USA - Travel Guide Books

We hope to get to USA in Dec'06-Jan'07 for family holiday. Intend to spend 1 week skiing around Denver,1-2 week in and around NYC and 1-2 weeks yet to be decided. Can anyone recommend a good travel guide book on USA in general and specific areas.

Fodors, Lonely Planet, Moon Handbooks. Those are the three I like best.

Thanks for the suggestions. I note that the most recent edition of Fodors USA was published in January 2003. Is it getting out of date by now?

I also like books listed above, and especially like Fodors. But I find it somewhat redundant to info available on this website (not in "talk", but other sections).

Therefore, I buy a different book (sorry Fodors) and print out relevant info from this site to take with me.

If I want to buy a book to read, it is Fodors, though.

It really depends on your particular interests-certain guidebooks appeal to different people. I love the Moon Guides, because they have suggestions for all budget ranges and they generally have a lot of details about outdoor activities. I have their Colorado guide and like it quite a bit (the Rough Guide is pretty good for Colorado/Rocky Mountain States, too). You should really spend some time at a bookstore with a good selection figuring out which guide is right for you.

I should add, for NYC, I loved the "N.F.T: Not For Tourists" guide. Really great suggestions for shops, restaurants, sights, parks, etc.
