We've vacationed on the Gulf Coast numerous time before. This book with its chatty style explores this wonderful area, suggesting many hidden treasures. The combination of location description and sightseeing highlights along with restaurant suggestions bring us a step closer to our next vacation. Some of the locations we've visited before; the text describes well those attractions and sites. However, we now have a list of many new places to visit, many of which you wouldn't find from just vacationing in the area. I read this book on a rather cold English spring day; the book soon brought back happy memories and thoughts for exciting plans for our next visit. An excellent guide book, the author's written style more than makes up for a lack of photographs.
