This book is a Gem! We found it highly informative, accurate, and useful on our recent trip to Seattle and Ocean Shores, Washington. The book provides the essentials without being too wordy. Interesting tidbits galore! One example of the book's usefulness was a recommendation to dine at Ocean Crest Resort in Moclips because "you won't find a more spectacular view anywhere on the Washington coast." Well, from the outside, this Resort is nothing special. In fact, were it not for the book, we never would have thought of stopping there. But are we glad. What a view! Dense trees, framing an ocean view, with a winding wooden staircase leading in erratic zig zags down to the beach below. It was worth the cost of the book! ....

I found this to be an excellent user friendly, tradtional tourist guide book. However, it was published in 1998 and would be better if updated. It offers "The best of" in more than a dozen categories such as restaurants, B&Bs, hikes, etc which gives good starting points for trip planning. Phone numbers and web site address are available to obtain more detailed information on areas of interest. A map of "Washington State Driving Times " was very helful since we have found that in unfamiliar locations, driving times are sometimes easy to misfigure based only on milage.
Like other Frommer's guide books that I have used, I find this type of advice the best because it lists good choices from expensive to budget. For an average family tourist, this book is an excellent general guide.

The content organization of the book is pretty good. I purchased the Kindle version for my iPad with the thought that I wouldn't have to carry as many books on a two week trip. Unfortunately, the Kindle version of the book is poor. No table of contents and no index. In a travel book I consider them to be critical.

We only cracked this book open for comparisons to the Moon book and found Frommers lacking. Frommers had very few suggestions if any in the smaller towns for lodging and eating. Carried info only on the expensive restaurants and lodging :(

I have always liked Frommer books for traveling. I think that they have the best overall information on locations. We are going to Seattle, San Juan Islands, Olympic National Park, and Mount Rainer. This book had great information on these spots.
