A wonderful guidebook, June 28, 2005

We just returned from a driving trip through the Shenandoah Valley. Picked up this guidebook in New York City before we left. It was perfect. All the recommendations for things to see and restaurants were just as described. Driving directions were also good. Based on the author’s recommendation, we decided to stay at the Long Hill Bed and Breakfast in Winchester, VA and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. A very worthwhile travel guide.

I am not a well traveled person. What I know of the Shenandoah Valley is based on a few trips up and down the I-81 corridor. I wanted to know more about the area before an upcoming trip there. This book provided excellent information and good guidance as to where to go and what to see including seasonal events. You also get good information about where you can stay and eat. If you like B&Bs or local establishments I highly recommend this book. It does not provide reviews but it does give the facts. Then, as I did, you can go online and search for reviews. For the record, every location I went to and where I stayed during the week is covered in the book. In fact, two places I visited, Seneca Rocks and Falling Springs Falls, I would not have visited if it were not for Jim Hargans’s book. Any short comings, in my opinion, would be the quality of the maps, which I considered sparse and slightly confusing. I would also prefer to see more photos.
