Travel Better, Cheaper, Longer

Travel Guides

My travel guides aim to give you the best and most up-to-date information on the major travel destinations around the world. (I know how bad it is to get outdated information from a print guidebook so I keep all these pages updated constantly!)

Here you will find things to see and do, information about costs, my best money-saving advice, recommendations on places to stay, suggested restaurants, transportation tips, and safety advice. I give you everything I know about each destination.

No matter what type of vacation you are going on — a cruise, backpacking trip, island getaway, two-week holiday, round-the-world trip, or family vacation — these destination guides will give you all the information you need so you can travel better, longer, and cheaper.

I update this section twice a year to keep the content fresh!

Below are my favorite companies to use when I travel. They are always my starting point when I need to book a flight, hotel, tour, or train, or for meeting people!

  • Skyscanner – Skyscanner is my favorite flight search engine. It searches small websites and budget airlines that larger search sites tend to miss. It is hands-down the number one place to start.

  • Booking.com – The best all-around booking site. It constantly provides the cheapest and lowest rates and has the widest selection of budget accommodation. In all my tests, it’s always had the cheapest rates out of all the booking websites.

The Best Facebook Travel Groups On the Internet

Note: This post may contain affiliate links! Check our disclaimer if you need more info!

travel guide facebook

This is a reference guide for the best Facebook travel groups.

Even before I started blogging, Facebook travel groups were a great source of information for my travels.  Over time, some have stood out to me more than others either because they were extremely helpful or they have a strong community feel.  If you haven’t had a chance to deep dive into Facebook travel groups or you aren’t sure which are the best, I’ve got you covered!  I am an active member in all of the Facebook travel groups listed here and absolutely love them.  So without further adieu, here are the best Facebook travel groups.

What Are Facebook Travel Groups

Why join facebook travel groups, solo mom travel, 9 to 5 travel, wandering moms, black kids do travel, moms (girls love travel), tiny globetrotters: travel the world with kids, girls love travel, curvy girls travel guide, black travel movement, african american travelers, black world travelers, road to 100 countries, award travel 101.

A Facebook travel group is a group on Facebook that is dedicated to all things travel.  Some of them use special niches like family travel, travel to a specific region, travel for specific genders, etc.  Regardless of their niche, you’ll find a group of people all interested in that particular topic.

The goal of these Facebook travel groups is to provide information that other travelers might find helpful.  Think of them as an easy [and free] way to crowdsource information for your trip.

I love Facebook travel groups because if you find the right one, the members can usually provide a level of insight you wouldn’t find through a general Google search.  For example, I shared my post about things to do in Orlando besides theme parks in one of my favorite Facebook travel groups.  A local responded with an attraction I hadn’t heard of which I was able to add to the list.

Also, on a personal level, sometimes it is just nice to commiserate with other people attempting this travel life too.  Missed your connecting flight?  Came down with massive diarrhea at the tail end of your trip?  Lost your passport in the deserts of Morroco?  Chances are someone else in a Facebook travel group has experienced the same thing.  They can offer their support and usually provide resolutions that worked for them.

Best Facebook Travel Groups for Solo Moms

Whether you’re a single mom or just a mom that travels solo with your kids, Solo Mom Travel is the Facebook travel group for you. Participants crowdsource everything from trip ideas to travel tips. Connect with other like-minded solo moms in this wonderful group.

Best Facebook Travel Groups for Families

Facebook Travel Groups - 9 to 5 Travel

I couldn’t write this post about Facebook travel groups without including our own.  9 to 5 Family Travel group is dedicated to the average working family that wants to balance their careers and traveling with their children.  We share everything from school calendars to budget to tips/tricks to maximize your PTO.

Wandering Moms is hands down one of my favorite Facebook travel groups.  As the title suggests, the group is for moms that travel with their kids.  If you are a fellow travel family, you can find most of what you need here: itineraries, tips, and advice.  The owners of the groups also coordinate group travels [some with kids and some without] that you can sign up for.

Black Kids Do Travel is another one of my favorite Facebook travel groups.  With over 22,000 members, this group is packed with helpful information and travel inspiration.  It is run by the fabulous Karen Akpan of The Mom Trotter who regularly contributes helpful tips as well.   This is a must join Facebook travel group.

This Facebook travel group is dedicated to moms that want to travel with their kids.  This group is actually a subsidiary of Girls Love Travel, a large Facebook group designed for women that travel.  It is heavily moderated with many group administrators.  Posts can take some time to be approved and any topics deemed as unhelpful are denied.  Comments are also moderated and removed if offensive or against group rules.  The heavy overhead is helpful though because it guarantees an on-topic, clean, productive Facebook travel group.

Tiny Globetrotters is highly interactive and one of the best Facebook travel groups out there.  What I like the most about this group is that the members are from all over the world.  Many groups can be very centric on the United States but not this one!  It is global so you really get a variety of posts, questions, and ideas.

Best Facebook Travel Group for Women

This Facebook travel group has over 1 million members but somehow manages to maintain a small community feeling.  With that many members, it is heavily moderated out of necessity; posts can take days to approve and any threads that go awry are closed almost immediately.  However, I’ve learned of new destinations, given and received help, and online connected with some awesome ladies in this group.  Plus, they also plan group trips led by the group founder Haley Woods. This, by far, is one of the best Facebook travel groups on the web.

The Internet needs all the body positivity it can get – especially in the travel space.  That’s why The Curvy Girls Travel Guide is one of my favorite Facebook travel groups.  It provides a safe space for those that identify as women to connect and collaborate whether it be about plus-sized travel or just travel in general.

Best Facebook Travel Group for African-Americans

Despite some drama surrounding coordinated trips, Black Travel Movement remains one of my preferred Facebook travel groups.  There are over 400,000 highly engaged people in the group and it stays busy with posts every day.  The admins require that every post be informational so you are bound to learn a lot about travel in this group.

African American Travelers actually has roots as a travel planning company.  Their customers asked them to expand into forming a real community so African American Travelers Facebook travel group was born.  The group was created for folks to connect, share and inspire and it does just that.

There are many Facebook travel groups designated for African-American travelers. What makes Black World Travelers stand out is that they specifically state that they are “strictly for the classy Black professional traveler.”  Photography, recent travel news, and more are shared here.

Best Misc Facebook Travel Group

Don’t want a specific niche? Just want to learn about all things travel regardless of your family status, gender, or race?  Then Road to 100 Countries is the Facebook travel group for you!  There’s a little bit of family travel, a little bit of solo travel, a little bit of award travel — there’s a little bit of everything.

Facebook Travel Groups - Award Travel 101

I’m the first to admit that I struggle with traveling on points [check here to see how we budget for our trips and here to see how we afford to travel ].  However, we’ve made big strides in accumulating miles and points and learning how to properly redeem them by being a member of Award Travel 101.  This Facebook travel group is filled with gurus that will help you get the most out of your award travel.

The Best Travel Guides (Online and Books)

' src=

Even in the digital age, travel guide books are an important part of my travel planning journey. I have read and tried many different travel books and online travel guides. And I pulled together a list of what I think are the best travel guides (books and online resources). 

couple using a map while planning a trip

I return to my favorite travel guides again and again with each trip that we plan. Once you find a travel guide series that you know and trust, it can really speed up the travel planning process.  

But which travel guides are the best? Keep reading for the full list!

Are travel guidebooks still used now? 

Absolutely! Although you can find a wealth of travel planning help online, the good old-fashioned travel guidebooks are still very much available and in use. 

Some people prefer to use paper travel guidebooks. You can flag important sections and highlight things you want to remember. We’ve even ripped our books up (they’re meant to be used!) and traveled only with the sections covering the cities and sites we visited. 

E-books are also a great option for travel guides. If you use e-books, you can easily travel with several guides without adding a single ounce to your luggage. It’s a perfect option for those who travel carry-on only .

Rick Steves: best travel guides for Europe 

Rick steves guidebooks .

Some seasoned travelers look down their noses a bit at Rick Steves guide books . There’s no reason for that. Rick Steves knows Europe inside and out from decades of traveling, leading tours, writing books, and producing episodes of his wonderful series  Rick Steves’ Europe.  

Rick Steves books are excellent guides and well worth the money. I highly recommend them, especially for travel planning beginners or for anxious travelers who are looking for an expert to tell them where to visit and how. 

His books are kept up to date and quite detailed, even to the point of including full guided walking tours (often several) and detailed guided tours through major sites.

  • Steves, Rick (Author)
  • English (Publication Language)
  • 604 Pages – 09/06/2022 (Publication Date) – Rick Steves (Publisher)

Rick Steves online 

You can also get a lot of good free travel tips and help on the Rick Steves website, including the forums . There are forums specifically for countries, reviews, and several forums about general travel tips topics. 

They’re a great way to get insight and tips from other experienced travelers…even those who disagree with Rick Steves itinerary suggestions. (Shocked face.)

Rick Steves Audio Europe Travel App 

I also highly recommend the Rick Steves Audio Europe Travel App . It’s loaded with audio guides for walking tours and top travel destination sites like the Colosseum in Rome and The Louvre Museum in Paris.  

Download the audio tours for your destination so you can listen to them on your mobile device as you explore your destination. 

Rough Guides: my favorite travel guidebooks overall 

Super practical and easy to read, Rough Guides are my top choice for any destination that isn’t in Europe (for which I prefer Rick Steves guide books ). 

The UK-based company was founded in 1982 with the  Rough Guide to Greece . Since then, they have published travel guidebooks for well over 100 destinations all over the world. 

In addition to their main guidebook series, they also offer Pocket Rough Guides, On a Budget, Snapshots, phrasebooks, and inspirational guides like “Make the Most of Your Time on Earth.”

  • 840 Pages – 10/18/2022 (Publication Date) – Rough Guides (Publisher)

Rough Guides website 

Rough Guides isn’t just a guidebook publisher though. Since 2017 they have offered tailor-made trips to over 70 destinations. created by local travel experts. 

Their website provides some basic itineraries, travel recommendations, and basic destination information for free that can help get you started on planning your travel itinerary . 

Fodor’s 

The great travel writer Eugene Fodor once said “You don’t need to be rich to travel well.” And that’s been kind of my mantra for the last several years. 

In 1936 Fodor wrote the first modern travel guide book . It was for British audiences and he wrote all 1200 pages himself. The book was O n the Continent: An Entertaining Travel Annual .

According to Fodors.com , “The guide went beyond reporting on the sights and for the first time included information about Europe’s culture and people, practical information like how to tip, and was the first to be annually updated.” 

Since  On the Continent  was first published, Fodor’s has been a trusted name in travel guides. They now claim that their travel writers have covered more than 8,000 destinations around the world . 

In addition to the Signature Guides, their other series include Fodor’s Inside, In Focus, and 25 Best. Fodor’s says that  Fodor’s   Italy  is the company’s top-selling guide book.

  • Fodor’s Travel Guides (Author)
  • 896 Pages – 12/20/2022 (Publication Date) – Fodor’s Travel (Publisher)

Fodor’s website 

Fodors.com was one of the first travel websites when it launched in 1996 . Today the site offers destination guides, general travel content, and forums about specific destinations or general travel topics such as air travel. 

Frommer’s 

The venerated Frommer’s travel guides were launched by Arthur Frommer in 1957 with a guide to visiting Europe on $5 a day (yup. $5.). That guide followed his book about how to travel Europe as a GI (Frommer was in the Army at the time). 

Frommer’s quickly grew to become one of the most trusted names in travel guidebooks. 

Several years ago, Frommer’s was acquired by Google, which pulled the plug on their print books in the spring of 2013.

Arthur Frommer reacquired the company shortly thereafter and then quickly made a deal to get the books back in distribution. Frommer’s then started emphasizing their Easy Guides and Day by Day series, which were smaller and easier to read and carry than the typical large guidebooks they saw on the market.

  • 602 Pages – 08/23/2022 (Publication Date) – FrommerMedia (Publisher)

Frommer’s website 

Frommers.com is a fine place to start planning for a trip for free. Destination information includes city layouts, how to get around, and their top picks for hotels and dining. 

They also provide other general travel content and feature articles plus trip ideas for honeymoons, arts and cultural travel, national parks, family travel, road trips, and more. 

The Frommer’s Travel Show (podcast) 

Pauline Frommer, daughter of Frommer’s founder Arthur Frommer, hosts The Frommer’s Travel Show podcast . New episodes come out approximately once per week or several times a month. 

Bradt Guides 

Known for publishing guides for lesser-traveled destinations (though certainly not less deserving), Bradt bills itself as “the world’s leading independent travel publisher.”  

Bradt guides are the go-to for destinations not covered by other publishers. They say that “over two-thirds of Bradt guides still have no direct competition from other publishers.” 

The Bradts’ first book,  Backpacking Along Ancient Ways Peru & Bolivia , was the first to detail the Inca Trail.

Later they became known for writing guides to destinations “post-conflict.” These included Rwanda, Kosovo, and the Baltic States after the fall of the Iron Curtain. 

In addition to their destination guidebooks, Bradt also publishes a Slow Travel series of UK destinations, a Wildlife series, and general travel literature.

Bradt Guides Travel Club 

Avid travelers can support Bradt by joining their Travel Club through Patreon. There are three tiers: Bradtpacker, Globetrotter, and First-Class Traveller. Each tier offers differing levels of subscriber benefits including things like e-books and access to their bespoke travel planning service. 

Lonely Planet  

Lonely Planet books for a long time were quite popular especially with younger backpackers looking to travel on a budget. The books can be light on the details that certain travelers (beginners, anxious travelers) might wish for when making good decisions about where to spend their travel dollars. 

Lonely Planet books are good for independent and adventurous travelers . Or for those who just want some recommendations but not a prescribed itinerary with a ton of detail.  

In addition to their popular guidebooks, Lonely Planet also publishes phrasebooks, general travel books, food books, and children’s books.

Lonely Planet website  

You can get some basic, inspirational travel information to start your travel planning from the Lonely Planet website . Sadly, they set their forums to “read-only” some time ago. In my opinion, the forums were the best (and most valuable) part of the website. 

Marco Polo 

Marco Polo is best known for its compact and colorful pocket travel guides. They also offer spiral-bound itinerary-based guides, phrasebooks, folding maps, travel handbooks, travel journals, city maps, and road atlases.

Marco Polo Discovery Tours App 

The free Marco Polo Discovery Tours app offers travelers a variety of guided itineraries through many destinations. For example, you can download a 23-day driving tour of New Zealand with a step-by-step driving tour over both islands. 

DK Eyewitness: among best travel books for visuals 

I enjoy reading DK Eyewitness guides, especially when I’m looking for information about the history and culture of my destination.  The glossy full-color books feature beautiful photographs and illustrations perfect for inspiring your travel itinerary. They cover more than 100 destinations. 

DK was founded in 1974 by Christopher Dorling and Peter Kindersley. They published their first travel book in the early 1990’s promising to show you “what others only tell you.”

They also cover all the usual grounds for travel guidebooks: itineraries, maps, dining and accommodations recommendations, top sites, etc.

Where to Go podcast 

Produced by the team behind the DK Eyewitness books, each episode of the Where to Go podcast dives deep into a particular destination. New episodes come out every two weeks or so. 

Insight Guides 

For more than 40 years, Insight Guides have published guidebooks covering more than 200 destinations. 

In my experience, they’re quite a bit heavier on destination history and culture than any other travel guide I’ve encountered. So, if that’s not something you enjoy, then these guidebooks might not be your top choice. 

Insight Guides series include: Explore Guides, City Breaks, Pocket Guides, City Guides, and Experience Guides.

Insight Guides website

You will find some travel information on the Insight Guides website , making it a decent place to start if you’re unsure of your destination.

The emphasis of their website seems to be on advertising their Insight Guides trip offerings…not that there’s anything wrong with that. 

Atlas Obscura 

Atlas obscura book .

Unlike all of the other travel guidebooks listed above, Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders is not a series of guidebooks but rather one book that details an incredible array of oddities and wonders around the world. 

Here’s how the authors describe their book and website (more on that below): 

“The site, and this book, are a kind of wunderkammer of places, a cabinet of curiosities that is meant to inspire wonderlust as much as wanderlust. In fact, many of the places in this book are in no way ‘tourist sites’ and should not be treated as such. Others are so out of the way, so treacherously situated, or (in at least one case) so deep beneath the surface, that few readers will ever be able to visit them. But here they are, sharing this marvelously strange planet with us.  Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras & Ella Morton,  Atlas Obscura , revised second edition, (New York: Workman Publishing, 2019) vii

The revised second edition (published in 2019) added more than 100 new sites to the 2016 first edition. The book is delightful reading if you’re into oddities around the world. I definitely recommend picking up a copy. 

Atlas Obscura

  • Hardcover Book
  • Foer, Joshua (Author)

Atlas Obscura website 

Make sure you stop by the Atlas Obscura website  during your travel planning if you like finding out-of-the-way sites, or unusual places to visit, or want to make it a priority to get off the beaten path. 

You can even take Atlas Obscura trips to some pretty unusual places and even with some unusual activities…such as assisting biologists with bee research at Redwood National Park. 

Atlas Obscura podcast 

Atlas Obscura launched a podcast in March 2021, which I’ve really enjoyed listening to. Early episodes covered sites such as the Gates of Hell in Turkmenistan, the Museum of Bad Art in Massachusetts, and the old Widow Jane cement mine in Rosendale, New York. 

Final thoughts on the best travel guidebooks 

The best travel guides will be the ones that you use and that help you plan a trip that you truly love. I personally like to use a combination of travel guidebooks and online travel planning resources. 

But don’t just follow my advice. Try these guidebook series and online travel guides for yourself and find the ones that you will like and use for your trip planning.

Michelin guides (the green books) are great!

I used to use the “Let’s Go: Europe” guides, which were great. They were targeting college age students mostly, but they had lots of good information re: trip planning for everyone.

Which guidebooks (and/or websites) are best for planning train/plane travel while in Europe? Any standouts?

Thanks for your very helpful information!

You’re welcome, Wayne. The Man in Seat 61 is THE expert in European train travel. His website is: https://www.seat61.com/ . He’s also pretty active on Twitter. I’d also recommend checking out https://www.rome2rio.com/ for helping with planning transportation for any trip. Thanks for reading!

My family had a great time in Paris. We had a wonderful time there and enjoyed the culture of the region. The nightlife was fantastic, and the city’s elegance is indescribable. We are in love with the place and explore so many places like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre Museum, Cruise on the Seine, etc. After reading your blog I would like to revisit there.

Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed your trip. Thanks for reading!

Amazing! I know nothing about traveling all over the country, what a wonderful looking place to explore.

TL;DR: The two best travel guides are Rick Steves for first time travelers—especially anyone going to Europe—and Bradt Guides for off-the-beaten-path destinations and “Slow Travel.” Both are reliable, will give you ideas for what to do, and help you plan the best trip.

The way we travel has changed drastically in my lifetime. Information is more readily available in the digital age, a massive plus for traveling. 

Everyone, including myself, wants to make the most of every trip abroad. That’s why I love reading travel guide books or online guides. 

Some of these guide books help you get off the beaten path. Others give information on tours you can take on your own to learn the history of a certain destination you’re visiting. 

But which are the best?

After years of reading and doing research, I have found the best travel guides for you to use when planning your next trip abroad!

Note: this article contains affiliate links, which help run this site at no extra cost to you so I can keep providing free travel advice and tips.

#1 DK Eyewitness

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of DK Eyewitness books.

DK Eyewitness is one of the best travel guide books on the market today. But they offer more than just travel information. 

After publishing books for over 45 years, DK Eyewitness Books cover everything from travel, science, history, pop culture, and children’s topics.

Their travel guides give the information you desperately need for travel– such as maps, itineraries, accommodations, where to eat, and more! 

I also love how easy their visuals are to look at. I sometimes get lost in their maps and start imagining myself there (I’m a big daydreamer if you can’t tell!).

DK Eyewitness Travel guide books might not be the most in-depth on a particular location, but they help with travel inspiration. 

If you want more information, DK Eyewitness has a podcast called ‘Where to Go,’ which is another excellent way to get your travel information on the go!

  • 100+ destinations
  • Heavy on history
  • It has both outdoor and city guides
  • Amazing visuals
  • Not as in-depth as other guides

#2 Bradt Guides

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Bradt Guides Books.

A Bradt travel guide is perfect if you’re interested in visiting countries that are less traveled to— written by experienced travelers with fantastic insider tips. 

Bradt travel guide books has a reputation as the “World’s leading independent travel publisher.” They are also the best India travel guide company.

Some unique destinations include Iraq, Sri Lanka, Galapagos Islands, and Grenada. But don’t worry. Bradt Guides also has a British series for those interested! 

Lately, I’ve been striving to travel like a local. Bradt has a ‘Slow Travel’ guidebook series, which I love using these days because it helps me travel like a local. 

The trip ideas are great in detail but might not be for your preferred country to visit. 

Bradt Guides prides itself on being the most comprehensive on the market. Their authors give cultural insights and expressions of interest and knowledge.

You can support Bradt’s Guides even further by subscribing to their Patreon! Here you can pay monthly for a specific tier and earn different things like one free e-book a month.

  • More off-the-beaten-path destinations
  • Slow travel series
  • Has a Patreon page
  • Unique style of travel not for everyone

#3 Rick Steves

Rick Steves books are the guide books your mom hands you when traveling to your dream destination in Europe. And that’s a good thing! They’re trusted by many for a reason.

These travel guide books are always up-to-date, thanks to Rick Steves’ research partners. 

Rick’s books will have you feeling like you’re on guided tours! He ensures you’ll have some fantastic cultural experiences. 

I love Europe, but there are many other cultures throughout the world that I’m even more interested in. So, since Rick Steves’ guidebooks are primarily Europe-focused, I’m not as drawn to them.

Also, traveling in Europe long-term can get expensive. His books cater to a more wealthy crowd. 

Pick any European country, and you will have high-quality content on that destination. Rick has visited Europe countless times, and other travel websites can’t compete. 

Rick’s bestseller is his Italy guide, which isn’t surprising. In that guide, he goes over the best places to eat and sleep and how to beat the crowds. 

It’s a good idea to grab a Rick Steves’ book simply for the detailed maps.

  • Best guides for Europe
  • It gives in-depth information for solo tours
  • Perfect for a beginner traveler.
  • Catered to upper and middle-class travelers

#4 Lonely Planet

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Lonely Planet Books.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Lonely Planet , as they’ve been a dominant force in the travel scene for quite some time now. Their goal is to make travel planning easy, and they’ve succeeded!  

I loved using Lonely Planet books when I first started traveling. These books helped me up my game as a budget traveler. 

Lonely Planet dominates the internet with a wealth of online resources. While the information they offer online is easy to access, it can be vague. 

You can subscribe to Lonely Planet on their website for free. I’ve done this, but I’ve found that there tends to be some destinations/articles that are low in detail. 

Considering Lonely Planet’s sheer amount of content, it’s not too surprising that they sometimes gloss over details. 

Their claim to fame is their numerous experts located worldwide. These experts cover adventure travel, family holidays, food and drink, and much more. 

Plus, a Lonely Planet magazine is an amazing coffee table piece, am I right?

  • Backpacker friendly
  • An extensive collection of guides for the entire world
  • Free information is available
  • Some of their content is outdated or not detailed

#5 Blue Guides

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Blue Guides Books.

If you love the art and history of Italy, then Blue Guides is for you! People often plagiarize Blue Guide books due to the amount of accurate information each book has. 

With over 14 books on Italy alone, you won’t find more detailed information on a particular destination than with Blue Guides– they deliver it all! 

Italy was the first country that I visited outside of the United States, and I’m so glad that I had a Blue Guide book with me. 

Their award-winning maps and exceptional attention to detail made it feel like I was on a private tour! 

Be aware: there aren’t a lot of online articles from Blue Guides or many countries to choose from, which could be an issue if you like to visit more unusual locations.

Blue Guides’ first publication date was in the early 1900s, so it’s undoubtedly a top guidebook for a travel junkie!

  • Helps travelers understand art and history
  • Multiple guides on Italy
  • Extremely thorough in their research
  • Not a lot of destinations

#6 Footprint Guides

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Footprint Guides Books.

Footprint Guides is the go-to source for Latin American travel tips for all budgets! My love for this region of the world has only grown since I started using their books.

Even if Latin America isn’t one of your top destinations, they do offer other print books. All Footprint Guides are written by experts who have lived in that destination. 

Unfortunately, for North American travelers looking to plan a dream road trip, you won’t find much helpful information here, as their focus is decidedly on the south. 

Alongside their practical information, Footprint adds a layer of imagination to their guidebooks, giving them an edge that makes them one of the best travel guide series available today!

  • Wide range of budgets
  • Specializes in Latin America
  • Practical information
  • Not much content on the United States

#7 Frommer Guides

Frommer Guides

Does traveling on $5 per day sound appealing to you? Arthur Frommer thought so when he set out to create his Frommer travel guides . 

Alongside some of the best guidebooks, Frommer also offers other forms of information, including podcasts, online articles, and hotel deals!

I love using Frommer guides on road trips because they help me in many different situations. 

I usually like to have a podcast for when I’m driving , a guidebook on specific destinations while I’m in a hotel room, and online sources when on the go. 

Having Frommer guides in all their varied forms is essential since each one typically doesn’t go into heavy detail. 

If purchasing travel guide books doesn’t interest you, then keeping up to date with Frommer’s online travel guides is the way to go.

  • Many styles of information are available
  • Updates information frequently
  • Offer hotel deals
  • It covers only the main details

#8 Tripadvisor

Screenshot of the of the Tripadvisor website homepage.

Tripadvisor is an online source that most travelers have heard about. It’s unique on this list of travel guides because you interact with other travelers!

If you’re looking for help with trip planning, look no further than the Tripadvisor forum . Here you can talk with fellow travelers about your upcoming trip! 

When I have a specific question that needs answering, I always check Tripadvisor first. They have information on most countries, but some info on the forums can be outdated. 

Tripadvisor is great because it’s free! But they’re more than just a review and forum-based platform; you can also book different travel deals and tours through their website.

Sometimes the sheer amount of information can be overwhelming to click through.  If that sounds relatable, you might want to purchase some guidebooks instead. 

Tripadvisor started the wave of online travel planning. They’re worth browsing, even if you just want to write down a few travel tips!

  • Multiple reviews from other travelers
  • Travel deals available
  • Forum can be out of date
  • The massive amount of information can be overwhelming

#9 Rough Guides

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Rough Guides Books.

Rough Guides has grown into a leader in the travel industry with its amazing travel guidebooks and online travel guides. 

What I love about these books is their authenticity. Their recommendations from locals helped to grow them into who they are today.

It all started with their Greece travel guide, and it quickly blew up. Demand increased for more and more Rough Guide content; they released a guidebook series for people who were eager for more. In 2017, Rough Guides expanded even further.

Today Rough Guides are more than just a travel guide company that sells books. They offer tours, custom-made itineraries, and more! I love using their website when planning my next trip. 

These custom-made itineraries and tours are expensive but for a reason. Rough Guides’ experts are located worldwide to give you the best travel experience ever. 

Rough Guides best selling guides offer a ton of background information and local tips, making them worth the high price!

  • Detailed itineraries
  • Personal recommendations from locals
  • An extensive list of countries
  • High prices for tours and custom itineraries

#10 Moon Travel Guides

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Moon Travel Guides Books.

Moon Guides are my favorite guidebooks for traveling around the United States. Planning that perfect road trip is challenging but Moon Guides makes it easier.

Moon’s travel guidebooks are all about traveling sustainably. I’ve used them countless times in the Americas and have found them super helpful.

But Moon Guides don’t focus on the Americas only– they also offer some of the best travel guides for Japan in particular.

I’ve learned to use these books more for research instead of bringing them on my travels– they don’t always hold up with how rugged traveling can get for me.

Moon’s detailed maps are so good in their guidebooks that I fill my phone library with them. They are easy to read and use, which is what I think makes a good map. 

The best travel tips are from locals, and that’s what Moon’s travel guidebooks bring. They don’t have a fancy touring app or anything, but they don’t need it. 

If you want one of the best travel guides for families, then there’s no better choice than making Moon Guides your tour guide when traveling. 

Find your dream destination, get travel inspiration from their maps, and book that plane ticket.

  • Emphasis on the Americas and the Pacific
  • Easy-to-understand maps
  • Many pages of information solely for hotels/accommodations
  • Guidebooks aren’t durable

#11 Insight Guides

Screenshot of a search result page showing a selection of Insight Guides Books.

Insight is one of the best travel guidebooks on the market for a reason. The beautiful photographs in these travel guidebooks will have you daydreaming for days.

Insight guides are perfect for those history buffs out there like me. They combine great information with also some off-the-beaten-track activities. 

Insight has produced over 200 guidebooks and language books. Their books provide information on nearly any country you can think of (besides Mexico).

I love their books because they also have a mini-series.

During the Covid years, I was in the mood to read a lot. I picked a different destination each week and bought a new e-book. 

I could do this because they only cost five to ten dollars! Most of the best travel guidebooks are double this.   

Besides its guidebook series, Insight offers a handmade trip planned by experts to the destination of your choice. What more could you ask for?!

  • Multiple countries in each continent
  • Has language guides
  • Sells hand-picked vacation packages put together by locals
  • Offers mini versions of guides to sell for cheap
  • No Mexico guide

Buying Guide: How to Choose the Best Travel Guide

A man wearing a red and black checkered shirt reading an open guide book holds hands with woman in a black and white striped tank top, jeans, and a wide-brimmed hat while walking down a European-looking cobblestone street.

What to Look for in Travel Guides

Is the information up to date.

Picking the best travel guidebooks can be an overwhelming process. But the most important thing to watch out for is making sure the information is up-to-date.

Compared to online sources, guidebook information tends not to get updated as quickly for obvious reasons. 

You don’t want a travel guide taking you to a restaurant that doesn’t exist anymore, do you? No. You want to get off the beaten track but not THAT off that it gets you lost.

Pick Locally-Based Travel Guides

My ideal travel style is meeting locals, living, and eating like a local. I have the best travel experiences when I dive deep into the culture.

The best information about a destination comes from locals. When you’re planning a trip to Costa Rica, wouldn’t you want to consult someone who has lived there for many years?

When you rely on locals’ recommendations, you’ll truly have an experience of a lifetime. 

Know What Type of Traveler You Are

A young woman in a peach tank top and sunglasses holds a travel guide book under one arm, and checks her phone.

This next tip can be difficult for some, and it can change from year to year. I have gone from being a true budget traveler to somewhere in the middle. 

I used to love history (I still do) and would base my travels around that. Now I seek adventure activities. 

Different types of guides will focus on different things, such as budget travel, adventure, expensive tours, food, or history. 

Finding the travel guide that fits your style will be more beneficial in the long run.

Know Which Destination You Want to Visit the Most

The best world travel guidebooks are often better for certain locations than others. For example, Rick Steves has a reputation for being the best travel guide for Europe and, specifically, the best travel guide for Italy. 

So, choose your travel guide based on which one specializes in the area you’re curious about.

Other Helpful Travel Guides

Travel is a huge industry which means there are more guides than you could ever possibly use. 

If you prefer your travel content in video form, one of the best travel guide Youtube channels is Ryan Shirley . 

His videos showcase the top places to visit in different countries with some of the best drone shots you’ll ever see. 

FAQs About Travel Guides

A woman with short brown hair wearing a black and white striped tank top squints as she opens a Lonely Planet book on Myanmar in front of a blurred background.

Should You Even Buy a Travel Guide?

A travel guide has its place. It may seem outdated to use one, but you can find some of the best information in them. 

Some guides take years to make and are very specific in the details they write for certain locations. The maps tend to be better and easier to read in these types of guides as well.  

Which is better: Lonely Planet or Rough Guide?

It depends on the style of travel you prefer. I prefer budget travel and tend to take fewer tours, so I like Lonely Planet. Rough Guide also has amazing tours if you’re interested in those.

What is the difference between Fodor’s and Frommer’s travel guides?

Frommer travel guides are excellent for those who want an easy read. Fodor is typically the better choice if you want more details about your activities. 

Fodor also has one of the best travel guides for Ireland, so check out Fodor if that’s your destination.

Is it better to travel with a tour guide or alone with a travel guide?

The answer differs from person to person! If you want your trip planned, then a tour guide is perfect. Going alone with a travel guide is nice because you can go at your own pace. 

Do people still buy travel guides?

Absolutely! There’s something different about having a travel guidebook to look at rather than scrolling through a website. 

Rick Steves and Bradt are my favorite travel guides.

Elite Lakes: A Travel Guide to the Harris Chain

While the city of Leesburg hosts the different B.A.S.S. events generally in the spring months, there are plenty of reasons to visit the area year-round.

The Harris Chain — this legendary cluster of eight bonafide bucket list bass fisheries anchors Central Florida’s thriving angling community. A regular feature on the Bassmaster Elite Series and Bassmaster Opens, the Harris Chain is also a hub of activity for local and regional bass clubs year-round. And there’s good reason too — when these lakes are full of vegetation, they’re absolutely brimming with high quality, hard-fighting Florida bass.

While the city of Leesburg hosts the 2024 Lowrance Bassmaster Elite at Harris Chain in April, there are plenty of reasons to visit the area year-round.

Getting your grub on

Fuel up on traditional American bar food at Hurricane Dockside Grill in Tavares, home of a monster bacon cheeseburger loaded with fried egg, onion rings, enormous beer pretzels and baskets of loaded nachos. This national chain has made itself at home on the Dead River Canal between Lake Eustis and Lake Harris, making it an easy pit stop in between waypoints.

Not far from the shores of Lake Harris proper, Luna Azul Authentic Mexican in Leesburg has garnered a mythical status among bass fishing photographers for healthy servings of frozen margaritas, top-tier chips and salsa and a legendary carne asada burrito loco. Save this one for the postgame.

Celebrate a new personal best at the Goblin Market Restaurant & Lounge in Mount Dora. Handmade craft cocktails — think of a honey crisp old fashioned, strawberry-yuzu vodka sour or tiki-inspired vida verde — highlight a menu headlined by more refined options like petite filet chèvre, New Zealand rack of lamb and honey-lavender duck breast served in a laid-back setting that’s part Cracker Barrel and part French farmhouse. Dinner reservations recommended.

In no small part thanks to the proliferation of Rock N’ Roll Sushi locations spread throughout the bass fishing homeland of Alabama, Elite Series pros and support systems have a delayed love affair with sushi. Satisfy your own sushi craving at Wave Asian Bistro & Sushi , where sashimi and rolls pair perfectly with spicy butter krab bao buns, street corn and pork gyoza. Wave serves everything from sushi pizza to sushi burritos and donuts (surprisingly delicious).

travel guide facebook

Cabins, campsites and comfortable confines

Vacation rentals abound around the Harris Chain, some offering waterfront views and personal docks for a premium. However, more traditional confines like a Best Western, Hampton Inn and Comfort Suites are clustered in Leesburg offering reliable, if unexciting, lodging options.

For the more adventurous, Lake Griffin State Park provides the opportunity to slide into a shaded campsite beside one of the largest and oldest live oaks in Florida. Campsites here can accommodate both RVs and camper trucks. On-site showers and a double-wide boat ramp add to the allure.

During peak season, the 889-site Encore Southern Palms RV Resort provides a respite among the pines. This sprawling RV park features an on-site clubhouse with a fitness center, swimming pool and hot tub as well as Wi-Fi and laundry facilities. Both gravel pads for RVs and a limited number of motel rooms are available.

Nearby Fisherman’s Cove Marina harbors more than 300 campsites on concrete pads alongside 60 boat slips and a marine fuel station. A nine-hole golf course provides a year-round escape from harder days on the water, while annual golf cart drive-in movies from December to May provide fun for the family.

travel guide facebook

More family fun

Named for a landmark 184-foot hill, the town of Mount Dora is a quaint callback to America’s Main Street yesteryear. Though Leesburg is typically the hub of tournament activity on the Harris Chain, Mount Dora is flourishing with actives for a family escape. The Lake Dora Historic District features dozens of well-preserved historic homes and commercial buildings that merge into a walkable downtown brimming with antique shops and eateries.

The Mount Dora Trolley provides a one-hour historic tour twice daily, and Mount Dora Transit provides golf cart tours to the town’s historic sites — including the oldest inland yacht club in Florida. Make time to take a selfie with Old Joe, the 15-foot bronze alligator eternally sunning on the Palm Island Boardwalk. Swing by Renninger’s Flea and Farmer’s Market where a 200-booth antique mall filled with all manner of tackle shop oddities awaits.

Strap yourself to an outboard motor and a pair of pontoons on a Catboat tour of the Dora Canal. CatBoat Adventures operates this wild, unique way to navigate the Harris Chain’s smaller canals and tributaries via two-person catamarans

Near Leesburg, Flat Island Nature Preserve gives travelers a chance to stroll through sandy, single-track trails beneath swaying palms. Try the Daubenmire Trail for a fast, 3.7-mile loop maintained by the Florida Trail Association.

Wildlife fans can wander nearly endlessly inside Seminole State Forest , near Eustis. This labyrinth of hammocks, sand hills, wetlands and hidden springs harbors more than 20 miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Keep an eye out for Florida scrub jays, red-headed woodpeckers, indigo buntings and nighthawks.

Introduction

Using affirm, major retailers that accept affirm, stores that accept affirm financing.

Affiliate links for the products on this page are from partners that compensate us (see our advertiser disclosure with our list of partners for more details). However, our opinions are our own. See how we rate personal loans to write unbiased product reviews.

What is Affirm?

Maybe you're working on a tight budget, but you need to buy something important, you want to take advantage of an online sales event, or you have gifts to buy for everyone in your life. What do you do? Short of having an awkward conversation with a friend or family member to borrow some money, there's a more convenient way to manage how you pay for online purchases, on your own terms. 

Benefits of using Affirm for purchases

Affirm is a payment option you'll see when you check out your cart at many online shopping sites. It's especially useful for large purchases such as furniture and mattresses because it lets you pay them off over a period of time (usually three, six, or 12 months).

Annual percentage rates (APRs) vary widely with Affirm, ranging from 0% to 30%, so you'll want to compare and contrast with other loan options including credit cards first. That said, you'll always be shown upfront the total amount of interest you'll pay. Affirm does not charge any additional fees. 

You can apply for a loan as you're shopping at one of many Affirm's partner stores, which include women's and men's fashion, furniture, kitchenware, home appliances, sports and fitness, electronics, jewelry, and watch brands.

When it comes time to pay, you'll see something like the below: 

From there, you can create an account, get approved for a loan, and pay off your purchase at a pace you're comfortable with. 

Technology and electronics

  • Auto Anything
  • Morris 4X4 Center

Home and furniture

You may want to also consider one of the top credit cards with 0% APR to finance bigger home purchases like electronics from Best Buy or furniture from Pottery Barn.

  • Bed in a Box
  • Boll & Branch
  • Brooklyn Bedding
  • East Fork Pottery
  • Floyd Home *
  • Framebridge
  • Great Jones
  • Joss and Main
  • Pottery Barn
  • Revival Rugs
  • Saatchi Art
  • Serena & Lily

You can get an Affirm loan with several popular mattress retailers, including Casper and Nectar.

  • Allswell Home
  • Awara Sleep
  • Dreamcloud *
  • Eight Sleep
  • Layla Sleep *
  • Tuft & Needle *

Fashion and Apparel

If you're looking to up your style game, you have several options that take Affirm, including big-box retailer Walmart and shoe titan Adidas.

  • Cole Haan *
  • Eddie Bauer *
  • La Garconne
  • Universal Standard *

Accessories

You can use an Affirm loan to purchase watches and glasses from retailers including Lenscrafters and Warby Parker.

  • Felix Gray *
  • Glasses.com *
  • Lenscrafters
  • Warby Parker *

Health and fitness

Borrowers looking to focus on their health and wellbeing will find that Affirm can finance more expensive purchases. This includes products like a kayak from the Austin Kayak Company or an exercise bike from Peloton. 

  • Austin Kayak Company

Loans from Affirm aren't just for material items — you can also use them to book hotels, airlines and vacation rentals through the travel portals we've included below. 

  • CheapTickets
  • Travelocity

No, you cannot use Affirm at any store. However, Affirm partners with thousands of retailers across various categories, so you have a wide range of participating stores to choose from, both online and brick-and-mortar.

Affirm charges 0% to 30% APR based on your creditworthiness and the specific retailer. Some purchases may also qualify for 0% APR, which makes them interest-free as long as you adhere to the repayment schedule.

To know if an online store accepts Affirm, look for the Affirm logo at checkout or select Affirm as your payment option. You can also find a list of participating stores on the Affirm website.

Yes, you can return an item purchased with Affirm, but returns are subject to the retailer's return policy. Upon processing, Affirm will refund the amount you've already paid and cancel any future payments related to that purchase.

An Affirm loan may involve a soft credit check, which does not affect your credit score. However, like any credit product, your payment history can impact your credit score.

Where to See Your Next Eclipse, From Iceland to Australia

By Maya Silver

The totality of an eclipse is never long enough. My first total solar eclipse experience in 2017 made for the shortest two minutes of my life: the sun transforming into a blazing diamond ring, the beautiful delirium of darkness, that perfect circle in the sky. Before I knew it, the eclipse was over—and my friends and I were plotting how we could catch our next.

During my second total eclipse in Ohio, I savored nearly double that time—four minutes of totality. Those extra moments gave me time to tune into the full sensory experience. As birds slowed their songs, crickets filled the false twilight with their chirping. All the people around me fell silent amid the cool, still air, and the corona of the sun radiated and wisped above. It wasn’t long after those beautiful four minutes ended that I began scheming, again, about my next opportunity to relive the cosmic experience. Now, I’ve fully embraced my identity as an umbraphile —literally, a “shadow lover,” but better known as someone who chases total solar eclipses.

For umbraphiles like myself based in the United States, the next total solar eclipse to hit the US is in 2033—although it will only grace the western half of Alaska , along with Russia . In 2044, another total solar eclipse will swoop across Canada into Montana and the Dakotas . The next “Great American Eclipse” to cut across a wide swath of the nation won’t arrive until 2045 , though that one will stretch all the way from Northern California to Florida , across Utah , Colorado , Georgia , and many more states.

If you can’t bear to wait more than two decades for that stunning event, the good news is that many more eclipses will occur before then—you just have to go abroad to catch them. Whether you saw the 2024 total solar eclipse and are eager to plan your next trip to the path of totality, or you missed it and want to discover what all the hype is about, consider this your guide to seeing a total solar eclipse in the next four years.

Image may contain Nature Night Outdoors Sky and Aurora

In 2026, travelers to Iceland will have the chance to catch the solar eclipse and northern lights on one trip.

August 12, 2026: The Arctic, Iceland, and Spain

Your earliest chance to catch another total solar eclipse is August 12, 2026 , when the path of totality will curve northeast across the Arctic Ocean and south through remote eastern Greenland , terminating in the Balearic Sea just east of Mallorca . While there are several worthy destinations for umbraphiles during the 2026 eclipse, the totality experience will be relatively short, lasting only 1-2 minutes, depending on where you are within the path.

One spot to add to your eclipse planning list is Western Iceland , where you may also be able to catch Northern Lights on your trip to enhance the cosmic experience. The capital of Reykjavik sits on the edge of totality, making it a fine and accessible viewing destination. The downside? Totality will only last a minute there. To extend the experience, head about three hours west by car. Snæfellsjökull National Park —a seaside park named for a volcano and glacier—will experience 2 minutes and 10 seconds of totality. Stay in the nearby hamlet of Búðir, about 30 minutes away. Or head to the village of Patreksfjordur in the Westfjords, about a five-hour drive from Reykjavik for a similarly longer totality.

If a more Mediterranean eclipse experience appeals, the spot to be is Spain. The path of totality will also clip northeastern Portugal . In northern Spain, the medieval cities of Oviedo (1 minute and 49 seconds totality) or Burgo (1 minute and 44 seconds totality) are good places to watch, right in the center of the totality path. For a more urban experience, consider Zaragoza (1 minute and 24 seconds of totality) or seaside Valencia (1 minute totality).

Perhaps the most unique place to take in the 2026 eclipse in Spain is upon the island of Mallorca. Partying in Palma, reveling in secluded beaches, or overlooking the sea upon the island’s limestone cliffs would all make enviable ways to take in the 1 minute and 36 seconds of totality. With around 300 days of sunshine annually, Mallorca is also a safe bet for clear skies. If you prefer to leave the planning to the pros, consider a guided eclipse trip through a company like Sirius Travel , which is also offering an Iceland eclipse trip. Note that some other guided 2026 eclipse tours are already sold out , so don’t wait to reserve.

One of the most unusual places to witness an eclipse is aboard a cruise ship , and there are already several potential options available—after all, this eclipse is only a couple years out and plans are underway. Bundle up and hop aboard the Greenland Solar Eclipse cruise hosted by Albatros Expeditions . The 13-day itinerary includes a tour of fjords and glaciers, a visit to Nuuk, and of course, the 2-minute, 17-second totality experience (starting at $19,600 per person). Cunard is offering three solar eclipse cruise experiences : one through Norway and Iceland, and two more near Spain and the Mediterranean.

August 2, 2027: Northern Africa and the Middle East

Just a year later, another eclipse will travel across Northern Africa and the western edge of the Middle East —this one with a prodigiously long totality time. The eclipse will cross over the southern tip of Spain and Gibraltar, which will enjoy 4 minutes and 28 seconds of totality.

Across Northern Africa, several cities make excellent viewing points. The beaches of Tangier , Morocco, will take in 4 minutes and 50 seconds totality. In Tunisia , the ancient oasis of Gafsa will clock over 5 minutes of totality.

For the longest totality time, consider Luxor, Egypt , which will see a stunning 6 minutes and 22 seconds of darkness, likely amid sunny skies. This is only about a minute shy of the known record for longest totality time : 7 minutes and 28 seconds, back in 743 B.C. Besides, could anything eclipse the mystical sight of a pyramid than a literal eclipse darkening the skies above the Ancient Egyptian monuments?

Cruises and guided tours for the 2027 eclipse are also already on offer. Take a cruise through the Mediterranean with Eclipse Tours and witness totality at sea (starting at $4,999), or tour Morocco and enjoy the eclipse from a beach with Astro Tours (price unlisted).

July 22, 2028: Australia and New Zealand

If you can wait four years, consider an eclipse trip to Oceania . This eclipse will traverse central Australia and southern New Zealand , and there are many incredible spots to consider within the path for your viewing experience, whether you prefer to dance in the darkness or be immersed in the wild.

In Australia, Sydney is smack dab in the middle of the 2028 path , with 3 minutes and 49 seconds of totality. While no festivals or events are in the works yet, have no doubt Australia will rise to the occasion. For a more nature-based experience, consider the ancient rock formations and trails of Mirima National Park ; stay in the nearby town of Kununurra. This area will enjoy just under three minutes of totality. Of course, an Australia eclipse-themed cruise already awaits, too, though the eclipse itself is to be viewed on land (starting at $14,500).

In New Zealand, enjoy nearly three minutes of totality include Queenstown and Dunedin. Take in the New Zealand eclipse from the stunning shores of Lake Wakatipu of Queenstown, where you can chase the rush of an eclipse with one of the world’s highest bungee jumps . Amid the Scottish-meets-Maori heritage of Dunedin, bookend the eclipse with a visit to the Larnach Castle or the Otago Peninsula and its penguins.

Tips for planning an eclipse trip around the world

You’re not the only traveler drawn to the elusive experience of a total eclipse—which is why places in the path of totality tend to experience a massive spike in tourism . Lodging books early, prices surge, rental cars run out, and those who fail to plan in advance are often left high and dry—or forced to spend a small fortune.

My advice on preparing for an eclipse trip in the US applies doubly when it comes to an international voyage to the path of totality. Here are a few key pointers before you plan your trip, whether to the Arctic, Spain, Egypt, or Australia:

It’s never too early to book: Some tours are already sold out, while hotel reservations are sure to go fast. Make your reservations as soon as you can, especially for the 2026 eclipse—you can always cancel later if your trip falls through. This applies to rental cars and flights as well.

Give yourself a buffer around the eclipse: Don’t plan to show up the day before the eclipse or day of, nor should you plan to depart the day of or day after. Adding some wiggle room will allow you to maximize the serenity of the experience, rather than sabotage it with the chaos of eclipse travel.

Get to your viewing spot at least a few hours in advance: This way your plans won’t be foiled by any unexpected traffic, you can find the perfect perch, and you’ll have time to set up any camera tripods or telescopes.

Hold on to your eclipse glasses—or buy them early: Don’t plan to pick up a pair at your destination. And make sure they’re ISO certified .

Finally, turn your eclipse travels into a longer trip of about a week or two. Look into local observatories or stargazing tours to up the astronomical ante. A few months ahead, research eclipse festivals, events, and viewing parties, if that’s of interest. Meet some fellow travelers who you might be interested in viewing with. Then, one to six minutes of totality will just the pinnacle of your celestially inspired trip, rather than entirety of it.

A massive storm wreaks havoc on the Unmoored World in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is about the journey, not the destination. It’s about exploring routes you’ve never taken before, camping in the wilderness, and having an unexpected run in with a Minotaur. Quests objectives are also left intentionally vague, forcing you to puzzle things out and speak to as many people as you can. If you could just easily fast travel to obvious quest markers you could certainly check them off your list more efficiently, but then you’d miss out entirely on the adventure of getting there.

[ Ed. note: This post contains spoilers for the Dragon’s Dogma 2 endgame.]

Then, you beat the game and the credits roll. However, if you don’t like that “ending” you can start the apocalypse instead. The sky turns an ugly crimson; the oceans dry up; the dead rise from their ancient graves. It’s rough out there.

Your goals then become much simpler in this Unmoored World . Just go to four points on the map and do two things:

  • Defeat a boss monster
  • Help any nearby townsfolk evacuate to a central city

To make this task easier, the game tweaks or outright removes a bunch of its mechanical friction. More fast travel hubs called portcrystals appear on the map, making it much easier to just fast travel to each quest marker. This wouldn’t have mattered much earlier in the game since you need to use up a rare ferrystone each time you fast travel, but now, monsters drop this item regularly. With all the lakes, rivers, and oceans dried up, you aren’t forced to take out-of-the-way bridges to reach your destination, either.

As you rescue each town, you also begin to assemble a central hub town that makes optimizing your gear much easier. All four blacksmith types eventually reside there, along with the duplicator and the Dragonforged. Instead of running all around the map to craft the best weapons, everybody you need is a few efficient steps away. It’s also much easier to get the best enhancement materials since high level monsters start prowling everywhere, especially in the dried up oceans.

A dragon recoils from damage in Dragon’s Dogma 2

I didn’t actually go to the Unmoored World right away. Instead, I started a new game plus after defeating the Dragon so I could experience some of the quests I’d missed from earlier in the game and level up more of my vocations. So after weeks of playing the game and absorbing complaints about its fast travel and “game-breaking” microtransactions , the Unmoored World’s design choices almost felt like a response. Here’s everything you were screaming for: easy fast travel, an efficient hub world, and no-nonsense quest design!

This tracks with the game’s narrative too. You’ve broken all the rules to get to this place, so the game’s rules are broken too. You’ve taken on god(?) and ushered in a new, albeit broken, world where the game doesn’t get in your way of completing your tasks and doing what you want.

But once you finish the simple objectives in front of you and there’s nothing left to do, eating all of this dessert gets boring. You aren’t really seeing the countryside anymore – just blinking from portcrystal to portcrystal. You’ll quickly tire of returning the undead to their graves since they never stop rising from the ground. You can’t even enjoy camping with your pawns anymore because of the aforementioned undead and also because time is itself a crucial resource as you rush to rescue everyone while resting as little as possible. Eventually, the day/night cycle blurs into one unending twilight and you can’t rest at all anymore as time figuratively stops.

You can play this way as long as you’ve got wakestones to heal yourself, farming high level monsters to enhance your gear, but it eventually feels hollow without any of Dragon Dogma’s 2 weird charms . It’s fun to revel in the excesses of the late game but it also puts into sharp relief why the developers made the decisions they did about fast travel and quest design. When you finally tire of this broken but very efficient world, you can end the apocalypse by starting a new game plus, more ready than ever to just enjoy the journey.

Didn’t make eclipse plans? Here’s what to know and how to view it.

Thousands of people from around New England and beyond are heading north to Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine to view the solar eclipse today, setting up camp in cities like Burlington, Vt.; Colebrook, N.H.; and Jackman, Maine — which land along the path of totality .

But if you didn’t make plans to travel to totality — couldn’t get off work, didn’t want to deal with the traffic, or just didn’t think of it in time — you can still catch the partial eclipse with Boston and the rest of Massachusetts seeing more than 90% of totality.

The weather forecast is looking mostly good , said Boston Globe meteorologist Ken Mahan, with temperatures in the Boston area reaching 60-plus degrees for the first time this month. And cloud coverage should be kept mostly at bay during eclipse time, making for a clear and comfortable viewing experience.

Here’s how to view the partial solar eclipse, even if you’re piecing together last-minute plans.

How can I get eclipse viewing glasses?

Sunglasses won’t cut it. Make sure your eclipse glasses meet the international safety standards for solar viewing — you should see an “ISO 12312-2″ code labeled somewhere on the shades.

According to NASA, it is not safe to look directly at the sun without specialized eye protection for solar viewing, even if you’re looking through a camera lens, binoculars, or telescope, which also should be equipped with special-purpose solar filters.

Eyeware retailer Warby Parker was giving out free eclipse viewing glasses, but if you haven’t snagged a pair yet, you’re too late — the stores are out of stock. You can still visit the Warby Parker website to download and print their DIY eclipse pinhole projector , which will allow you to safely observe the eclipse through a projection.

If you can’t get your hands on a pair of eclipse glasses (Boston Public Library locations are also out of stock), you can create your own DIY indirect viewer using an empty paper towel roll or cereal box, some foil, and paper.

What exactly is a total solar eclipse, anyway?

A total solar eclipse is the result of a cosmic coincidence, according to NASA. It occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth, casting a shadow that completely blocks the face of the sun in some areas, plunging them into darkness.

Although the sun is about 400 times bigger than the moon, it is also about 400 times farther away, making them almost exactly the same size in our sky, according to NASA.

The path of totality, where the moon will completely cover the sun, cuts across the United States beginning around 2:30 p.m. at the Texas-Mexico border before exiting the US in northern Maine at around 3:30 p.m. In areas outside the path, viewers can see a partial eclipse, where the moon casts a partial shadow over the sun to varying degrees depending on how far you are from the path.

The last total solar eclipse visible from North America was in 2017. The next one visible from the contiguous US won’t be for two more decades , in August 2044, according to NASA.

What time will the eclipse happen?

In Boston, the partial eclipse will start at 2:16 p.m., and reach its peak at 3:29 p.m.

Along the path of totality, the total eclipse will last for three minutes, the only time when it’s safe for viewers to look at the sun without eye protection. In Massachusetts, you’ll need protection throughout the duration of the partial eclipse, since the moon won’t fully cover the sun’s rays at any point.

If I didn’t plan a trip to the path of totality, where can I view the eclipse?

There are lots of viewing events being hosted throughout Boston, such as at the Brighton Branch Library , Somerville’s Central Library , Cambridge’s Main Library , and across the state, including several state parks .

The Boston Calendar compiled a list of 18 events in and around Boston for community eclipse viewing, including at various rooftops, parks, and museums.

And if you don’t have time to make it to a viewing party, you can always just step outside and take a look for yourself, with proper eclipse viewing glasses.

What will the partial eclipse look like in Massachusetts?

In the path of totality, with the sun entirely blocked by the moon, daylight will turn to darkness , and a “360 degree” sunset will emerge. The air will get colder, and winds will change. As the moon eclipses the sun, viewers will witness little filaments of sunlight called Baily’s beads, which will disappear one by one and merge to form a “diamond-ring effect,” only a faint corona around the sun left visible.

Meanwhile, in places outside the path of totality, the moon will just partially cover the sun, giving it a crescent shape. In Boston and other parts of Massachusetts, only a small sliver of the sun will be visible. It won’t be as dramatic as totality, but the lighting outside will dim noticeably.

Caity Sullivan, a planetarium educator at the Museum of Science, told WBUR that the change in light will be “somewhere between a very cloudy day and dusk,” and the temperature may drop a few degrees as well.

If you really can’t make it out of the house or office, the total solar eclipse will also be livestreamed on the Globe website and via the Globe app . It can also be viewed using the NASA app .
