From Library Journal
Following the example she set in Guide to Family Vacations: Eastern North America (Globe Pequot, 1993), veteran travel writer Stapen has produced another hit. Stapen covers states west of the Mississippi River (including Alaska and Hawaii) as well as the Canadian provinces Calgary and British Columbia, giving special emphasis to finding activities suitable for children, so amusement parks, swimming pools, and shopping centers are liberally sprinkled among museums, ruins, ghost towns, and natural attractions. Each destination includes information on getting there (airlines, Greyhound, Amtrak), getting around (rapid transit, rental car), what to see and do, special events, where to stay, where to eat, day trips, and more information, e.g., chamber of commerce or visitors' bureau, road conditions, and hospitals. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
