As someone who has loves travel but has limited time off, the 36 hours format is great. I know having used a few of these columns that they can mean the difference between a sort of rudderless long weekend somewhere, and a better choreographed experience. Full guidebooks are often overwhelming and a little soulless for my taste, and this is different. There are practical suggestions but the columns also convey a real sense of what it's like to be immersed in a place, and they address the reality that most people aren't able to get as much time as they'd like in a specific spot. Frankly, even if the trips aren't ones that I'll be able to make anytime soon, just sampling the book gives a vicarious experience.

As an avid reader of the New York Times 36 Hours feature for years, I have been waiting for this book. Not only is the guide a fun read for an armchair traveler like myself but it's the ultimate weekend planner for the literate by the literate--where even Oklahoma City can be as alluring as Paris. Though the guide leans a bit to the hip versus the vital for some destinations it makes readers intelligent insiders to every major spot in the US at the rate of about five minutes per stop. Addicting.

I have been reading the "36 Hours" columns for many years. I used to cut them out and save them but lately have used the internet to find the columns that I needed. This book makes it much easier to find what I want and I have enjoyed reading many of the columns again. Also got some new ideas for short trips.

I wish they would publish 2 other books of New York Times travel columns. The "Practical Traveler" column is packed full of useful information and would make a great book for anyone interested in travel . . . . . and why not a second volume of the "36 Hours" column featuring foreign destinations? I would buy both of them. I'd bet that many people would.

This is really a great book for both the armchair traveler and anyone wanting to visit a city for the weekend. For the former, you get a breezy style and vicarious sense of what it's like to go. For the latter, it's an accessible way to go on a tour where all the major hot spots have been vetted for you and narrowed down to a sort of top 10 list.

Got this as a present for my sister's birthday, since she loves to travel but has a job that keeps her busy for most of the time. So this is perfect for her. Her and her man went to two of the detailed cities, hopefully doing the third for their honeymoon.

I bought this for my mother-in-law for Christmas because she and my father-in-law love to travel and often run off for the weekend. She loves this book and they've already taken a trip and set up another based on suggestions in this book. We are so glad we found it.
