by Larry H. Ludmer (Hunter Publishing)
Here are 53 of the nation's most spectacular parks covered in staggering detail. From Acadia to Yellowstone, these parks have been selected as the most scenic in the US. And Larry Ludmer tells you everything you need to know about them. Candid evaluations steer you to the best sections of each park, including those hidden sections rarely visited by the mass of people in summer. Ludmer offers valuable tips on how to avoid the crowds (by visiting early in the morning, mid-week), where to take lunch (deserted backcountry areas), and how to stretch your dollar (park passes and deals). You'll also learn about driving routes to and from each park, with suggested places to stay just outside the entrance. Inside, the book reveals the best walking tours and scenic drives, telling you what you must see and what you can afford to miss.
