    Great little road trips

    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!

    Great travel info

    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.

    Not worth it (even for 99 cents)

    Only 17 pages of extremely superficial information. Avoid.

    I Don't Like Their Approach On Travel

    This book was a nice try at getting a few "off the beaten path" destinations some publicity, but I don't think it's selling me at all. I've been to several of the places on the Heritage Music Trail, and they make it sound WAY more desirable than what it really is! Stick with AAA if you want good travel ideas that really are fun. I can't complain though...this was a free book, and it didn't have any errors like some of these free books have. Good trips for when you're really bored I guess.

    Although I'll probably never be able to go any of these places, it was fun reading about them.

    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.

    Why do I have to give my card number if it's free?

    hi!
    Does anybody know why I have to give my card number if this book it's for free? (at least that's what the website says!)
    I don't know where to ask! There isn't any e-mail or something to get information about that!
    Thanks

    Liked it

    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.

    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.
