50 States, 5,000 Ideas: Where to Go, When to Go, What to See, What to Do (Paperback)
May. Mother's Day. Graduation. Summer vacation planning. This wonderful book could be used for lots of occasions. Tons of information with great color photos. I like the "State of the Art" that tells you about movies, songs, art, and BOOKS related to the state. Other features include "Festivals", "Local Flavor", and "Little Known Facts". Say ROAD TRIP!!, but do you agree with what they picked for Michigan?— margaret
