Book Description

29 Oct 2004 Frommer's Complete Guides (Book 54)
Completely updated every year (unlike most of the competition), Frommer′s Arizona 2004 features gorgeous color photos of the state′s spectacular scenery. Extremely detailed and personally researched, this is the most reliable and in–depth guide you can buy for an Arizona adventure. From world–class golf resorts to authentic dude ranches, from stunning Southwestern–style B&Bs; to rustic lodges and secluded campgrounds, our authors have chosen the very best places to stay throughout the state, in all price ranges. They′ll show you the most scenic drives, and take you outdoors for desert hikes, superb golf, thrilling white–water rafting, horseback riding, and more. Serious shoppers will appreciate our insider advice on finding the best of local art galleries and the most intriguing regional crafts, rugs, and pottery. And of course, you′ll discover where to find the best Mexican and Southwestern dining, from elegant resort restaurants to roadside joints that offer great regional specialties and a mean margarita. With Frommer′s in hand, you′ll see all the highlights, from glorious vistas of the Grand Canyon to the fanciful red–rock formations of Sedona, from the eerie monoliths of Monument Valley to the silent splendors of the desert. You′ll even get a free color fold–out map and an online directory that makes trip–planning a snap.

4.0 out of 5 stars My travel Bible during my last trip 15 Oct 2005
By Nicole Bradshaw - Published on Amazon.com
When my husband and I booked our 10-day trip to Arizona, we bought alot of guidebooks to help us make decisions about our itinerary, our hotel choices, and the attractions and restaurants we wanted to visit. But when we actually went on the trip, this guidebook is the only one that we referred to, time and again.

The guidebook gave us GREAT recommendations for both restaurants and attractions, and it also contained some very handy maps. We kept the book in the glove compartment of our rental car, and we used it daily to plan activities and reach destinations.

I only have one major gripe. The guidebook did not talk specifically about driving conditions along different roads. For example, the book mentioned that Jerome was a town not to be missed. So, we fueled up the car and headed out to Jerome. WELL, to get to Jerome, you have to drive up very winding roads, with sheer cliff drop-offs on your right, and you can only go about 20 miles per hour due to the sharp curves and your fear of oncoming traffic. While the route was definitely scenic, it was harrowing for someone from the deep south, where there ARE no mountains, and everything is flat.

Other than that, I thought the book was great. It prepared me well for the "touristy" nature of Sedona, and it also gave good tips on how to avoid crowds at the Grand Canyon. Its section on Phoenix was very informative and helpful as well. I thought this book was a great tool for planning and enjoying my vacation in Arizona.
