In the middle of winter it’s fun to dream about travel destinations for a spring or summer vacation. Bhutan, Shanghai, Prague, Madrid—SJPL has just received new travel guides for these places and many others. If you scroll through the list of new non-fiction books on our web site, you’ll come across them. You can also locate travel guides in our catalog by doing a keyword search using the name of your destination followed by the word “guidebooks.”
Although dreaming is fun, I won’t be traveling to any far away locations this year. “Staycations” and California travel are better suited to my budget. Some new books that I’ll be looking at include:
Stairway Walks in San Francisco by Adah Bakalinsky with Marian Gregoire
Napa and Sonoma (Fodor's)
Fodor's 2011 Northern California edited by Carolyn Roth, et al.
Some of my favorite California travel destinations are the Gold Country, Cambria, and Point Reyes. What are yours?
