Coming to America? Bring Your Travel Guide

Written by Terry on . Posted in Blog

If you’ve ever traveled internationally, you’ve probably consulted a travel guide for information on local customs, sights to see, places to stay, and places you shouldn’t. Lonely Planet and my rough college Spanish helped me get through Mexico with a minimum of difficulty. Have you ever wondered what those guides say about the United States?

Check out this article by Max Fisher at The Atlantic – exploring that very question.

You may find the results both interesting and amusing. My personal favorite – from The Rough Guide, “Texas is the country’s capital for oil-drilling, BBQ-eating and right-wing politicking, with huge expanses of land and equally domineering attitudes.”

I think they nailed it.
