Rediscovering America: Exploring the Small Towns of Virginiaby William J. Burnham
Synopses & Reviews
Return to a time when life was simpler. Discover classic river towns, mountain retreats and coastal fishing villages, small towns where you can still shop on Main Street, where the hardware store and the bookstore are not part of a national chain, old buildings are restored and historic places are preserved. The Burnhams, also co-authors of The Virginia Handbook, have discovered and explored scores of these delightful towns. Destinations include Onancock, on Virginia's Eastern Shore; Irvington, a hip town built around The Tides resort; Strasburg and Front Royal, towns rich in Shenandoah Valley history; as well as coastal towns such as St. Michael's, Crisfield and St. Mary's. The places featured in this book have charming inns and B&Bs, in addition to good, locally owned restaurants. There are enough attractions to satisfy any traveler, but there is also space and time to tarry, to sit in a park or on a shaded bench and watch life pass by.
The towns are organized by region and the authors describe each one in detail: how to get there; what makes it a great town; its history; what to see and do there; where to eat; where to sleep. Color photos.
This book covers every island in detail. Dining, shopping, where to stay, what to see - all offered by an author who has been visiting the Caribbean for years. In-margin icons allow you to see at a glance where hotels, restaurants, sightseeing, beaches, and other topics are covered. Maps
