Travel guides are like carpenters’ tools, or chefs’ knives. Each has its purpose, and part of the trick in using one is knowing which to pick.
I’m also a big fan of Moon guides, which offer a nice hybrid of the two extremes.
That’s why I was excited to discover that the company is expanding its U.S. offerings in a big way. I just got its new books on Tampa & St. Petersburg, and Florida’s Gulf Coast. These are areas that are often overlooked by the larger publishers.
And Moon has plenty more coming. This year it will release more than two dozen new titles. Many will be of interest to U.S. coastal travelers; Look for new books on Virginia’s Coast, Wisconsin’s Door County, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the North Carolina Coast, the Jersey Shore, Baltimore, Cleveland, and the Olympic Peninsula.
