    Very Informative

    Our family takes one big vacation each summer and I have always used Fodor's. One of their best features is they are up front with you and tell you about where to be careful and the seedy parts of town etc. Being someone who grew up and lives in a very large city I can appreciate that information. For hotels - it's very informative and I paired their information with hotels.com and was able to get a great hotel deal as well.
