Let's face it; most travel books are a glance-and-go proposition. Most of them do a passable job providing key information, but they aren't exactly a pleasure to read. Frommer's New England 2003 changes all that. Not only are the cititations clear, correct, and complete, many of them are laugh-out-loud funny or wickedly sly. At the end of a busy day on the road, I actually found myself reading the guide for fun (while happily settled in one of the recommended accommodations).A literate guide obviously written by folks in the know.

Great for a recent trip to Boston and Newport, RI.
The tips on what to see and what to avoid were dead on.

Extremely Valuable May 13 2000
By Jill U. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have never bought a Frommer's Guide Book before, and now after I purchased this one, I am a loyal customer! I found it extremely insightful as to the most quaint New England towns to visit, which are the best routes to get there, practical information on the restaurants in town as well as their price ranges for any type of budgets - as well as advice on the many different bed and breakfasts that are available. This book caters to all travel styles, preferences and budgets. I planned most of my vacation with this book because it had phone numbers, prices, excellent directions... I could probably go on and on. Definitely a must for anyone who is traveling and not familiar with the area. It's like talking to someone who has lived in New England their whole life and is on hand to give you all the practical information you need to have a successful and fun/relaxing vacation. As if the book weren't great enough - they give you a wonderful full-sized pullout map that has all the towns marked on it which are mentioned in the book.

Good overall Oct. 22 2005
By Todd Whatley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We bought the Mobile book, the "Everything" book and this book. Of the three, this had the most detailed information. The maps are not great but the rest of the book makes up for that. The regional grouping was a great help.

A limited tour of New England April 13 2009
By Stephen Senzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book based on some favorable reviews. Several of the other prominent guides for this area got rather bad reviews. I was very disappointed to find that this book is very limited or specialized in some areas and lacking in others. (I live in NW CT and know the NE states fairly well.) We are planning a trip to Mass,.orth shore, not an area I know well. This book was very lacking in info about accommodations and restaurants in the entire area. It is useless for our trip. But if I wanted to go to Nantucket, and area with which I have some knowledge, it tells me about lots of expensive restaurants. I can't believe how little it tells me about New Haven, and Hartford might almost not exist. What were the weriters and publishers thinking? I am thinking I should return the book to Amazon.

Skimpy on New Hampshire May 30 2007
By Edward J. Cunion Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This travel guide is heavily weighted toward Massachussetts and very thin on New Hampshire, and somewhat thin on Maine. In hindsight consider reviewing some of the other New England Guides such as Fodor's and Lonely Planet before considering this one. A bit of a disappointment.
