An Excellent Travel Primer 18. März 2011
Von Buddy S - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
No one travel guide can serve as an all encompassing travel planner, but the 18th edition of Fodor's "Pacific Northwest" does a very good job of covering the basics and then some.

The book is divided so there is a separate discussion of each area of interest. Thus, there are chapters on Portland, the Oregon Coast, Willamette Valley, the Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Hood, Central Oregon, Crater Lake National Park, Eastern Oregon, Seattle, Seattle Environs, The Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, Olympic National Park, North Cascades National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Yakima River Valley, Eastern Washington, and Vancouver and Victoria.

Each chapter is logically organized. For example, the chapter on Seattle begins with a rundown of the "top reasons" to go to Seattle, followed by a general orientation of the area, how to get around, when to go and a detailed discussion of what to see in each part of the city. I have been an occasional visitor to Seattle and environs, and this guide provides everything you need to know for comprehensive sightseeing. There are also suggestions of where to eat divided by area, with several restaurants highlighted as a "Fodor's Choice," and even restaurant suggestions when "dining with kids." There are also lodging suggestions divided by area, again with some recommended as "Fodor's Choice." No list of the restaurant and lodging suggestions in a large city can be comprehensive and the suggestions in this book are no exception. For example, there are many hotels in the South Lake Union - Queen Anne area and I have stayed at several good hotels there, but not at either of the two hotels Fodor suggests in this area. There are about a dozen hotel recommendations for downtown Seattle and more for other areas, so a reader has a good chance of finding a suitable choice, if he is limiting himself only to the recommendations in this book.

The book also has maps of selected areas and interesting color photographs. I have regularly used Fodor travel books with great success and this volume is current and lives up to the Fodor standards. My suggestion is, however, that when using any travel guide, including this one, a traveler should consult other travel resources to supplement the information in this book, especially with regard to restaurant and hotel recommendations.

Good overview of the usual suspects 2. März 2011
Von Esther Schindler - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I'm in a particularly good position to review this guidebook, which Amazon Vine suggested to me among my recommended options. I've traveled to the Pacific Northwest several times in the last few years for both business and pleasure, so I'm at least slightly familiar with some of the hotels, restaurants, and tourist destinations that this Fodor's guide provides. Overall: It's a very good overview of the options, especially for the places you're most interested in.

Like most Fodor's guides, the Pacific Northwest 2011 edition had to cram a lot of information into a book that is light enough to stuff into your backpack. The introductory section essays (like "Oregon's best beaches") are excellent; I just wish there were more of them. Aside from a finite amount of space to devote to, say, Portland, the need to make the book heftable means that they must jettison a lot of personality and chatty explanations. (Not to mention some of my favorite restaurants, but okay, I expect such omissions.) That could be just fine -- plenty of us want "just the facts" from a guidebook rather than a social overview -- but if you're looking for a sense of what makes this region WayCool (and it is!), you might want an additional book. And a map, too, if you're going to spend most of your time in the city (downtown area maps aren't especially detailed).

I spent some time rummaging through the listings for the areas I've gotten to know pretty well, and none of them made me say, "What? They included THAT dive?!" I agree with most of their top recommendations, too, which they note as a Fodor's Choice -- among them Fort Clatsop on the Oregon coast, and Uwajimaya in Seattle.

Sometimes I wished that the book gave just an eensy bit more detail about a destination such as their hours. For instance, Mother's restaurant in Portland is an outstanding place for breakfast, though it doesn't open until late on Saturdays; from the listing you'd never know either of those facts. The book recommends the Mt Hood railroad but gives no clue as to their price. (Sure you can look it up online or call, but I prefer to know if I'm looking at a beer-or-champagne possibility.) And with city hotel accommodations in particular, it would be useful to point out when-and-where you need a car -- or should avoid one. Among Portland's many virtues is that you can visit most of the downtown area (including the conference center) using public transit, but any listing for the (Fodor's choice) McMenamins Kennedy School should mention that a car is practically a necessity.

Despite those quibbles, this is an excellent book for planning your trip. Fodor's information is trustworthy and reliable.

Expected more substance inside this pretty cover 10. März 2011
Von Andrea Polk - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Having lived in Oregon for over forty years I've traveled throughout Oregon and Washington, enjoying many of the sights mentioned in this book. Instantly taken in by the lovely cover photo of Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park, I was excited to take a look inside.

Like most of the Fodor's guides this book is filled with what I would call 'overview' information for those who know nothing of an area and want a feel for it. Recognizing that most guidebooks can't cover all the info on an area, I went directly to an area I know very well because I've lived here most of my life: 'Southern Oregon', specifically the Medford, Ashland and Grants Pass areas. Knowing what's there to do, festivals, restaurants, lodging, etc... it gave me a chance to get a feel for how well represented these areas are in the book. I was disappointed.

I'm not sure how Fodor's decides what restaurants and lodging make it into their guidebooks, but I can't help but wonder if it's based upon who pays them to do so. This is not to say that there isn't good information in this book - there is, but in my opinion, it's biased and sometimes a bit 'snobby'. Bearing that in mind I wasn't surprised to see the limited number of restaurants listed were also not necessarily the best, but certainly the 'look good' ones. Throughout the information given for the area I was disappointed with the lack of real insight into festivals, what's to do, lodging and food choices. Granted the area isn't Portland or Seattle, but there's a lot to do and see that was missed.

If you want a travel guidebook to the Pacific Northwest this is a 6 out of 10 on a ten point scale. If you want to really know the areas, I still think online choices are your best bet for current information and guides, but two books that are better than this one in my opinion, for maps and helpful information are: Pacific Northwest (EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDE) and Lonely Planet Pacific Northwest Trips (Regional Guide).

Bottom line - it's a pretty book, but not the best. Save your money.

Reliable information and good production values, but no more 4. März 2011
Von Aaron C. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is an old-fashioned guide book, mostly a list of hotels and restaurants, with a few recommendations of the best-known shops, museums, recreational opportunities and other tourist attractions. It's quite good at that with excellent maps for both driving and walking, attractive and useful pictures, accurate information about hours, addresses and telephone numbers. The physical production is good quality as well: the paper is light, strong and slightly glossy, the binding is sturdy and easy to open enough to expose the entire page. However, good as it is, you can get more up-to-date and convenient information on your smartphone or iPad.

I think most people will find either Eyewitness Pacific Northwest or Lonely Planet Washington, Oregon & the Pacific Northwest more useful. The first is better for planning trips and finding less-traditional and more up-to-date activities; the second covers the region in more depth. Neither of these has as extensive listings as Fodor's, however. So if it's listings you want, this is a good choice.

One warning: the subtitle claims the book covers Washington, Oregon and Vancouver but Vancouver is given short shrift. At most there is enough material for someone doing a day trip or overnight from Seattle.

Pretty 10. November 2011
Von Scarlett Brontë - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This book serves as a good overview for someone unfamiliar with the Pacific Northwest. The book is pretty and has a nice layout, but I didn't feel like it had enough useful information that couldn't be found elsewhere. I got this before moving to Oregon, and while it did get me excited about my trip, I gathered more information doing research online.
