Weekends on the road: The ultimate travel guide to the USA and Canada

To travel in North America is to face a delicious quandary: over these vast spaces with so many riches, from glittering cities to eccentric small towns and heart-stoppingly beautiful mountains and plains, how to experience as much as possible in limited time? One answer is the quick hit, a jam-packed adventure that delivers a full sense of a single place’s opportunities and personalities over a well-plotted two-night stay.

The New York Times has been offering up dream weekends with practical itineraries in its popular weekly "36 Hours" column since 2002. The many expert contributors, experienced travelers, and accomplished writers have brought careful research, insider’s knowledge, and a sense of fun to hundreds of cities and destinations, always with an eye to getting the most out of a short trip. Want to read what Sam Sifton suggests in his beloved borough of Brooklyn, or David Carr in Minneapolis, Mark Bittman in Death Valley, or Ariel Kaminer in lower Manhattan? Here is where to do it, with full-color photographs to entice you and handy maps to guide you.

In this book, the Times and TASCHEN bring together updated and new versions of "36 Hours" columns for 150 U.S. and Canadian locations, from the great urban centers on everyone’s travel list to surprising locales with undiscovered character and charm. The paths lead to fashionable clubs in Manhattan, blues joints in the Mississippi Delta, architectural treasures tucked in the Pennsylvania hills, the French America of Quebec, the seaside cliffs and Hollywood cool of California, and well beyond. For a taste of adventure and a veritable journey throughout the continent, explore 36 Hours in America.

    As someone who has loves travel but has limited time off, the 36

    As someone who has loves travel but has limited time off, the 36 hours format is great. I know having used a few of these columns that they can mean the difference between a sort of rudderless long weekend somewhere, and a better choreographed experience. Full guidebooks are often overwhelming and a little soulless for my taste, and this is different. There are practical suggestions but the columns also convey a real sense of what it's like to be immersed in a place, and they address the reality that most people aren't able to get as much time as they'd like in a specific spot. Frankly, even if the trips aren't ones that I'll be able to make anytime soon, just sampling the book gives a vicarious experience. Gorgeous photographs, perfect itineraries, 5 stars!
