London 2012: Where Not to be During the Games

A useful tip for those planning to attend the London Olympics, courtesy of the UK Travel Blog: Using a series of "heatmaps," Transport for London has highlighted transportation hotspots to avoid during the games.

According to TfL's website, 70 percent of traffic will be unaffected by the Games, but trips into or across some areas (such as near venues, the ORN or Road event routes) will be affected. The maps provided show what impacts are expected by day, time and location.

Good to know: We hear the busiest day of the Olympics is expected to be Friday, August 3, but there’s also information showing how roads will be affected during the Olympic torch relay the month before.

235 days and counting until that torch is lit…We can't wait!
