Lonely Planet Estados Unidos [With Map]

PDF EBook by Sara Benson

EBook Description

Lonely Planet produces guidebooks that are useful. Lonely Planet Estados Unidos [With Map] PDF EBook This one tackles a country—the U. S. A. Obviously, there are tradeoffs. One gets remarkable breadth of coverage—from sea to shining sea plus Alaska plus Hawaii. However, one sacrifices depth. For instance, Illinois. Chicago gets plenty of space for this volume—well over twenty pages. But there are entire guidebooks that focus just on Chicago. And downstate Illinois has very little space devoted to it. But that is a part of the tradeoff. A person buying this book is going to understand that breadth of coverage is an objective—not depth. And, on those terms, this volume suffices.

Again, take Illinois (my home state). Chicago. Where to eat? The Near North Side? The Billy Goat Tavern (remember the SNL cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger scene? This is based on the Billy Goat Tavern). The Loop? Cafecito and Oasis are recommendations. There is also a listing of places to see, such as the Art Institute, the Magnificent Mile,Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo, and so on.

Interesting features: scenic routes (see page 9 for a listing), including the remnants of Route 66 or Pacific Coast highways; download; weird and wonderful (including Roswell and the alleged UFO conspiracy); beauty (e.g., the Rocky Mountains); urban scenes. Maps of cities are detailed and useful, although type face can be pretty small. There is a section on national parks, too.

But the main focus is a region by region, state by state view of where to eat, where to sleep, what to do, a little bit about the culture and history. At the end of the book (well over 1,000 pages long, by the way) are discussions of transportation, a directory of accommodations, and so on.

All in all, a useful volume.
