# I want to get <h2>, 'Official website' and 'Address' from this website as a dataFrame using BeautifulSoup
# I see the items 14 of them on the html source code pls help
page_link = ''
# this is the url that we've already determined is safe and legal to scrape from.
page_response = requests.get(page_link)
# here, we fetch the content from the url, using the requests library
page_content = BeautifulSoup(url_get.content, 'html.parser')
#we use the html parser to parse the url content and store it in a variable.
Your code does not work, so I made some tiny changes:

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

page_link     = ''
page_response = requests.get(page_link)
page_content  = BeautifulSoup(page_response.content, 'html.parser')

Thanks a lot, heiner55. Good job.
Is there a way I can extract the headers (the 14 Top-Rated Tourist Attractions), their given 'Addresses' and their listed 'Official websites'. These are all on the page. My eventual goal is to get a pandas dataframe and even append their locations, ratings etc, later
Sure. But I thought you will try it yourself.
Here is a sample:
Yes I am trying but I feel I am more of doing it manually. I am doing so right now but of course I will appreciate.... I really appreciate the ".prettify())" line you added. Cheers.
Here some basics stuff using the first Tourist Attraction.
>>> article = page_content.find('div', class_="article_block site")
>>> article.find('h2')
<h2 class="sitename" id="N-OSL-VIG"><b>1</b>  Vigeland Sculpture Park</h2>
>>> article.find('h2').text
'1  Vigeland Sculpture Park'
>>> official_site = article.find('div', class_="web").find('a')
>>> official_site.get('href')
As mention bye @heiner55,try yourself.
We have a tutorial here Web-Scraping part-1
Great tutorial. Thanks for the kind of patience you have for newbies.
