Is "Great Plains" used for the Canadian prairie at all? If not, can we move this article to Great Plains? --Evan 14:47, 21 Jan 2005 (EST)

Added attractions previously and they were removed for some reason. What are qualifications for this page for see, do on a regional context? The purpose is to add overall information for travelers, not to pigeon hole them in individual communities. —The preceding comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

The "See" and "Do" sections on a region article -- especially one covering a region as large as this one -- should give an overview of the types of attractions that one might find, with pointers to appropriate destination articles. To avoid duplication as much as possible, we try to have actual detailed listings for attractions in only one place. For example, rather than having a "See" listing for Wall Drug in this article, we should have a paragraph that discusses tourist traps with wording such as "One of the premier examples is Wall Drug in Wall, South Dakota."

I was the one who moved the listings, for the reasons outlined by LtPowers. The listings are still in travel guides - see Grand Island#See for example - but they have been moved to the city articles. See New Mexico for a good example of how "See" and "Do" information is usually presented for large regions. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:56, 21 March 2009 (EDT)
