I was hoping to find a review that listed the trips contained but couldn't find one! They are: 1. Virginia 2. Vermont 3. Minnesota 4. Northern California (bay area) 5. Pacific Northwest (Oregon to Vancouver, BC) Based on the one nearest to me (California) and having travelled in Vermont, these hit some great places! I definitely want to try the California road trip to check out some old favorites and, hopfully, find some new ones! This is a great freebie!

We love to do road trips and have put together many of our own "see America" trips. We also like food, wine, pubs and museums. This book provides many combinations of trips that will make the micro-brewery and foodie readers happy as well as the hard core historians.

Only 17 pages of extremely superficial information. Avoid.

It consists of mostly scenery with heavy emphasis on organic, home grown food and restaurants, and bed and breakfast inns. Attention is also given to local micro-breweries, including one tour completely dedicated to such a pusuit. One thing bothered me though--- on the Wisconsin tour, it states that the Mustard Museum is in Middleton, but it's not. It's in Mount Horeb, which is also the Troll capital of the USA . Being mostly driving tours, this little detail throws the validity of the entire book into question.

Yes, it's only 37 pages, but it's free. I liked this book; it gave me some ideas of what to see along the way. Liked the play and detours. Will buy others in this series.

Save your money. I found better advise and recommendations on Trip Advisor and Yelp.

The book is an interesting take on the places particularly in the US. It has various accounts on what you can do on a particular place as well as getting on it the best way. This could really be helpful for readers specially the US has a lot of places to go and interesting parts to see.
