Local Search Sites

Here's my current list of local search sites. Please let leave a comment letting us know of any others you use or know of. Thanks!

Google Maps - consolidates info from many of the vertical engines listed below.
Yahoo Local
Mapquest - I'm the only one in my area on here - please join me! - vertical - specific to the restaurant industry - vertical - specific to the restaurant industry - vertical - restaurant industry
