Great vacation planner

on 5/17/2012

We used this book while planning our trip around the country. We stopped at several places we didn't know existed as a result. Going to these places usually required taking non-freeway roads which added to the experiences. My cousin was so impressed with the book I bought a copy for her. It was fun to read about non-famous places I knew about as a kid. Also, it is good reading even if you don't go to these places. Read More

Worth Getting

on 5/17/2012

Was very informative & definiately WORTH getting. The size is both an advantage in that it is easy to read & the maps are clear but it makes it a bit cumbersome to use in the car. Great for a reference for highlighting road maps. Been to several places & the discriptions etc. were dead on. The book is a Wonderful adjunct to other travel books such as "1000 Places to See before you Die.USA & Canada." Read More
