Overview

Frommer's is the name you can trust for great travel bargains. Our acclaimed $-a-Day series is not for backpackers who want to rough it, but for travelers with taste, who've outgrown their student lifestyle and demand comfortable accommodations and good, authentic meals at a reasonable price. Each guide is loaded with detailed listings for mom-and-pop motels, B&Bs, comfortable guesthouses, good-value bistros, and ethnic restaurants. You'll find a bargain-hunter's shopping guide, affordable fun after dark, and complete sightseeing coverage, including the best things to do for free (or almost).

Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. Every Frommer's $-a-Day Guide is up-to-date, with dozens of color maps and exact prices for every single expense, so you can accurately plan each day's budget. Frommer's knows that affordable travel doesn't have to mean making sacrifices. It's about having fun and getting a great deal!

New York is notorious for its high prices. The answer? New York from $80 a Day, which makes the Big Apple affordable for anyone. Unlike most of the competition, it's thoroughly updated every year to keep on top of the latest changes in this fast-paced city.

The guide is meticulously researched by our expert author, who has uncovered the city's best bargains. You'll rely on her candid, indepth reviews of the city's best bargain accommodations, from rooms in charming B&Bs to spacious family suites, plus her tips on finding great weekend packages. Our author will show you incredible deals on dining, from the city's best pizza to affordable fixed-price dinners in French bistros.

We'll show you all the sights, plus the best things to do for free, from strolling Central Park to attending a TV talk-show taping. Rely on us for a complete shopper's guide to affordable fashion and housewares, collectibles, used books, cheap CDs, and more. We'll also show you how to enjoy New York's legendary nightlife for less, with details on free Lincoln Center concerts, discounts tickets for Broadway shows, great neighborhood bars, and hip music clubs with low cover charges. You'll even get a free color fold-out map and an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!
