A pocket-sized, time-saving guide with plenty of colour photographs and illustrations, which includes the top ten of everything you could imagine from historic sites, to bars and the best hotels on any budget.
An American equivalent to the Rough Guide with practical tips for the independent traveller on a budget; useful for planning your trip as the first 70 pages are dedicated to the best of Texas and suggested itineraries.
A beautifully-presented guide for the mid to upper-range traveller with gorgeous colour photographs, well-written local information on the culture and history and wonderful touches including literary extracts from local authors.
A neat, beautifully-produced guide from Wallpaper magazine with their usual recommendations for the coolest bars, the chicest hotels and the best shopping. Also includes a guide to the city's most iconic buildings which includes the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
A handy guide with a clear, fold-out street plan of the four major districts of Las Vegas and a geographical map of the Grand Canyon. Each map is accompanied by recommendations for restaurants, bars, theatres and shopping or, in the case of the Grand Canyon, trails and the Grand Canyon skywalk.
A slim guide to Las Vegas, best suited to a short stay, arranged thematically (Restaurants, Hotels, Arts, Entertainments and Weddings) and alphabetically within each section. Includes a guide to savvy gambling and contains a good fold-out street map.
An American, practical guide similar in look and feel to the Rough Guide series which is updated annually. Includes a pullout map, approximately 50 pages on the Grand Canyon National Park and a chapter on the Navajo Nations.
A vibrant guide with plenty of photographs and bird's eye graphics. Perfectly suited to the middle to upper-range sightseer, less useful for a backpacker looking for listings and more practical information.
A backpacker's guide to Santa Barbara northwards. It includes Yosemite, the central valley and 40 pages on San Francisco, north to the redwoods. Good for basic practical information but lacking on cultural and historical detail.
An American publication, updated annually and a good choice for the budget traveller. Similar to the Rough Guide in look and feel, it includes a pullout map, listings for hotels and restaurants and plenty of local knowledge.
