C'est le seul ouvrage que j'ai pu trouver sur la Caroline du Sud et du Nord. Livre très bien fait, surtout si l'on veut visiter pleinement les deux Carolines, voire la Géorgie.

Great for ideas but not for trip planning 21 mai 2009
Par Derek G - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
With 65 themed itineraries and 1192 places covered through the states of North & South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee this book would appear at first glance to be exactly what you were looking for when doing a trip through the Southeastern United States. Call me picky, but the problem I found was that after reviewing the various preplanned trips there isn't one I would be interested in following from beginning to end. Not one.

The problem is that the various trips are arranged in such a way that I believe the average traveler would quickly become disinterested. For instance, there are many trips involving themes such as "food and drink" that last for days. Take for instance a four day trip involving 21 different restaurants in Atlanta. The first question to ask is would you be able to eat at 21 restaurants in four days? The second is, if you were to visit Atlanta would you want to spend all your time doing nothing else except eating at restaurants? Others like the "outdoors" trip involve 19 different destinations encompassing 300 miles. I doubt it will be completed in the 2-3 days they say it can be done; unless you don't stop to see anything.

The other problem I had was they didn't spend much time selling the different destinations. One of the more interesting trips involves retracing the steps of Martin Luther King. While there are a number of interesting places to see in this 600 mile, 4-day trip, one of the destinations involves a visit to the National Voting Rights Museum. According to the book, their claim to fame is a cattle prod used by a racist sheriff on African-Americans. Sold yet?

So that's why I struggle to give this book even three stars. You'll likely not follow their pre-planned trip ideas and quite a few of the destinations have only a one or two sentence description. Enough to pique your interest but that's it. I think the best use of this book is to generate ideas but you'll still need to plan your trip yourself.

There are better guidebooks 15 décembre 2009
Par David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I live in North Carolina, and was very excited about getting this guidebook on the region. However, it proved to be a big disappointment because it tries to cover too much territory. The guidebook really has no focus. Is it covering the Carolinas and Georgia, the Southeast or the entire South? Even though the title highlights the Carolinas and Georgia, it doesn't emphasize them as much as one would expect. What is Louisiana, Kentucky and Mississippi doing in this book? I found myself frustrated with the entire setup because there really doesn't seem to be one. I suppose the title should have simply been The South, but then it left out Arkansas, Virginia, and Florida. For my area (central NC--Raleigh/Durham) there were no great tips for the traveler that couldn't be found in a Triple A guidebook. Basically, it gives the most general of information. The writing was not really engaging, either. I do not recommend this guidebook for anyone interested in the Carolinas, which I know extremely well. I was trying to think for whom this guidebook was written, and I honestly cannot answer that.

Look it over before you buy.... 4 août 2009
Par Lazy Day Gardener - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Lonely Planet's `The Carolinas, Georgia & the South Trips,' which offers 65 themed itineraries, and 1192 local places to see, covers North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I am a Southerner; these are states I often visit, and my hometown is included in this volume, so my evaluation of it is based on personal experience.

The suggestions for my hometown are bland and glib. A local restaurant is suggested because `the servers are coeds.' The area lodging suggested is a converted grain silo - which may be fun for hunters and horseback riders, but hey guys, some folks may be better suited to one of local B&B's or even the Marriott. `The local places to see' in my area reads as though it were written by someone who has never seen the place!

As a matter of fact, reading through the guide, I wonder how many on-site visits were paid. There seems to be little in-depth information. There is no sense of immediacy or place.

I understand that these guides are intended to be edgy and appeal to an younger audience. That`s a valid goal. But surely even the young deserve more complete information and less of a local tourism board handout feeling about the project.

My advice: look it over before you buy.

It's road trip time! But don't expect to see too many pictures, you'll have to go in person. 30 avril 2009
Par Modern Blue Argonaut - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
If you're heading out on a road trip anywhere in the South this summer (Florida, see Florida (Regional Guide), bring along this book and you'll be clued in to some of the gems that await your enjoyment.

Unlike so many regional guides that focus on one particular area, this one guides the reader on sixty five detailed, themed road trips. Trip #6 is NASCAR's Best Pit Stops. It takes you from Mooresville, NC to Daytona Beach, FL , covering 1120 miles in eight days. Attractions, food, and lodging are covered with paragraph long descriptions and contact information, in six pages. At the end, it also shows which other trips intersect this road trip, so it's very customizable to your needs. Since we're going to Atlanta this summer for a week, I am considering picking up the second half of the NASCAR road trip on my way back.

Some of the trips even offer a music playlist to take-along. I thought that was a really nice touch. The guide also recommends the best time to visit.

Unfortunately, this book seemed to me to be rushed to print. Some considerations were not taken into account such as format, pictures, or even accuracy. This book would have made easier reading if it was spiralbound like a good cookbook. Additionally, the only pictures in this 424 page book are found between pages 4-24, which just isn't enough. It would have been nice if 1-2 additional pages of pictures were added per road trip.

I also found some inaccuracies. For example, on page 82, it says the NASCAR trip can be linked with Trip 43 on page 283. However, page 283 (trip 43) is 48 Hours In New Orleans, which does not intersect the NASCAR trip. In fact, the NASCAR trip does not even dip into New Orleans, much less Louisiana. They meant 48 Hours in Atlanta, which is Trip 26 on page 197. Also, at the end of Trip 26, it fails to mention that it can be linked with the NASCAR trip, so you'll have to dig around in the book a bit to confirm details.

Considering the lack of trip specific pictures, and inaccuracies, I got the impression this book was put together by someone at their desk with an Internet connection rather than someone on the road. Therefore I'm a little less trusting of the details that I would be otherwise. I plan on calling ahead to confirm everything.

Despite the books flaws, I learned a few things and plan on using this resource for our trip. Already parts of a few of the trips are helping me to plan.

Each trip is designated by one (or two) theme icons.

The themes you'll find in this book are:

Iconic Trips - Great, must-do trips that represent the region

Route - Trips that follow a well-known route, with extra insider detail

Food & Drink - Trips to BBQ joints, po'boy haunts, Cajun restaurants and more

Outdoors - Trips through the mountains, along backroads, to national parks, and the coast

History & Culture - Trips back in time, to historic towns, and trips with a musical twist

Offbeat - Trips to haunted pubs, Gothic sites, roadside curios, and other oddball attractions

City - Trips for urbanites

Day Trips - Trips no more than a few hours from a hub city

States covered are North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky.

Very nice, compact, tour Book. 17 septembre 2009
Par Ninjaba - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Firstly, I don't have a desire to go on any of the "Themed Trips," but I would like to visit many of the individual places listed in this book. With over 1192 places to see in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky it's enough to keep my family busy for awhile. The tours in this book take you through many different cities and states. I enjoy the history / educational information that begin most "trips," and the interesting facts along the way are really worth a read. I'm really glad the authors included a "Day Trips" section to select cities with places you must see / experience. The book is small is size, so easy to carry around and tuck into a purse, nice maps, and useful "Best Times To Go."
