I live in rural America but love to visit cities to get my fill of museums, theaters, restaurants, and shops. Today I am sharing a great book for those who love the excitement of being in the city.
50 Cities of the U.S.A.
written and researched by Gabrielle Balkan Illustrated by Sol Linero
Wide Eyed Editions, an imprint of The Quarto Group 2017
This large colorful gazetteer is a guide to 50 fabulous cities. Written in an alphabetical format (perfect for the A to Z Blog Challenge) each city is portrayed on a double page spread. Locations of important landmarks, parks, restaurants, and much more is laid over the map of each city. There is information about inspiring people from each city as well as key facts and a suggested itinerary for the city is included. Here is an overview of a double page spread (I’ve chosen Chicago because it starts with C)
A good index is included and the back end pages have pictures of icons to search and find within the book. 50 Cities is perfect for trip planning and will be a fun addition to US geography classes.
Is there a city you’ve never visited that you would like to see?
