Reviews - What do customers think about Discover Rhode Island: AMC Guide to the Best Hiking, Biking, and Paddling (AMC Discover Series)?
Maximizing a small state Jul 20, 2004
Rhode Island, accessible to all New England, truly offers quite a bit of exploration. Having done a fair bit of paddling in Northern California, I had yet to find an equivalent on the East coast; Matheson's guide helped fill that gap. As an avid sailor it is hard to pull myself away from the Newport action, but some days I want to appreciate the shores that are so often ignored. Lot's of history as well as beauty in this tiny state, and Discover Rhode Island truly delivers on its title.
An excellent guide, don't leave home without it Jun 7, 2004
I thought that I knew Rhode Island fairly well after going to school there for four years. However, this book introduced me to so many beautiful places that it seems only locals know about. The maps are easy to follow if you want to get away from the Newport crowds and relax in serene surroundings.
