http://www.oraphp.com - Geo Location Atlas.
Once visited, you can see nice OVI map of place based on ISP of yours with clickable foursquare places to explore.
Plus current weather and forecast displayed.
If the location is urban you can have a lot of local online newspapers links under the map.
Just below are latest tweets from location (refresh works too) as well as located news feed from google.
Little magic thing happens when a place name (or address/city) entered instead of detected IP.
For example Sherlock Holmes Museum - to see what's up at Baker Street -> OK.
Know the place and want to refresh memories? Or wanna check views of where never was before?
Look, geo photos from flickr on the right...
Click for the picture full details or browse for next.
Previous tweets from specified location (as far as available) are reachable.
These tweets location radius is adjustable as well (to investigate the exact place or wider range).

For instance, to locate tweets with photos from these geotagged scope just enter word (at bottom left) photo -> click search within!
Well, links on these photos (usually from fb, instagram, twitter, tumblr and others) are clickable...

BTW, how about vine.co twitter videos from the place? Sure, click THE VINES to watch it playlisted...
Under tweets feel free to check what's top on Amazon by random category (at the moment from 10 available global locations)!
Just under Random Pics spoiler are random space cats pics (for your pleasure).

From the release of v3 of the Google Maps API to the release of Yahoo!'s Placemaker "geo-enrichment" platform, there has been a lot of activity on the mapping front in the last few weeks.
Who ever said that institutions were loathe to change? Well call him up and let him know, the Library of Congress, with their Prints and Photographs API has finally taken the REST API plunge.
