At heart I'm a true Lonely Planet kind of girl but in the past few months I admit that I have strayed: I've discovered Luxe guides. What I love most of all is their small light weight pocket sized format. Really who needs all that guide book information when you're just visiting a city for a day or a weekend. Luxe's condensed opinionated selection of places to stay, eat, shop & see is great and funny too. Love that they only offer the best of each place, huge time saver when you only have 2 days to visit a city. For those travelers who wish to go completely paperless you can download most of the Luxe city guides on your iphone. Happy traveling.
