Fodor's travel guides are really good for giving you a visual sense of the place you are visiting. The pictures are beautiful and the writing is very descriptive. There are a couple of shortcomings with the Fodor series, in my opinion: 1) They tend to emphasize touristy and popular (aka expensive) places. 2) There are not a lot of free/inexpensive/offbeat activities listed. 3) I think they tend to overemphasize the positive, and ignore negative aspects of a place. These are issues associated with a lot of travel guides, though. I will continue to purchase Fodor's guides because they are visual, descriptive and well-organized.
