Charleston and Savannah are such lovely destinations that they deserve 1) a guide completely independent of other area destinations such as Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach and Beaufort, and 2) a book comprehensive enough that prospective visitors get a feel for the real diversity and historical authenticity of the respective cities.
This book, unfortunately, does neither of those things. Sure, at least it's got the facts right, and the author is obviously both informed and enthusiastic, but where's the beef? It's the same old tourist destinations written with the same old tepid recommendations. In two cities where historic architecture is a major, MAJOR draw, a book like this should feature at least 20 sites from each, minimum. Listings of hotels should be as comprehensive as possible. I've yet to find a Charleston travel guide that mentions the best small boutique hotel in the city, Zero George, anywhere within its pages. A listing of Charleston restaurants that fails to mention Slightly North of Broad is, quite simply, incomplete.
So I'll get off my soapbox. This book is not going to steer you wrong, but it's not going to give you the tools to appreciate the full scope of Charleston and Savannah attractions either.
