Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Take the road less traveled and discover the hidden attractions, unique finds, and unusual locales other guidebooks just don’t offer. Off the Beaten Path® features the things you’d want to see—if only you knew about them! From the best in local dining to quirky cultural tidbits, you’ll say over and over again: “I didn’t know that!”
Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Virginia Off the Beaten Path show you the Old Dominion you never knew existed. Ride the world’s fourth-longest escalator at the Rosslyn Metro Station; bid on a Chincoteague pony at the Annual Pony Swim and Auction; or see places where George Washington actually slept, as well as where he lived and where his grain was milled. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.

More About the Author

My next two books to reach the book stores are "Chesapeake Bay Crabs" cookbook, from Pelican Publishing (due September 30, 2011) and the 11th edition of "Virginia Off the Beaten Path" from Globe Pequot Press (due October 4, 2011). I will be signing copies of "Chesapeake Bay Crabs" at Sam's Club in Annapolis, Maryland, on October 15 from 10 am to 12 noon and at Costco in Hanover, Maryland (Arundel Mills), also on October 15 from 2 to 4 pm. It's hard back, 123 recipes (including a crab creme brulee dessert) and lots of photos. Great gift - have all your shopping done by mid October! Please stop by and say hello.

I'm a naturally curious person and I figure if I find something fascinating to me I can try to make it fascinating for you. Primarily, I consider myself a travel writer although my articles rarely appear in travel sections or publications. My articles might be about hotels that provide child-proofing services or where you can buy that wonderfully comfortable pillow from your favorite hotel.

I love it when someone says, "I didn't know that."

I've written about Super Bowl trivia and grocery shopping cart design trends. I have not written about mud wrestling. I've written for the Internet, international and national publications, and more than a dozen books.

A vast army of friends and associates (and some research) keep me informed about what's happening as it's happening. You're encouraged to contribute to my knowledge or suggest a topic or magazine looking for a writer.

Format: Paperback
Where else but in the wonderful state of Virginia would you find five - not one, but five - "kissing bridges" - available for the curious traveler to visit? Jump in your car, forget about the busy highways. Instead, head to the red hued Sinking Creek Bridge in Giles County or the 150-year old Humpback Bridge in Covington, where you can eat your picnic lunch in the nearby park.

Judy Colbert covers these fascinating sites and much more in the 8th edition of Virginia Off the Beaten Path. Discover where to stop for interesting historical and cultural forays, where to eat and where to spend the night if you want to extend your road trip for another day.

This book provides info about sites and amenities in each geographical area of Virginia, so that you can plan the ideal road trip - or trips. You and your spouse can tour wineries across the state or you could introduce your young children to our country's history in a way that they'll never forget.

We highly recommend Judy Colbert's Virginia Off the Beaten Path.
