Reader's Digest Association, 1995 - Travel - 352 pages
The 136 circle tours in 'See the USA the easy way' are designed to be taken for as long as you choose -- a weekend, a week, or even longer. You'll start with an 'anchor site' -- usually a major city, but sometimes a national park or a small town -- and follow the map to the most interesting places in one of six regions; historic towns, gardens, parks, lakes and river, nature preserves, scenic drives, colorful small-town festivals, and more. A blue ribbon on the map for each tour traces your route and includes a number for each of the places where you'll stop; the number is keyed to a text entry that describes what you'll see. As it takes you along the highways of all 50 states, [the book] helps you avoid many of the inconveniences that sometimes come with travel. Hundreds of tips, each tailor-made for a specific attraction, tell you when to make reservations, how to save money, and what to look for, along with a host of other hints to make your trip troublefree. These tips, set off in easy-to-spot red type, appear in every tour. The Travel Advisor (p. 10) gives you the information you need to make your trip a success -- how to pack, find travel bargains, take a break from driving, and stay safe and healthy on the road. The Travel Directory (p. 328) contains lists that help you find the kinds of attractions that may interest you most, from nature sites to grand houses; Included are charts with the addresses and phone numbers of state tourism bureaus and national parks.
