The 16th edition of Along Interstate 75'' by Dave Hunter is hot off the press.
The award-winning book is a digest for those driving I-75, Ontario snowbird's most popular freeway to Florida.
Getting there is half the fun and Hunter's book provides dozens of insider and money-saving tips, lodging and restaurant recommendations, mile-by-mile entertainment and coloured road strip maps for those driving from Ontario to the Florida border.
A few of the fascinating story angles:
Check into this I-75 hotel chain and there's no need to go out again. As well as many free room extras, it also has free hot, chef-prepared evening snacks and free soft drinks for guests.
A secret restaurant in Georgia so good the locals want to keep it from the northern Yankees. No advertising or street signage but Hunter found it.
What are those colourful barn signs along the way? No, the barns are not hexed.
Enjoy the warm aroma of freshly baked bread at breakfast and homemade country soups at lunch. Don't miss this restaurant in Troy, Ohio.
Free downloadable coloured strip maps of Highway 401, 402 and 403 are available.
The new edition has GPS coordinates and addresses for all recommended I-75 restaurants and attractions to help you drive right to the parking lots.
The books are available at CAA travel offices and online at www.I75online.com.
