Written for travelers who want to break from the tourist track and discover the secret spots known and love by the locals
The Hidden series of guidebooks from Ulysses Press offers intelligent, accessible coverage that leads the traveler to the best each region has to offer -- but to the standard tourist attractions as well as hidden, off-the-beaten path locations -- so travelers acquire a true sense of the region they're visiting.
From the windswept Outer Banks and the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains to the cobblestone streets of Charleston and the plate-glass skyline of Charlotte, the Carolinas are gaining a reputation as a top vacation spot. Hidden Carolinas covers all the top attractions as well as local favorites overlooked by most travelers. This updated edition serves up information on unique hotels and restaurants and popular shopping districts and nightspots. Expanded outdoor sections provide more details on hiking trails, biking paths, campgrounds, and fishing and rafting. [via]
