Overview

This is the book that started it all—that launched a best-selling regional guidebook series, put stars in the eyes of thousands of establishments, and defined what it means to create a real insider's guide. Best Places Northwest, now in its incredible 17th edition, is back, doling out stars for the best restaurants and lodgings throughout Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. From Cannon Beach to Spokane to Whistler, readers will find honest recommendations on where to stay, where to eat, and what to see all along the way. Conveniently organized by highways, Best Places Northwest also includes "Three-day Tours" and locater maps for every destination; entertaining essays on history and culture; travel tips and information on special attractions; and easy-to-use icons that point out the best romantic places, places of good value, family-friendly places, and unique places that the editors think are especially choice. Out with same-old, same-old: our new crop of reviewers take a critical look at the establishments this time around and some boring old places will be dropping stars and in some cases getting dropped altogether. New sidebars add spice and new points of view: Hipster Scenes; Doggie Options; Wine Touring; the Art Beat; Best Places to Park the Car in urban Vancouver, Seattle, Portland; Celebrity Maps; Annual Sale Events (Nordstrom, REI, Niketown etc.); Excellent Malls; Science-Tech Touring; Native Peoples; Best Places to Catch a View. Whether a traveler is looking for a rustic retreat or romantic luxury, Best Places Northwest has something for every budget—and every place is independently researched and reviewed by local travel experts.
