Useful Overview: Not a Comprehensive Guide

If you're looking for some of the most interesting and famous sites in the US, this book will help you locate them. It's a good book to help you decide where to take the children for a fun, educational trip.

The pictures are excellent. There is a bit about each location and ideas for sights to see, restaurants, and places to stay. However, you have to dig deeper if you want to have a comprehensive view of the area.

The book covers sites in Washington, DC; New York City; Boston; and Chicago. There are sections on New Orleans and the South, Florida, the Grand Canyon and the Southwest, the Pacific Northwest and California.

The guide includes National Parks, places to hike, and other points of interest. If you're planning a trip, this is a good place to start, but once you've decided on you destination, you'll need to get other resources to give an overall idea of the area.

I reviewed this book for the Amazon Vine Program.
