- Visiting the USA including Practical info (18 pp) - USA at a Glance including history (36 pp) - The different regions of the USA divided into 14 regions (Florida, Texas and California are regions unto themselves) (700 pp) - Index (Good, but in small print) (30 pp).
The 51 states (counting Washington DC) are therefore allocated just under 14 pp each on average. This is sufficient to tell you what the important things to see are, to include some town maps and a few cut-away drawings such as of the White House; and even some recommendations for accommodation and restaurants. I have used it for the planning of a one-month trip. It is inadequate for any very detailed planning (if needed) or for the actual visit. The USA is a very large country and more specialised regional guides, e.g. DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: California and DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Southwest USA & Las Vegas if applicable, should be taken. At 1 kg it is not an impossible burden, but it should have done its job before you set out and is thus now redundant.
Iam a great fan of DK Eyewitness Travel Guides as they are so easy to dip into. I have yet to visit the USA and will probably start with California and the Western national Parks but decided to get an overall view of what is on offer on the other side of the Atlantic and was not disappointed.
Getting to know the US from Coast to Coast, visiting and learning from its most important places and cities is definitely a must for all of those who love travelling! As always, DK Eyewitness Travel Guides are some of the best! Lots of important info', excellent pictures, loads of interesting details and curiosities to let you know about! Great!
