I thought this was a book about PLACES to see - which the title indicates - it is more about festivals and shows that shouldn't be missed. Not what I was expecting

Format: Paperback
The book is a real disappointment, each section lists recommendations of places to stay and eat that only the rich could afford and are just not practical for the average person. Week long stays that cost $2,100.00 per person - who can afford that. At one point she says the cost of a one night stay at some place costs $210.00 per night, but you should really try the executive suite if you really want an experience. I couldn't afford the $210 a night, I can only guess waht the executive suite costs. It almost feels like she stayed at these places and they got a positive mention in her book - for the right price - her first book was much better.

Fine if you are into fancy resorts and golf courses. We were looking for something a little more scenic and natural.

I found some information helpful. However, being from Michigan, I noticed the book included a couple obscure places in our state that only a specialized group would be interested in, and did not include Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Villiage which is one of the most popular destinations in our state for travelers of all demographics.

Too many words. I could not find what I wanted as easy as I had hoped for. I would not buy it again.

Worthwhile. Note they are not saying that these are the Top 1000 places but instead that these are
a subjective list of 1000 worthwhile places in the opinion of the author. I found it informative and worthwhile.

I greatly enjoy this book. It has helped me narrow down my "bucket list" for places to visit in the United States. I also bought the companion book, which recommends places around the world that shouldn't be missed!

What a great book. I am coming up with a plan to do a driving trip of the U.S.A. and am using this book as my guide to figure out where to go. Organized by state it highlights the top places you should have on your list and does so well with some pictures as well. The descriptions are just the right amount to inform you and let you decide what to visit but not too much. A definite must for travelling the U.S.A.
