Synopses & Reviews
Rough Guides brings our unique, irreverent coverage to the pocket-guide market, filling the need for guidebooks to individual cities and islands both on and off the beaten path. Each miniguide will be a quintessential Rough Guide -- opinionated and entertaining, laden with the full range of sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife, and accommodation options. These appealing guides will be small format and laid out in an easy-to-read, attractive two-color design. Twelve pages of full-color, gridded maps will be prominent at the back of the book and every listing will be referenced to a map coordinate for quick, on-the-go navigating.
Rough Guides strips off its flannel to get past the grunge and gourmet coffee. Discover Seattle's stunning physical setting, its burgeoning arts scene, originals sites such as the Space Needle and Gasworks Park, and the getaway islands in nearby Puget Sound. From music and microbrews to the all-mighty Microsoft, we present this Pacific Northwest gem in all its ragged glory.
