Mit dem Lonely Planet USA auf eigene Faust durch das Land der unbegenzten Möglichkeiten! Etliche Monate Recherche stecken im Kultreiseführer für Individualreisende. Auf nahezu 1400 Seiten geben die Autoren sachkundige Hintergrundinfos zum Reiseland, liefern Tipps und Infos für die Planung der Reise, beschreiben alle interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten mit aktuellen Öffnungszeiten und Preisen und präsentieren ihre persönlichen Entdeckungen und Tipps. Auch Globetrotter, die abseits der ausgetretenen Touristenpfade unterwegs sein möchten, kommen auf ihre Kosten. Wie wäre es beispielsweise mit Musik im Freien? Der Red Rocks Park hat ein Amphitheater mit 9000 Sitzplätzen, das dramatisch eingebettet zwischen 120m hohen Buntsandsteinfelsen liegt. Die Akkustik ist einfach fantastisch, weshalb viele Künstler hier ihre Livealben aufnehmen. Oder lieber Kajakfahren? Der von steil aufragenden Felswänden umgebene Tracy- Arm-Fjord in Alaska ist von Eisbergen gesäumt und ein bezauberndes Ziel für einen ausgedehnte Paddelausflug. Wo unterwegs übernachten und essen? Für jeden größeren Ort gibt es eine Auswahl an Unterkünften und Restaurants für jeden Geschmack und Geldbeutel. Abgerundet wird der Guide durch Übersichts- und Detailkarten, einem Farbkapitel zu den 25 Top-Highlights, Special: Die Nationalparks der USA, Reiserouten, fundierte Hintergrundinformationen sowie Glossar und - damit Sie gut verständlich ankommen - einem Sprachführer.
