Getting Guides to U.S. Travel Destinations
by Bob Carter
There's nothing quite so special as traveling with a personal and private guide. They pin-point destination attractions, lodging, special events, outdoor recreation, and public and private campgrounds. They often provide free maps and driving tours.
If you think you can't afford the luxury of such a travel companion, think again. All are free, easy to find, and take only a minute or two of your time.
Without a doubt, the best travel bargain in the United States is provided by state and local tourism agencies. Only a phone call away you'll discover a wealth of accurate, thorough, and exciting travel information. The numbers connect you generally to consumer fulfillment centers and occasionally directly to the state tourism agency.
It doesn't make sense to travel without knowing where you're going. State and regional planning guides contain maps, descriptions, details, and information available in no other publication. Next time you're planning a trip, pick up the phone, make a call, wait for the mail, and I guarantee you'll discover an exciting and rewarding world awaits you no matter where you choose to roam.
