9780028618463: Frommer'S USA (5th Ed.)

Now appearing in our new format for the first time, this brand-new edition reflects all the wonderful Frommer's domestic coverage that's appeared in the last two years -- all brought completely up to date for 1998.

With almost 100 page of maps and wonderful scenic driving tours, Frommer's U.S.A. has it all: the Grand Canyon, the California Wine Country., the Shenandoah Valley, Cape Cod, New Orleans, the Rockies, North Carolina's Outer Banks, Utah's spectacular national parks, and much, much more -- all described in incredible detail. We've chosen the very best hotels and restaurants throughout the country, with selections in every price range, and we haven't skimped on shopping and nightlife. A special-interest vacation planner points you to the nation's best outdoor adventures in and out of the national parks, plus ghost towns, foliage tours, learning vacations, and more.

Here in one volume is the very best America has to offer: all major U.S. cities and resorts areas, plus the top national parks and monuments. It's a perfect choice for American travelers who want to explore all the wonders across their own country, and it's indispensable for frequent business travelers and visitors from overseas.

Review:

It's impossible for a single guidebook to completely cover a country as massive and diverse as America, but Frommer's USA comes close. Sure, some will quibble with destination choices (for example, the editors mention Martha's Vineyard, but not Nantucket) but overall, this 1,000-plus-page tome hits the mark. Chapters focus on both major cities and larger regions (New England, Southern California, etc.), covering such basics as activities, lodging, and affordable restaurants, and doing so in excruciating detail (admission prices, hours of operation, directions, whether or not a hotel has valet parking). You'll also find plenty of full-page maps and quirky little sidebars (gourmet food stores in Napa, best Chicago blues bars). As if that weren't enough, there's an online travel directory with Web addresses for everything from Ticketmaster to Zagat's to Amtrak. If you plan on seeing even a sliver of what this country has to offer, take this guidebook with you. --Jill Fergus
