Nice portable, easy to hold size paperback. It Was what it advertised to be; listed 100 art towns; varying amounts in most every state (maybe every state). It does give a nice background of the towns and the names of the art galleries and venues. Short and to the point which is nice. The only thing that threw me was that I had expected a list of towns with numerous art galleries. Many of the towns were more focused on theater or dance/ballet or even children's art venues; which I know is art but maybe a different title that tells you that.

When I first bought John Villani's book, my wife said, "How cool is this...a vacation planner for the art-minded!"

That's exactly what it is: a summary of what there is to see and do in 100 wonderful arts communities across the US and Canada. The author has gathered information about art galleries, art festivals, restaurants, musical events, and live theater to produce a unique compendium, distilling the essence of each town's character. To guide the reader to the best, Villani ranks the top 10 towns of under 30,000 population, along with the top 10 larger towns of 30,000 to 100,000.

Any summary of so many towns must of course must leave some things out. Local partisans may may miss seeing a favorite restaurant listed in this book, or a theater, or a well-known gallery. Others, with equal home-town loyalty, may dispute Villani's rankings.

But this is all beside the point: this book is a splendid guide for visitors, providing enough information to plan a trip or sample a new art venue. Travelers will discover their own delights and favorite places in each of these fine art towns. Villani's book will reward the adventurous with a taste of rural America unlike any other.

When I travel, I usually need to spend a lot of time reading scores of newspapers, Chamber of Commerce information, and flyers, in order to figure out the highlights and personality of each area. Thanks to "The 100 Best Art Towns in America", the author has distilled this information into an easy-to-read, informative format, which cuts through the advertising and special interest promotional activities, allowing me to experience a more sophisticated vacation.

The book also saves me from wasting time in overly-commercial towns that are usually promoted in most other travel guides. I am a resident of one such overly-commercial town, Sedona, AZ, and am delighted to see that the author has NOT included that town, and therefore, not sold-out to its national efforts to be included in all lists of "Art Towns". This book will steer you clear of timeshare and tommyhawk towns!

Congratulations to John Villani for his helpful guidebook.

Great finds for short vacations across the US. Using this book we have chosen trips to LaJolla California & stayed at a great small hotel there - The Grande Colonial - the chef is outstanding & prices manageable. Then Santa Fe and then Sarasota FL and the nearby beaches also were great. Terrific little getaways for lovers of accessible art & crafts as well as well chosen accommodation choices & restaurants.

Pretty good book but having been to some of these places before, I must say there is some subjectivity here that is stretched a bit.

when we were deciding where to retire we used this book as a guide and visited several of the places and actually retired in one of them.
