Marilyn JonesI use many tools when researching a travel destination, but it takes a very special guidebook for me to plop down my money and make a purchase.

Over the years, two publishing houses have drawn me back again and again by their titles and expertise: JonGlez and National Geographic.

JonGlez is well known for their beautiful coffee table books, but they also came out with a series of fantastic “secret” guidebooks including Secret Paris; Secret Washington, DC; Secret Montreal, An Unusual Guide; Secret New York, Curios Activities; Secret Edinburgh, An Unusual Guide; and New York, Hidden Bars & Restaurants.

And National Geographic, with its great titles like How to be the World’s Smartest Traveler and Where the Locals Go is always a sure bet as well as their walking and destination guides.
