"Alive!" guides tell you what's hot, and what's not, with plenty of suggestions for daytime activity and night-time fun. Beyond where to stay and eat, "Alive!" guides focus on the things that make each destination unique - scenic fall drives in the Catskills, spectacular architecture in Copenhagen and unforgettable cuisine on St. Martin. Full details on local celebrations, along with contact numbers for help in trip-planning. "Sunup to Sundown" sections describe daytime activities from sightseeing and shopping to swimming and beachcombing. "After Dark" sections give the low-down on nightlife from mild to wild. An "A-Z" reference at the end provides a comprehensive list of useful contacts, including ATM and bank locations, doctors and medical facilities, tourism offices, religious services and websites. The islands of St. Martin and St. Barts at the tip of the Lesser Antilles are a delightful mix of cultures. Dutch-style architecture is still evident throughout Sint Maarten; French chefs work in the best restaurants. St. Barts is the quieter of the two, with a refined atmosphere and laid-back style. It's a big yacht haven, drawing hundreds of boats to its tiny harbours.
