36 Hours Books by New York Times

If you only had 36 hours in a city you were visiting, what would you do? The options can be so overwhelming! Where do you start?

As I’ve been researching our trip to Poland, I’m finding there aren’t a whole lot of good guides to Krakow. Luckily, The New York Times’s column, 36 Hours, has covered lots of territory, including cities that aren’t at the top of every “must visit” list.

The suggestions for each destination cover more than the highlights. They veer off the well traveled tourist tracks and give you tips for more of the local hang outs, sites to visit that might not be in your guidebook and places to find a good drink or two.

This column has also been published in multiple, nicely designed books, broken out by regions, currently mostly covering the U.S. & Canada, with Europe and Latin America thrown in. I’ll assume that The New York Times isn’t finished with the series yet. The one design flaw of the actual book is that it’s a bit big to lug in your suitcase (though there is one available as an ebook), but their lovely covers and awesome illustrations are great, so I still want them all.
