Another good guide from DK,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: New England (Flexibound)
I have to say, I was hoping to like this guide as soon as I ordered it. We have had guides from DK before, and choose them over the alternatives (e.g. Rough Guide) because their approach is a lot more readable. This guide is no exception.
There is a nice balance between local history and modern context for each of the places. The pictures/illustrations give some more information than you get just reading about the places, which is the approach most guides take.
I suppose the compromise here is that there is less listings information than in a Rough Guide, but I feel this is a sensible way to do it since pages and pages of accommodation and restaurants are not that interesting - plus TripAdvisor etc have replaced that function of a traditional guidebook in my mind.
Overall really happy with the book and would recommend this, and others in the series, to potential travellers.
