Moon California road trip by Stuart Thornton

I didn’t know what ‘Moon’ in the title referred to, but I soon found out that there are a whole series of ‘Moon’ travel guides, mainly on the United States but also several other countries.

This is a compact traveller’s guide much like a Lonely Planet guide.  This particular one is ‘California Road Trip’ and the author creates a 14-day road trip around the top destinations in California.  He assumes you will embrace California’s love affair with the automobile, and will choose to drive.  His day-by-day itinerary will take you to the key locations, which are within a day’s drive of each other.

The key locations include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Yosemite and the Pacific Coast Highway.  In addition to giving great information about each of the locations he outlines how to travel there, and things to see and do along the way.

This little book is packed with photos, 36 maps, and loads of information on what to see, where to stay, where to eat.  Even if you are not doing a road trip, the detailed information he provides on the locations is excellent.  As this is a 2015 publication it is completely up to date.  Don’t be put off with the ‘Road Trip’ in the title, it contains information on all types of travel and even if you are only going to one city or area in California you will find the book indispensable.
