I was disappointed by this book. I thought it would be chock full of tidbits. Not really. Use this in conjunction with a AAA Tour Guide or Fodor's Guide AND brochures you pick-up from display cases at hotels, info centers, airports, etc. For example, traveling on one of the Puget Sound ferries, I got brochures on Sequim, the lavender capitol of the world. Not one mention of that fact in this book, just a little blurb. BTW, it's pronounced "Squim." If I had relied just on this book, I would have missed out on a lot of things. DO NOT RELY JUST ON THIS BOOK OR YOU WILL MISS OUT!
