We are off on a New England trip shortly so needed a comprehensive review guide of the area. Recently I took the liberty of going into WH Smiths and going down their line of New England guides - Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, DK, Fodors etc and my verdict was that this was the best on offer. My methodology was to look up several places in the area I am quite familiar with and to check the accuracy and coverage.

Frommers came out on top as it is very comprehensive and as a result long - 660 pages plus. It covered all the places I would have expected and a lot more besides. For the places I knew, it described their main attractions sufficiently for it to point you in the right direction for a visit. It did suffer from the drawback of most of this type of guide ie there was limited coverage of places to stay for each location. I thought everyone headed straight over to Tripadvisor for this info these days! Also the places to eat listed were extremely limited by space restraints and, in my opinion, did not necessarily cover the best value and quality dining. However, again that is almost a universal drawback of this kind of guide.

If you are visiting a new area, this sort of guide is a must have. Even if you have visited before there is a lot you are likely to have missed. However, if the area you are visiting is limited geographically eg Boston, then you will really do better to get a specialist city guide. For a general guide of New England I do think Frommers has the edge over the others though.

I bought this book with the intention of planning a fly-drive holiday to New England and that is exactly what I am doing, now with Frommer's help. Not really knowing the area I am working my way through the book in conjunction with planning a driving route, finding potential places to visit and stay. The chapters are easy to read and informative and the maps are clear and concise. The only very small gripe is that a few colour pictures would be nice, to help visualise what is being described and break up the text. A good buy and will be a holiday companion for a future trip

Used in conjunction with the internet this guide was used as a very accessible and comprehensive reference work from which a three week motoring vacation in the fall was planned. As always, the more background research you do the better - or be prepared for example, to sit in a four hour traffic jam in Concorde on St. Columbus day!

As I always say when reviewing a Frommer's guide, they are the only ones we use for America & Canada, as they are so well written & extensive in scope..

HASH(0x8dab83b4) out of 5 stars Extremely Valuable 14 May 2000
By Jill U. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have never bought a Frommer's Guide Book before, and now after I purchased this one, I am a loyal customer! I found it extremely insightful as to the most quaint New England towns to visit, which are the best routes to get there, practical information on the restaurants in town as well as their price ranges for any type of budgets - as well as advice on the many different bed and breakfasts that are available. This book caters to all travel styles, preferences and budgets. I planned most of my vacation with this book because it had phone numbers, prices, excellent directions... I could probably go on and on. Definitely a must for anyone who is traveling and not familiar with the area. It's like talking to someone who has lived in New England their whole life and is on hand to give you all the practical information you need to have a successful and fun/relaxing vacation. As if the book weren't great enough - they give you a wonderful full-sized pullout map that has all the towns marked on it which are mentioned in the book.

HASH(0x8dab8408) out of 5 stars A travel guide for readers 15 Oct. 2002
By tara leonard - Published on
Format: Paperback
Let's face it; most travel books are a glance-and-go proposition. Most of them do a passable job providing key information, but they aren't exactly a pleasure to read. Frommer's New England 2003 changes all that. Not only are the cititations clear, correct, and complete, many of them are laugh-out-loud funny or wickedly sly. At the end of a busy day on the road, I actually found myself reading the guide for fun (while happily settled in one of the recommended accommodations).A literate guide obviously written by folks in the know.

We bought the Mobile book, the "Everything" book and this book. Of the three, this had the most detailed information. The maps are not great but the rest of the book makes up for that. The regional grouping was a great help.

HASH(0x90547564) out of 5 stars A limited tour of New England 13 April 2009
By Stephen Senzer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book based on some favorable reviews. Several of the other prominent guides for this area got rather bad reviews. I was very disappointed to find that this book is very limited or specialized in some areas and lacking in others. (I live in NW CT and know the NE states fairly well.) We are planning a trip to Mass,.orth shore, not an area I know well. This book was very lacking in info about accommodations and restaurants in the entire area. It is useless for our trip. But if I wanted to go to Nantucket, and area with which I have some knowledge, it tells me about lots of expensive restaurants. I can't believe how little it tells me about New Haven, and Hartford might almost not exist. What were the weriters and publishers thinking? I am thinking I should return the book to Amazon.

HASH(0x8dab88d0) out of 5 stars Skimpy on New Hampshire 30 May 2007
By Edward J Cunion Jr - Published on
Format: Paperback
This travel guide is heavily weighted toward Massachussetts and very thin on New Hampshire, and somewhat thin on Maine. In hindsight consider reviewing some of the other New England Guides such as Fodor's and Lonely Planet before considering this one. A bit of a disappointment.
