I live in California and am always up for a getaway. This excellent guidebook describes short trips through all of California's unique and fascinating areas from busy cities to outdoor playgrounds like Yosemite and Big Sur. The writers are witty as well as informative and give helpful descriptions of cities, attractions, hotels, and restaurants and their prices.
Once I opened the book, I couldn't put it down; I found myself smiling and each page made me want to pack my bags. There are bright, color photos on every page and many easy-to-read maps (plus a larger, pull-out state map that's good for getting the big picture). If you'd like to tiptoe in the tide pools of Malibu, watch thousands of elephant seals sunbathe on a lighthouse beach, shop like a celebrity in Beverly Hills, or see all 21 Spanish Missions from San Diego to Sonoma, this is the book for you.
I don't think I could tire of reading it or absorb all the tips, historical tidbits, and traveler advice. The book is reasonably priced and highly recommended.
