Frommer’s books aren’t written by committee, or by travel writers who simply pop in briefly to a destination and then consider the job done. We employ the best local experts to author our guides, like Darcy Rhyno, a seasoned journalist born into a Nova Scotia fishing family, who has been traveling through the Maritimes since he was a small child and built his career writing in and about Atlantic Canada.
Rhyno introduces readers to the best and most authentic restaurants, hotels, shops, attractions and nightlife in the Maritimes; and provides unique insights into their history, natural wonders and vibrant contemporary culture. Most importantly, he’ll tell you straight out what’s worth your precious vacation time and what you can skip with no qualms.
This light, portable book includes a fold-out map, plus detailed maps throughout the guide, exact pricing, opening hours, and the other important details that will make your trip smoother and less hectic. It features smartly conceived itineraries for travelers of all types and fastidiously researched information on the Maritimes’ famed scenic drives and hiking opportunities. It offers savvy, sometimes sneaky, tips for saving money in ALL price ranges, whether you need to pinch pennies or can splash out a bit.
