Covering festivals, foliage displays, harvest celebrations, summer and winter sports and activities, local markets, animal migrations, and more, this lavish, beautifully photographed book is both inspiring and useful.
In-depth site descriptions, illuminating sidebars, and tons of insider tips will inspire you to plan your next getaway during a destination's showcase period-whether it's Christmas in New York, complete with ice-skating at Rockefeller Center and neighborhood holiday markets; springtime in Japan, when cherry blossoms create clouds of pink around picture-perfect medieval castles; summer's midnight sun in St.
Petersburg, Russia, during the city's annual White Night festivities; or autumn in Maine, when the highlight of Acadia National Park's Night Sky Festival takes you atop Cadillac Mountain to gaze up at a universe of sparkling stars.
