Lonely Planet announced on Wednesday that it is offering up several of its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch city guides for free during the massive snow storm that’s covering a substantial portion of the U.S. The company is offering the guides for free so stranded travelers will have an easy way to find local activities, restaurants and hotels while they wait for flights back home.
