4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Guide Book 20 Aug 2009
This book offers great advice for travellers to Texas. It gives good ideas on what to do depending how long your stay is. I love Frommers for travel guides and this book keeps up their great standards.
I bought the book for Dallas but it offers more info than just this city.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read and a practical guide. 10 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having used Rough, Lonely Planet and Eyewitness guides, it was a surprise that neither did a Texas volume. Frommer's was a new name to me, so I gave it a go. Written by a Texan, there was something of the resident's rose-coloured spectacles, but I found this a refreshing change from the jaded and trying-to-be-cool-but-coming-across-as-cynical view of other guide books. The maps are okay (we took satnav too) and doubled up with local street maps. Slight weak point of the book; it's not exhaustive, sometimes it's helpful just to have a 'don't bother with this town' comment, ie for Abilene. Frommer's pointed us in the direction of the highlights in terms of galleries, two places to eat and a couple of awesome hotels; it also recommended a stay at a dude ranch - we are game for anything and it was a fantastic idea, something we would have probably avoided otherwise. Y'all have a good day now.
