about a lesser-known or unusual travel destination, selected monthly by Wikitravel's users. See [[Previous Destinations of the month]] for better-known destinations, and [[Wikitravel:Destination_of_the_Month_candidates#Nominations_for_Off_the_Beaten_Path|Wikitravel:Destination of the Month candidates]] to nominate and discuss future "Off the beaten path" destinations.

Wikipedia is apparently being filtered by the maintenance on this site. Unfortunately, the method they are using to make sure the maintenance is working makes it impossible for Wikipedia to differentiate between legitimate users and those abusing the site. '''As a result, we have been forced to block several IP addresses, users, and proxies from editing and/or viewing Wikipedia.'''

'''Unregistered and new users:''' If you are in a unregistered account block, [[Wikipedia:Why create an account?|an account can be created]] to allow you to edit. Please use [http://toolserver.org/~acc/ this form] to request an account under your preferred username. In general, these blocks only prevent users who are not logged in from editing; once you are logged in, the block will no longer affect you in any way. If e-mailing, please refer to this block in your message.

Wikipedia tries to be open, but we sometimes must [[Wikipedia:Blocking policy|block]] a range of [[IP address]]es or an entire network, to prevent editing by abusers, vandals, or block evaders.

<font color="red">'''These "range blocks" can affect users who have done nothing wrong. If you are a legitimate user, follow the instructions below to edit despite the block'''</font>. Users who are the intended target of a range block may still [[Wikipedia:Guide to appealing blocks|appeal the block]].

[[Wikipedia:Why create an account?|Registered users]] are still able to edit as long as they subscribe to gold. If you are currently blocked from creating an account, use our [http://toolserver.org/~acc account creation tool] to request an account with details of your block as explained below. Alternatively, you could have edited anonymously, and create an account through, our secure erver, which does  currently seem to be affected badly.
