Overview

This is the book that launched the best-selling Best Places regional guidebook series in 1975. Now in its 16th edition, Best Places Northwest has been substantially revised with fresh reviews and new content. From Oregon’s coastal gem Cannon Beach to enchanting Seattle to skiing center Whistler in British Columbia, the book offers candid reviews of where to stay, where to eat, and what to see along the way. Conveniently organized by highways, it 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 destinations, and unique diversions. New sidebars on such topics as Hipster Scenes, Doggie Options, Celebrity Maps, the Art Beat, Native Peoples, and much more add spice. Catering to every budget, Best Places Northwest lives up to the Seattle Times’ description of it as “the Big Daddy of regional guidebooks.”

Editorial Reviews

How could they make it better? The 2004 edition of Best Places Northwest received unanimous critical raves: The Seattle Post-Intelligencer hailed it as "the region's undisputed heavyweight champ of guidebooks," and the Vancouver Sun called it "the bible of discriminating travelers." But the 16th edition, expertly curated by Sally Farhat, exceeds every expectation. More than 60 percent of the content of this hefty paperback is new. The listings, conveniently organized by highway, include nearly 900 restaurants, 555 places to stay, and numerous suggestions for three-day tours, romantic getaways, art expeditions, and more.
