To make the most of your free time at an out-of-town meeting, bring along a traveling companion — a city guide. Whether you're looking for museums, restaurants, attractions, shopping, or nightlife, these informational handbooks are a good source of inside advice and recommendations.
Following are some of the best and where to find them:
LONELY PLANET CITY GUIDES
LET'S GO TRAVEL GUIDES
ACCESS TRAVEL GUIDES
BERLITZ TRAVEL GUIDES
Most of these guides have regional and city-specific editions for just about every meeting destination in the United States and abroad, are updated annually, and include options for every budget. Two excellent online sources are Amazon at www.amazon.com and Barnes & Noble at www.bn.com.
