Review: Frommer's Washington State

User Review  - John Orman - Goodreads

A 2011 edition, does not have the slick paper of the Frommer's Seattle, and has no photos at all, just a bunch of plain maps, so though it is very detailed, I am only giving it 3 stars. Frommer's needs to use the format of its Seattle book in all its guidebooks! Read full review
