The Play Hard Rest Easy Series
"One great guidebook...we wish all guidebooks were as good."
NEW YORK MAGAZINE
Do you love the outdoors but not necessarily sleeping outdoors? Who says being outside must mean roughing it? High-energy recreation, stylish lodgings, superb dining and civilized relaxation make the ultimate getaway mix. If you like to play hard during the day--hiking, biking, paddling, skiing, sightseeing, or shopping (yes, there's sport in shopping)--but rest easy at night--dining in an elegant restaurant and sleeping in an upscale inn--you'll find this series of guidebooks indispensable.
