Summary

Summary

Dedicated to travelers with a taste for the unique, these easy-to-use, state-by-state guides will help readers discover the hidden places that most tourists miss -- shining the spotlight squarely on the off-beat. If it is funky, funny, little-known, or out of the way, it will probably be found in Off the Beaten Path "RM."

This series covers every state in the United States plus Washington, D.C., the Maritime Provinces, British Columbia, Quebec, Puerto Rico, and selected cities such as Boston and Chicago.

From historical villages to lighthouses, to farmers markets and puffins, atypical attractions await the traveler to the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia.
