Book Description

Jan. 3 2012 Frommer's Complete Guides
  • Insider advice on all that this diverse state has to offer, from New York City's historic West Village to the Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, and from the wild beauty of the Adirondacks to prime leaf-peeping in the Hudson Valley. They've checked out all the state's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offer authoritative, candid reviews
  • Where to find the best slice of pizza, the loveliest beaches on Long Island, the most scenic towns in the Finger Lakes Region, the original Buffalo wing, and, of course, the best homemade ice cream in the Hudson Valley.
  • Insightful commentary on New York's wide array of historically significant sights and first class art museums, from New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
  • Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way.
  • Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.
  • User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.

2.0 out of 5 stars No use without an index. Aug. 27 2013
By JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this guide book in a kindle edition. Sounded like a good idea - didn't have to carry around a book - but what you want in a guide book is the ability to look something up quickly using an alphabetical index. This was pretty useless.
5.0 out of 5 stars Frommer's New York State Oct. 18 2013
By Felicity Meunier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Knowing nothing about New York State, the book was a wealth of information and steered me to where I needed to go, including accommodation, restaurants and what to see.
5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book. great recommendations! July 27 2013

Very useful on our road trip to Niagara falls area, finger lakes, Albany and Catskills. The only neg I can think of is that the maps are not detailed enough, so get a map to accompany the book or use your smartphone for maps...
4.0 out of 5 stars good take-along on our trip to upstate New York Nov. 13 2012

We took this guide along on our driving vacation through upstate N.Y. This is a very handy take-along item and I would highly recommend it as a good general resource.

2.0 out of 5 stars Trys to be too many things to too many people Nov. 15 2012
By Truth Bearer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has no focus--it tries to cover too many areas (New York is a big place). It might be useful as a starting point, but that's not what I wanted. I imagine most of the information you can get for free off the internet.
