This review is from: 5 of USA's Best Trips: Our Favorite Themed Itineraries Across America (Regional Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition)
We do a lot of weekend trips, and I am always on a look out for new destinations. This book is aimed at a food lover and is great at pointing out great places to eat. Being a foodie myself this was one of the things I really enjoyed about the book as the author clearly went on these trips, talked to the locals, and found hidden treasures that a person driving by may not find on his own.
The book covers the following 5 trips:
1 Virginia: The Crooked Road: Heritage Music Trail
2 Vermont: Leaf Peeps & Harvest Eats
3 Minneapolis/Milkwaukee: A Moveable Feast 4 Alice Waters' Culinary Tour
4 California: Waters' Culinary Tour
5 Eugene,OR/ Vancouver,BC: Whistle-Stop Brewery Tour
Each trip starts with a short synopses of why you might enjoy this trip. The author gives a quick summary:
(1) The best time of the year to go.
(2) The time frame recommended for a trip.
(3) The number of miles you will cover.
This book contains images of maps, which I found helpful to have right in front of me.
Being a New Englander I have been to the area described in trip #2 many times I can vouch for quality and accuracy of the trip description, and I was surprised to find some gems that I did not know about.
I will be certain to remedy this on my next trip to Vermont which is coming up shortly!
I really enjoyed this guide and based on my familiarity the Vermont area the trips are very well researched and accurate.
