The New York Times, 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada


What I wouldn’t give for 36 hours in North America right now, a weekend admiring sky-scrapers in Manhattan or looking at Redwoods in Yosemite would provide just the kind of break that I need. Though clearly choosing where to spend a weekend in a continent as vast and varying as this and deciding what to do is just a tad overwhelming.
Luckily The New York Times have provided the answer in the form of their newly updated “36 Hours” book, where beautifully illustrated and indexed for us is an all you need to know guide to 150 wonderful weekends in America & Canada.  So whether you fancy some ‘Je ne Sais Quois’ in Quebec, a bit of hip and healthy hiking over in Death Valley or a bit of bopping to the blues down in Mississippi it’s all here for you in this stunning looking and incredibly practical travel guide.
