Format: Paperback
I was happy to see a new, revised copy of the Great Towns of America come off the press. I can now toss the version from 1998 that I was still carrying around. I travel a great deal and always take a Vokac Great Towns book along, whether it is one of the more specialized area guides, or an all-encompassing tome like the GT of America. When you roll into a town that you have never before visited and need a clever, interesting little place to eat, you can always pick a winner from a Great Towns book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was a bit disappointed in this purchase as I had high hopes for it from the reviews. While I really like the idea of the book the contents are highly skewed to the west coast and didn't really give me a good sense of what it would actually be like to live in or visit the different towns. While the listings do have a lot of information it is mostly in the form of facts & figures and lists of local attractions but I couldn't get a real sense or feel for what the different towns are like.

Format: Paperback
The Great Towns of America is a comprehensive thorough guide to some of the most interesting places in this country. Restaurants, lodging and places to see are covered accurately and briefly with very little that matters left out. References for the economy, politics and weather really help give a true feel for a town. With the few towns I knew really well I found their observations incredibly accurate. With the towns I have visited because of this book my visits have been greatly enhanced. WARNING: Leaving this book in the "library" in one's home for the purpose of frequent perusals will result in travel plans. I am leaving soon to visit Ashland and Baker City OR and am beginning to formulate a visit to three towns in west Texas.

Format: Paperback
One doesn't have to be cliche and choose big cities or resorts for vacations. Small town America has much to offer in the avenue of relaxation. "The Great Towns of America: All New Guide to the 100 Best Getaways for a Vacation or a Lifetime" is a travel guide for those who want pure, unadulterated relaxation in their getaway, or who are trying to choose a good place to move to and live their life in peace. Covering one hundred locales with highly detailed information for each, "The Great Towns of America" is a must for anyone who wants to find themselves in one of America's fine towns in the near future, for whatever reason.
