Inspiring coffee table book celebrates the recent lift of travel restrictions between the UK and EU and the US

We are excited to reveal these extraordinary places all over the US, as an inspiration for travellers worldwide, following the latest government announcements to lift travel restrictions for many.”

— Agnieszka Mizak

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 22, 2021 / — Global travel authority Rough Guides is releasing a new, inspiring book showcasing the most extraordinary places in the US: The Rough Guide to the 100 Best Places in the US is now available for purchase as hard copy in the US and will be in the UK from the 1st October 2021.

The book is part of Rough Guides’ inspirational coffee table series, featuring exhilarating images and is the second of its kind for US travel, following the Rough Guide to the USA's National Parks published in August this year.

The publishing date coincides with the US government’s recent decision to lift travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers from the UK and the EU starting early November. The book helps travellers plan exciting US journeys, taking in famous sites as well as discovering new areas and cities.

Organised by region, this stunning photograph collection brings 100 remarkable places to life, from iconic landmarks like the Grand Canyon to up-and-coming areas such as Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Each place is introduced with an inspiring image and a lively, descriptive text, highlighting what makes the place special.

Rough Guides Managing Director Agnieszka Mizak said: "We are excited to reveal these extraordinary places all over the US, as an inspiration for travellers worldwide. The latest government decision to lift travel restrictions for fully-vaccinated travellers from the UK and EU is long awaited great news for the travel industry and at Rough Guides, we’re delighted to support travellers with inspiration and travel advice.”

A selection of the 100 Best Places in the US

– Niagara Falls: the green expanses of the National Park on the American side, especially the leafy environs of Goat Island, allow you to get away from the crowds and feel more connected to the natural splendour of this unique phenomenon.
– Theodore Roosevelt National Park: the park’s smaller North Unit receives only a fraction of the visitors of its counterpart, though it’s arguably more spectacular.
– New Orleans: the city is a bewitching place, where world-class musicians make ends meet busking on street corners and hole-in-the-wall dives dish up gourmet Creole cuisine.
– Valley of Fire State Park: some say that the sun reflecting off the curious rock formations in the Valley of Fire looks like a sea of flame; others that the rocks resemble elephants, spears, beehives and even a huddle of shy sisters. One thing is certain: look closely, and the eroded sandstone outcrops tell many stories.

Also soon to be published is the 13th edition of the Rough Guide to the USA, due for UK release on 15th October and US release on 16th November.
