National Geographic Kids: Beautiful website and easy to navigate. Countries around the world are listed with facts, maps, and photos.
Time for Kids: Useful information includes a History Timeline and Sightseeing Guide for a wide variety of destinations.

The World Factbook: Very straightforward facts on every country.
Castles of the World: Find and read about castles around the world.
Lucy Travels: The ads on this website are distracting, but the activity sheets are fun and and they have some useful travel journal writing tips and advice.
