Overview


It's the phenomenon: 1,000 Places to See Before You Die has 2.2 million copies in print and has spent 144 weeks and counting on The New York Times bestseller list.

Now, shipping in time for the tens of millions of travelers heading out for summer trips, comes 1,000 Places to See in the U.S.A. & Canada Before You Die. Sail the Maine Windjammers out of Camden. Explore the gold-mining trails in Alaska's Denali wilderness. Collect exotic shells on the beaches of Captiva. Take a barbecue tour of Kansas City—from Arthur Bryant's to Gates to B.B.'s Lawnside to Danny Edward's to LC's to Snead's. There's the ice hotel in Quebec, the Great Stalacpipe Organ in Virginia, cowboy poetry readings, what to do in Louisville after the Derby's over, and for every city, dozens of unexpected suggestions and essential destinations.

The book is organized by region, and subject-specific indices in the back sort the book by interest—wilderness, great dining, best beaches, world-class museums, sports and adventures, road trips, and more. There's also an index that breaks out the best destinations for families with children. Following each entry is the nuts and bolts: addresses, websites, phone numbers, costs, best times to visit.

I use this book all the time. Whether its a weekend excursion to New Orleans or I'm headed off for an adventure far away, I look here first. This recommendations so far have been right on and have revealed to me some very interesting places close to home that I never knew about. If you enjoy travelling and getting off the beaten path, get this book!

I agreed with most of the places in the book, but this is by no means an extensive listing of what to see. Its a great tool to start researching a new area for a trip. Its a good supplement.

For someone who would like to travel and don't know where to go. The book gives you information about what to expect when you get there. Information on different areas and states to visit. Good book.
