My first travel review!!

Of course, this is a National Geographic boo, so it’s bound to be good 🙂 Now, that being said, here are my thoughts:

Pro – both US and Canada are covered here.

Con – very brief for each state. If you are looking for lots of ideas or details for a specific state/ area, you’re going to want to find another resource. This is a quick look to start you on your way. An idea book.

Pro – if you are looking for quieter, lower populated areas (yes, we are!) this book mentions several.

Pro – fun facts and great ideas for road trips!

US $24.95 Retail*

**Now, just so you know, I bought this from Amazon for considerably cheaper. It was also listed for purchase for Kindle (yup, I’m a Kindle gal 🙂 )so that is another option. I’m always good for trying to save $$ on books!!

Overall, pretty good. Real good for beginner travel adventurers. Solid four stars!
