For travel season, for long summer weekends, for whenever the mood strikes to pack up the car and set out to discover a new piece of America (and Canada!), 1,000 Places to See in the USA & Canada is a map to all the unique and wonderful places just around the corner: Sail the Maine Windjammers out of Camden. Explore the gold-mining trails in Alaska's Denali wilderness. Collect exotic shells on the beaches of Captiva. Play tennis the way it was meant to be--on grass--at the lavish Victorian Newport Casino. Take a barbecue tour of Kansas City--Arthur Bryant's to Gates to Snead's. There's the ice hotel in Quebec, the stalacpipe organ in Virginia, out-of-the-way Civil War battlefields, dude ranches and cowboy poetry readings, and what to do in Louisville after the Derby's over.
More than 150 places are highlighted as family-friendly, and indices in the back organize the book by subject--wilderness, dining, beaches, world-class museums, sports, festivals, and more.
