The book is not easy to read. I realize that it is a thick book, but I wish there were more places listed in each state.It is a place to begin.

The author seemed to avoid the problem she had in her other "1000 Places...", of too many hotels, but I was annoyed by how many entries there were for scenic mountain ranges and artsy towns. There were plenty of interesting listings, but I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first one.

I have to say I was a little disappointed in this book. When I think of places that I absolutely must see, fancy hotels and expensive restaurants do not top my list. Having said that, though, there are still many places in this book that I did not know about and are now on my personal list of "must-see". I still feel that there are a lot of places that I am going to have to find out about elsewhere, but I'm sure there are people out there who would be glad to have the hotel and restaurant information as well.

Was somewhat disappointed, as most of the suggestions and ideas are at the upper end of the cost scales, bed and breakfasts for $425 per night, etc. Very little in the way of sites and attractions. Restaurants same thing. Also by the time you really read the book and then try to check out some of the places online, they are no longer in operation.

Every spring when my husband and I start to feel the need to get out of town for a few days and take a road trip, I pull out this book and daydream.
