The book is a unique, user-friendly travel guide designed to simplify short-term automobile travel from Canada’s most populous urban centre to the United States, while highlighting the rich history and exciting attractions south of the border. The accessible volume introduces 10 fascinating destinations in 4 neighbouring American states. Best of all, each chapter is concise and conveniently organized, consisting of detailed directions, itineraries, customized maps, accommodations, shopping options, expenses and photographs. Unlike other travel guidebooks, this book is one-of-a-kind in the marketplace, providing users the ‘one-stop shopping’ needed for planning and making a relaxing and successful long-weekend road trip to the USA.
Another major benefit to this book is that it reveals how visiting the USA has numerous advantages over visiting local Canadian destinations. First, American states feature more attractions, many of which are world-famous. Also, accommodations, gas, and admission fees on the American side are usually less expensive. What’s more, Torontonians can avoid the endless crowds they are likely to encounter in Canada over the course of long-weekends because of the distinct American holiday calendar. Spending long-weekend in the USA further entitles Torontonians more duty-free allowance. Most surprisingly, the average distance to these exceptional USA destinations is about equal to traditional long-weekend destinations in Ontario.
Additionally, since all the itineraries were designed for family with kids, many child-friendly attractions are included in each trip. This handy volume should therefore be especially useful and appealing for families with kids across the burgeoning City of Toronto.
