In the third installment of his unique and unpredictable Ramble travel series, Eric Peterson spotlights California’s most quirky and intriguing attractions, sharing his personal travel experiences along the way. Each regional section features atypical tourist destinations, maps, oddball stats, required reading, viewing, and listening lists, as well as the typical guidebook fare: places to eat, drink, and catch some ZZZs. The travelogue portions offer more vicarious tidbits as Peterson meanders through the state, sharing his openness to new experiences and self-deprecating humor. With such adventures as “A Beer Drinker in Wine Country,” “The Desert, Man,” and “Stress, Dread, and Rock and Roll,” Ramble California calls you to the open road and your next idiosyncratic journey.
Freelance writer, Eric Peterson has contributed to numerous Frommer’s guides covering the American West, and he wrote Frommer’s Montana & Wyoming, Frommer’s Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, Ramble Colorado and Ramble: A Field Guide to the U.S.A. Peterson also writes about travel and other topics for such publications as ColoradoBiz, Delta Sky, and New York’s Daily News.
