Got some good ideas for road trips from this book though not sure how uniquely 'for women' it is.

2016 Reading Challenge Category: A book that's guaranteed to bring you joy.

Thanks to this book, my USA travel list has grown by about eighteen new places to visit. Of course, there are the traditional must-sees like Mount Rushmore and Graceland, but my favorite destinations in this book are the ones that were new to me, like Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Florida (Real life mermaids? Sign me up!) and the mansions of Newport, RI (A Petit Trianon replica by the sea? Yes, please!) I also loved

This book is extraordinary, and while it DOES focus on travel (maybe this is why I love it so much?), it is a Mary Poppins bag of interesting things, waiting to be unpacked. It is, at once, a travel guide, a talk with a very funny best friend, a history class with your favorite professor, and inspiration to read, learn, and explore more. - See our interview with the author at:

If you enjoy traveling, this is a great book to read prior. The "100 places" aren't all the big, known visitor spots, some I had visited and some I wished a knew about before my travels. Annie Oakley's museum happens to be only 20 min. from where I live and evidently overlooked! The Author definitely did her homework, each description is thorough yet to the point. I received this book free through Goodreads giveaways.

Just received it in the mail and starting reading it. Loving it so far, very interesting and I am realizing how much of this country I need to visit and learn about.

I love this book and it's little history lessons. I kept it in the bathroom for me to explore so I didn't go to it as fast and miss out on remembering something good.
