1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing format 8 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not in the usual format for LP guides . It's as if a little amount of information has been spread out to fill a whole book. Dreadful to navigate , hate it.

Each area of Boston is small, yet the guide is split by areas rather than topic eg eating, entertainment, and it is diffucult to relate one to another, and to work out a days plan. There is a section called shopping which lists best 3-6 picks for certain items, by name only with apage refernce. Maps don't always have the explanatory lists on the same page as the map, meaning turning to 3 pages three times to check out listed restaurents etc.. As the type is so spread out, and some times bulked out with guff, that many pages end up olisting only 5-8 restaurents or sights etc.

Am using the US country guides to plan. And am tempted to take those and rely on local info when there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boston Lonely Planet Guide review 2 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I will not be going to Boston until June but the book looks as if it will give me lots of ideas of places to go and ways to spend my time there. I have used Lonely Planet guides before: they are much better presented than a lot of other guide books.
