I bought this book for my partner who works in America a lot, and it this book was great for when he had a spare day or two over there. It's really great to flick through every now and again too, because the illustrations are lovely.

If you spend a short amount of time in many US cities, perhaps when you are working, this is the book for you. It is very well thought out and highlights sights & events to see and do that are slightly off the beaten track.

Ideal for Wanderlust 19 Dec. 2011
By HudsonNY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound
As someone who has loves travel but has limited time off, the 36 hours format is great. I know having used a few of these columns that they can mean the difference between a sort of rudderless long weekend somewhere, and a better choreographed experience. Full guidebooks are often overwhelming and a little soulless for my taste, and this is different. There are practical suggestions but the columns also convey a real sense of what it's like to be immersed in a place, and they address the reality that most people aren't able to get as much time as they'd like in a specific spot. Frankly, even if the trips aren't ones that I'll be able to make anytime soon, just sampling the book gives a vicarious experience.

Finally! 17 Dec. 2011
By Longreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound
As an avid reader of the New York Times 36 Hours feature for years, I have been waiting for this book. Not only is the guide a fun read for an armchair traveler like myself but it's the ultimate weekend planner for the literate by the literate--where even Oklahoma City can be as alluring as Paris. Though the guide leans a bit to the hip versus the vital for some destinations it makes readers intelligent insiders to every major spot in the US at the rate of about five minutes per stop. Addicting.

Great great GREAT 9 Aug. 2013
By A. Apostolov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound Verified Purchase
Got this as a present for my sister's birthday, since she loves to travel but has a job that keeps her busy for most of the time. So this is perfect for her. Her and her man went to two of the detailed cities, hopefully doing the third for their honeymoon.

Interesting and Informative 23 Feb. 2012
By I Live In New Jersey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound Verified Purchase
I have been reading the "36 Hours" columns for many years. I used to cut them out and save them but lately have used the internet to find the columns that I needed. This book makes it much easier to find what I want and I have enjoyed reading many of the columns again. Also got some new ideas for short trips.

I wish they would publish 2 other books of New York Times travel columns. The "Practical Traveler" column is packed full of useful information and would make a great book for anyone interested in travel . . . . . and why not a second volume of the "36 Hours" column featuring foreign destinations? I would buy both of them. I'd bet that many people would.

Best General Travel Book 9 Jan. 2012
By Charlotte Sometimes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Flexibound
This is really a great book for both the armchair traveler and anyone wanting to visit a city for the weekend. For the former, you get a breezy style and vicarious sense of what it's like to go. For the latter, it's an accessible way to go on a tour where all the major hot spots have been vetted for you and narrowed down to a sort of top 10 list.
