Before the days in which accessibility existed, travelers relied heavily on maps and books to help them plan the perfect vacation. While the days of taking a road trip have gotten much easier with navigation systems in the tips of our fingers, planning a trip still takes a lot of research and suggestions from people who have experienced it. Travel books and guides are my ideal way of planning for a trip because it doesn’t waste your phone battery and they can be easily stored, sometimes small enough to fit your pocket! Check out our favorite travel guides below and then stop by your local bookstore to grab a book to help you plan the perfect vacation!
