Editorial Reviews

Atlanta Journal & Constitution
Fodor's and Frommer's, take notice. A formidable competitor has just entered the travel guide arena. The new "National Geographic Traveler" series comes with the winning formula of in-depth reporting and breathtaking photography that have long made National Geographic Society's monthly magazine a favorite of armchair adventurers.
Los Angeles Times
The National Geographic Traveler paperback guidebook series is rich with photography, maps and historical context.
Washington Times
National Geographic's new series of travel books, "National Geographic Traveler," debuts with well-written volumes?The frequent bold headlines make it easy to find information quickly, and the many quality photographs create an enticing visual tour.
Library Journal
These two new titles to join the "National Geographic Traveler" family contain a fountain of information on the destinations covered. Detailed color maps guide the traveler on walking or driving tours, describing must-see sites along the way. There are historical descriptions and informational tidbits, such as the two-page definition of Art Deco found in Miami & the Keys. Each section contains visitor contact numbers and addresses. The end of each guide contains a listing of hotels, motels, restaurants, entertainment, and other activities available. Of course, mention must be made of the hundreds of beautiful National Geographic-quality color photographs peppered throughout each volume. In short, these books are everything a travel guide should be with that special National Geographic touch. Although a bit pricey, they are the ideal size for taking along on a trip. Recommended for all libraries with travel sections.--Sandra Knowles, Henderson Cty. P.L., NC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
