Brandishing the motto “We tell it like it is,” a team of writers diverse in age, background, and interest brings experience-driven travel suggestions to the forefront in this new series. Entries are arranged by region, with maps and general info (as well as related book, movie, podcast, and social media suggestions) before suggestions for specific areas and experiences. From a high-tech-focused jaunt in San Francisco to hippie hot spots in Sonoma and modern-design landmarks in Palm Springs, trip notes offer when-to-go suggestions, dining tips, and don’t-miss-this commentary. “Best of the Rest” reviews conclude the main sections. Some activities skew toward adults, but there are plenty of all-ages options. An index helps target specific interests.
VERDICT Compact, well-organized, and light enough to slip in a backpack. Expect this to circulate well.
