Includes new attractions, like Miami’s Pérez Art Museum and Manhattan’s High Line, plus more than 150 places of special interest to families. And, for every entry, what you need to know about how and when to visit.

Brand New Edition for the Holidays
By Gone Fish'n
A brand new edition with beautiful color photographs just in time for the holidays - this has been my go-to-gift for traveling friends. I love the original 1000 Places world book by the same offer, but this is the perfect reference for the wonders to be found in our North American backyard.
