Golf Vacations Even Non-Golfers Will Enjoy: Southeastern United States -A book reviewer from Ohio states, "If you have one or more non-golfers in the family, it's important to plan your golf vacation for where there are things for the others to do while you're on the course. Our family had been planning a Myrtle Beach vacation and had found lots of "general" info on the web, but this book speaks directly to golfers with non-golfers in the group, so it was tremendously helpful to us. We're already planning a trip to Florida for next summer, based on this book's recommendations." Includes vacation ideas for Georgia.

 
The Charleston, Savannah & Coastal Islands Book: A Complete Guide (Great Destinations Series) Spring comes early to the Lowcountry. At a time of year when New York City is coated in a seemingly permanent layer of brown slush and St. Paul, Minnesota, is digging out from yet another remarkable blizzard, Beaufort, South Carolina, is celebrating its annual daffodil harvest and Charleston is putting on its Lowcountry Blues Bash and hosting the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. In a region that's sweltering by May, February through April is the time to visit, and Cecily McMillan's guide makes traveling as easy as sweet potato pie. With attention to history, lodging, restaurants, recreation, and culture, McMillan provides easily navigable maps, advice on what to do and see, and a strong flavor of the South.

The Thru-hiker's Handbook (Georgia to Maine) - This would have to be the first choice for long distance hikes on the Appalachian Trail. Dan's guide books have been the standard for real hikers for years. The book is extremely helpful in planning town stops and re-supply points. The inclusion of historic information as well as plant and fauna descriptions elevate it above just facts and figures. In the back of the guide is a section to submit updates on anything the reader finds has changed since the guide was published. This gives everyone the chance to participate in keeping the guide up to date.

One of the things I really enjoy is watching a movie that takes place somewhere I have traveled. It is really neat to watch a movie and be able to say, "I ate in that restaurant," or "I walked down that street." Netflix has more movies than anyone, including over 6,000 documentaries. And, with their very competitive pricing, watching a movie in the comfort of your own home is really inexpensive -- especially when you don't have to pay so much for the popcorn!
