This is a beautiful book filled with pictures and brief descriptions about each destination. While the information about each location is brief, it is enough to encourage the reader to find out more. And the pictures are stunning! A great gift.

Beautiful pictures, concise text June 17 2008
By John Bernhardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book has many good pictures, and enough text to explain the photos.
It makes for A fascinating armchair read. The book is less beneficial as a practical guide, since many of the destinations are hard to get to for the average traveler....

Good Starting Point Jan. 15 2012
By Melody Jamison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading through this book, especially for the beautiful pictures. As I'm hoping to visit Canada for vacation this year, it was a good starting point. I took notes as I read for places to look up and Google. It's not a definitive travel guide, but neither is it advertised as one.

The last 25 places did seem a little odd. I think maybe they ran out of "wow" places and just went with some "hmm" touristy spots.
Unforgettable Canada - Helping to Plan Your Visit Dec 16 2012

My girlfriend is Candadian and having made only one trip to Canada, this book makes planning future visits a lot easier. I was in the Army for 22 years, so travel is not foreign (pun intended) to me. One thing about military travel is the orders are not stamped "RSVP" so travel is not always voluntary. This book subtly encourages you to take a trip to Canada and, as written, challenges you to prioritize those 100 destinations. The pictures are beautiful and the commentary are not overdone. "Unforgettable Canada: 100 Destinations sits on our coffee table as both a planning guide and a nice travel book.
