Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This is the book that launched the best-selling Best Places regional guidebook series in 1975. Now in its 16th edition, Best Places Northwest has been substantially revised with fresh reviews and new content. From Oregons coastal gem Cannon Beach to enchanting Seattle to skiing center Whistler in British Columbia, the book offers candid reviews of where to stay, where to eat, and what to see along the way. Conveniently organized by highways, it includes "Three-day Tours" and locater maps for every destination; entertaining essays on history and culture; travel tips and information on special attractions; and easy-to-use icons that point out the best romantic places, places of good value, family-friendly destinations, and unique diversions. New sidebars on such topics as Hipster Scenes, Doggie Options, Celebrity Maps, the Art Beat, Native Peoples, and much more add spice. Catering to every budget, Best Places Northwest lives up to the Seattle Times description of it as “the Big Daddy of regional guidebooks.”

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, February 5, 2007 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
I discovered Best Places as a newcomer to Washington State. I was attracted to the guidebook because it is researched and written by locals, covers small towns to large cities throughout Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, and is easy to use. [The guidebook has a helpful table of contents, is well-indexed, uses a rating system of 0 to 4 stars, price range from $ to $$$$, plus "helpful icons" for family fun, good value, romantic & uniquely Northwest.] From the first trip guided by BP, I was hooked, and never make travel plans without first consulting the latest edition of BP! Several of my favorite restaurants, B&Bs and hotels are "discoveries" courtesy of BP-- Shelburne Inn, Seaview, Wash., Pepper Sisters, Bellingham, Wash., and Grateful Bread Bakery in Pacific City, Or. to name but a few. [A summer Oregon Coast trip just isn't the same unless we have stopped at Grateful Bread!!]. When I see a Best Places sticker on the door of an establishment, I know to expect good things. For Northwest travel information, Best Places outshines Fodors, Frommers and all the others in my opinion!
