Chic Urban Honeymoon? Don't Leave Home Without LUXE.

Love knowing all the hot spots when you're traveling but hate schlepping around the bulky "look-tourist-over-here" guidebooks? LUXE City Guides has you covered.

These sleek, savvy and witty little guides fit neatly into your pocket or clutch. Best of all, they condense the best travel tips, chic restaurant recommendations, hippest happenings, unique services and necessary tourist information into a few witty lines and a dozen or so pages.

I took a peek at the New York guide and was pleasantly surprised to find some of my favorite "under the radar" spots and attractions recommended including the Pegu Club (Gin Gin Mule anyone?), Prune Restaurant and The LES Tenement Museum. But don't worry, the big-name museums, restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions are here too.

Miami and Milan are the newest on their list of 30 cities worldwide. And, new for the holidays are two box sets - European Grand Tour Box (including 8 European cities) and the World Grand Tour Box (12 titles around the globe). For you DIYers, you can also select the LUXE Bespoke Box (5, 8 or 12 guide sizes), pick your favorite cities and gift wrap to create your own special collection - an amazing shower or wedding present.

Each title is available at select Borders stores and online for $10. And, don't worry about getting out of date, online updates are available to keep the info current.

great finds! we'll be heading to cozumel where we've vacationed the past 5 years in a row so no need for a guidebook, but if we were to be adventurous these would totally make the list!
have a GREAT week!!

The little guide books sound like perfect traveling companions. I think it is great to travel locally. There are so many interesting places that need visiting right here in the USA. Its also interesting to see what many other places are like rather than always going to the same familar spot.

I love this series of books. They are always on the money. I often check to see what entries they have for Paris and cities I know well. They are great.Carla
