Description

Product Description

The all-in-one trip planner and travel guide-now totally revised and updated-will steer you down the most scenic road every time.

The all-in-one trip planner and travel guide-now totally revised and updated-will steer you down the most scenic road every time. From Florida''s Road to Flamingo to Hawaii''s Oahu Coastal Loop . . . from British Columbia''s Sea to Sky Highway to Cape Cod''s Sandy Shores . . . each featured road trip is pictured in stunning full color and described in vivid text, keyed to an easy-to-follow newly revised map. Whether you choose a drive in a far corner of the continent or a back road in your own state, this book is your ticket to North America''s most beautiful byways.

Drives are grouped in four pictured-packed sections-Western, Mountain, Central, and Eastern states and provinces-and are accompanied by detailed, easy-to-use maps. New drives featuring some of Canada''s most stunning destinations have been added. As a bonus, handy Trip Tip sidebars include:

  • Mileage
  • best season to travel
  • nearby attractions
  • special events
  • "learn more" contact information including website addresses
A special feature called Star Routes offers thumbnail sketches of shorter but especially scenic roads located in the same region as the main tours. Additional boxes highlight distinctive characteristics of the areas, including local plants, animals, customs, foods, and a variety of historical events.

Whether on the road or in the comfort of your easy chair, this newly revised Reader''s Digest travel guide will be a welcome companion.

Review

"Obviously, some drives are created more equal than others. But Reader''s Digest does show that scenic beauty is endemic to every part of the country. Even if you can''t hit the road and drive them all, this updated version...uses gorgeous color photos to show you what you could see if you did. And each drive is accompanied by a helpful map to let your imagination guide you along the way."
( The Oregonian)

"Often times when we are on a cross-country trip, we use the interstate highway system for most of the trip. Unfortunately, this causes us to miss out on a lot of the scenic beauty that America offers. There is a book published by Readers Digest entitled The Most Scenic Drives in America that can be used to deal with this problem. This book contains 120 scenic drives throughout the entire country."
(-RV Directions (rvdirections.info))

"A one-of-a-kind trip planner, a superb on-the-road reference, and an album of 400 photographs. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, here are 120 outstanding drives that show the magnificence of America-each with detailed, easy-to-follow maps. Taking a drive in the country has been popular since horse-and-buggy days. But while the road trip itch is as strong as ever, scenic drives get scarcer year by year. The answer is a collection of the 120 loveliest drives in the U.S., providing maps and tours (with sites along the way itemized and lovingly described), trip length, when to go, nearby attractions, and local information sources."
(-Hotel Miami Beach (hotelmiamibeach.org))

I adore this book! I found it at a library and have since bought it for myself and several friends.

Each drive lays out a series of destinations in order, along with recommending little stops and side trips along the way. The thing is, it''s easy to go on Google and find the quickest way to get from place to place, but it is hard to figure out the BEST way to get there. I use this book to start planning trips, then go back to it once I''ve determined destinations in order to figure out my specific route and make sure I haven''t missed any in-between stops. I tend to use just pieces of their overall suggestions, but they are great starting points.

My only criticism is that all the maps are by state or by region, sometimes so zoomed in that you can''t really figure out how one route relates in time or distance to other routes. I desperately wish they had included a map of the whole country with all the routes so I could judge how much distance was between different suggested routes. More than once I''ve found myself Googling random cities to see if there is any overlap or possibility to combine routes, only to discover that they are several hours apart.

This edition is defective and i hope the editors read this review and fix it, because if they do it will be a great book:
The problem with this kindle edition is they have mixed some states in their central states region map and content and in the eastern states map and content resulting that all those roads in those states have mixed numbers that do not coincide with the roads description:
The states that show repeated in both regions are:
IN, OH, KY, TN, MS, AL and MS. All of those have wrong roads description numbers and you can not find the road trip by the number, sometimes you can just not find it at all. You will have to spent an incredible amount of time figuring out which on it is making it unusable. When you are busy on the road you will not have the time to figure those things out. I did not have the time to check the rest of the book to see if there are more errors or try more regions. I had to return it.
Hopefully this gets fixed by the editors because this book is expensive compared with similar great books like the "National Geographic guide to Scenic Highways and Byways": I have that too and is greatly useful with no errors.

Since we''re thinking of going farther afield with our travel trailer, I thought this book might give us some ideas. Not only did it give us ideas, but now we want to get out and GO! Plus, it made me realize that, as much as we love visiting areas overseas, there is so much more to see right here in our own backyard. Some of the drives noted in this book have places to see I''ve never heard of. Whether you''re RVing or just taking short (or long) road trips, you really need to check out this book.

This review will focus on the differences between two different ebook versions of this book. Both versions of the book are available for the Kindle at Amazon, but there are some significant differences between the versions. The first version is listed as "The Most Scenic Drives in America, Newly Revised and Updated. I will call this the Kindle version. The second version of the book is listed as "The Most Scenic Drives in America, Newly Revised and Updated (Enhnaced Edition). I will refer to this as the enhanced version.

My comparison is based on a purchased copy of the enhanced version, and a sample copy of the Kindle version. The comparison is based on using the Kindle app on an iPad Pro.

Before the purchase, I saw the specs for the two books differed, but without being a Kindle connoisseur, I did not know how these differences would impact the use of the books. The notable features included in the Kindle but not the enhanced versions are: Word Wise, Screen Reader, Page Flip, and Enhanced Typesetting. The only unique feature mentioned on the enhanced version was Audio and Video.

A free sample was not available for the enhanced version, but it appears that it can be returned within 7 days, so I proceeded with the purchase. What follows is the differences I noticed between the versions.

Table of Contents
The enhanced version has a table of contents, the Kindle version does not. There are pages within the Kindle version that have the contents for the four sections of the country, but those pages are located in each section of the book rather than in the front/menu bar.

Pagination
With the iPad in landscape mode, the enhanced version displays 2 pages side by side, the Kindle version fills the page width with a single page. In portrait mode, both versions display a single page across. The photos show the difference in landscape mode.

Scrolling
The kindle version allows continuous scrolling of pages. The enhanced version forces you to scroll one page at a time.

Video and Audio
I found a few videos in a quick skim of the book. One video showed Old Faithful in action, with a narration that was about as useful as the caption on a still picture. The videos are a nice touch, and are a slight improvement over just stills. I did not find any stand alone audio content as the title alludes to. All audio was with the videos.

Summary
The book overall is great. I purchased the ebook, after I have made many trips with photocopied pages from the original printed version. I think I am going to stick with enhanced version. The added table of contents makes all the difference, and the videos are a nice touch. I will miss a few of the kindle features like continuous scrolling and page flip, but I think it is worth giving them up for the TOC.

Instead of the missing content table, it has 4 regional route overviews (West, Rockies, Central, Eastern) inside the book. The usability can be greatly improved by going through the book and adding bookmarks at all 4 region overviews, which cost me less than 15 minutes.

I''m not exaggerating when I say this book may be the best thing I have ever bought. It''s not a book. It''s a treasure map - not to monetary wealth, but to a treasure chest of breathtaking experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. I have driven through all of the lower 48 states on different road trips, and I have probably followed all or parts of 80%-90% of the routes in this book (including one for Maui, Hawaii). Even in the less scenic (some would say "boring") states, this book helps travelers find a few gems that are unique to the areas and/or geographical regions. For instance, who knew there was a giant, beautiful lake in the middle of flat, wind-swept Kansas that happens to be one of the biggest waterfowl refuges for migratory birds in the world? This book did, and now I have some amazing pics and videos of various birds hovering in the wind over the lake as the sun set over the water. It was a totally random side trip during a drive out west that turned into a great memory! That''s what this book offers.
And in the states with tons of national parks and things to see, this book helps pinpoint the "must-see" spots. The book is very easy to navigate. It has a map of all of the states, and all of the recommended routes are highlighted on the map with an index to read more about each route. So, it''s super easy to plan a trip (or side trip). I have owned this book for over 10 years, but I''m reviewing it today because I just bought it for a friend driving from Mississippi to northern California. She has already picked out four routes from the book to explore, and she is now even more excited for her drive!
