Travel guidebooks: What to know before you buy one

Many travelers rely on guidebooks when they travel to new cities. Although they provide good direction to travelers who are unfamiliar with an area, guidebooks also have some pitfalls.

I shared some of them with Sarah Morgan from SmartMoney¬†and she added them to her article, “10 Things Travel Guidebooks Won’t Say.” Anyone considering buying a guidebook should read Sarah’s article first. It gives great insight into what guidebooks do and do not provide. Jump over to it now and give it a read.

Thanks Sarah for featuring my thoughts!
