Book Description

Jan. 25 2011 Michelin Green Guide California
Respected cultural travel guides featuring Michelin stars and tours. This completely revised new edition features the best of California, which thanks to the film and television industries, can seem a familiar place to first-time visitors. Its sun-baked beaches, city streets, picturesque villages and desert canyons have appeared as settings for countless movies and TV shows. But beyond the familiar backdrops, an endlessly fascinating variety of sights, attractions and experiences invites exploration and enjoyment in the Golden State?s many regions. Tours, maps, full-color photos, illustrations and plenty of new content help you to explore California, while Michelin's celebrated star-rating system and respected maps make sure you see the best that California has to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Road Trips! Feb. 9 2004
Format:Paperback
I love the Green Guide series because:
1) It's subjective. They tell you what is good, not what is hyped or what the travel agent has a package for. It does not re-hash some handout by the local Chamber of Commerce. Some little-known places get two & three stars because Michelin visited them.
2) It's geared towards road trips. Monsieur Michelin wrote these books to encourage people to wear our their tires. The guides suggest itinararies and put an emphasis on scenic views and scenic routes that Fodors and other guides little heed. It also gives brief road descriptions if the road is dirt or really winding.
3) The green guides give short and interesting background on the history, culture, & economics of the area. These passages are short so they are not boring.
4) The green guides themselves have a lot of maps. Articles are cross-referenced to the map in the Green Guide & regular Michelin road maps.
5) The form factor (shape & size) is easy to carry and stow in a glove box.
6) I mostly agree with their opinions: no stars: so-so; 1 star: Interesting; 2 stars: worth a detour; 3 stars: worth a trip by itself. Surprizing how some major tourist destinations only get 1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michelin Tourist Guides April 24 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found Michelin collection of tourist guides very helpful in general and specificly about California. The way the issues most critical for your travel are organized, the consise way of presenting information and organizing in the book is amaizing.
I do travel a lot and my first choice for guide books is always Michelin. I strongly reccomend you to do the same.
