The guide is personally researched by longtime residents, and it's full of their candid opinions about the best their state has to offer. They've inspected countless accommodations, and have selected the very best places to stay throughout the state: lavish golf resorts, spas, stunning B&Bs, beachfront motels, and Yosemite's best campgrounds.

You'll even get a color fold-out map and an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!
