With 100 page of maps, Frommer's USA 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. You'll find the nation's best outdoor adventures, plus theme parks, ghost towns, foliage tours, learning vacations, and more.

It's all based on the personal research of our expert writers, who are based all around the country, and who know how to point you to the top places and experiences, no matter what your interests or budget. This guide is a perfect choice for American travelers who want to explore all the wonders across their own country, and indispensable for frequent business travelers and visitors from overseas. You'll even get an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!

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
