This summer we plan on using Off The Beaten Path as a guidebook for our ongoing Explore Minnesota family vacation; we're going to explore those off beat places that are close to home but we've missed or never knew existed.

    5. A huge, coffee table book with beautiful photos. Is alphabetical and covers each state. Is heavy laden with outdoor places to visit- hence the "uncrowded" part.

    6. When I was a kid, every summer my folks would load all five of us kids up in the station wagon and we'd head from Mississippi to Wisconsin for two weeks at my grandparents' house where we would visit with relatives of all sorts and ages. It was a long two day drive and it didn't allow time for sightseeing. A couple of times, they made the decision to take three days to make the trip, so we could stop and see something other than interstate highways and corn fields, but stopping was the exception [...]

    7. This is not a typical travel guide. It's a coffee table book with lots of interesting information on exactly what the title says "off the beaten path interesting places" in each of the 50 states. We haven't been to all 50 states but we like to find interesting places that may not appear in typical guidebooks, so the first thing I did was go through each state and see where we been. Then I went state by state. This book was on display in my local library an what drew me originally to the book was [...]

For popular places, I've realized that it's best to avoid the peak seasons. A smaller crowd makes the driving easier and finding lodging more easily, especially the cheaper accommodations. And allows yo [...]

Each description provides a brief location along with a website and phone number to contact for more information. At the end of each state is a column providing a listing of random seasonal events for the state.T [...]

    10. I read the North Carolina version and it was great finding places in the Outer Banks to go our third week. I'd read it again

    12. I consult this book very often since I first purchased it, because the USA is my yearly vacation destination.

    13. Fun places across the U.S. We've been to most of the Caifornia sites, but will use this book to plan future road trips.

    14. I'd like to visit every place listed in this book. Great reference book for the retired who wants to travel and see the sites.
