The renowned Unofficial Guides "RM" are trusted by millions of readers. No other series dares to be this candid -- the Unofficial Guides "RM" are the "Consumer Reports" of travel guides. Every hotel and attraction is rated and ranked by a team of unbiased inspectors.

Value-conscious and loaded with tips that help readers avoid wasting time and money, each guide is easy to use, with detailed descriptions of a wide range of hotels and restaurants in all price categories. Readers love the rating system used to objectively evaluate attractions, hotels, and restaurants. Handy charts demonstrate how each place stacks up against the competition.

The Unofficial Guides "RM" contain the most honest evaluations of the Disney parks on the market (with each ride rated and given a suggested age group), and offer proven strategies for enjoying them with a minimum of hassle. Unofficial "RM" Las Vegas rates and ranks the casinos, and provides useful strategies for beating the odds.

Each guide is tailored to provide convenience and insider advice on each destination, and addresses the needs of families, business travelers, and more by giving them the lowdown on what's really worth their time and money. Also included are accurate maps, plus detailed information on shopping, nightlife, sports, and more.

Look for a contemporary new cover design on this fall's list!

Winner of the Lowell Thomas Award as Best Guidebook of the Year!
