Book Review and Giveaway: 1,000 Places To See Before You Die

Hilarye Family Travel, Product Reviews 25 Comments

I got the incredible opportunity to review a book this week by New York Times best selling author Patricia Schultz. The title of the book is 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. Maybe I’m a nerd, but I spent a good couple of hours pouring into this book and highlighting places to add to my list. Ahh yes my list. Have I told you about this? It’s a bucket list of places I want to go to so this type of book definitely caused some damage to that list. I have been to a few of these places but there are so many that my head started to spin and my bank account started to weep.

I love that this book not only tells you where you should go and why but it also offers recommendations on hotels, restaurants and when the best time to visit these places are. It’s almost a dream come true. Some of the places are more obvious choices like San Francisco and Rome, but it also has a lot of obscure and really detailed suggestions like Virgin Islands National Park and The Black Hills in South Dakota. There seems to be an entry for just about every country and region so if you are going somewhere this a great book to cross reference for must-sees.

The best part of this book review is I get to give away three of these books to my readers! I know you are just as passionate about travel as I am so I’m excited for you! THREE of you!

  1. I need this book! We are backpacking through Europe next month and this could help us out a lot!

  2. This might sound lame but I’ve always wanted to go to New York City! Never been!

  3. My hubby and I are in love with the idea of just visiting Ireland for a whole summer!

  4. My traveling bucket list grows each day. I want to visit Italy…every where. London, and Paris are definite musts. I want to go to Luray Caverns…I know I live in Virginia however, getting to Luray with 3 young kids seems like a feat early on the weekends. I also want to visit pretty much every historically significant place in the US. I have been to the White House, Washington Monument, and Williamsburg area. I have to go to the Capitol still. Not to mention Gettysburg, Philly, Plymouth Rock…this list isn’t helping.

  5. New York, Portland OR, Boston, East Coast during the fall, Glacier National Park (Canada side), Delhi (New Delhi), Paris, London, Rome, Egypt, Israel….I could keep going.

  6. I too have an ever growing bucket list, but I think my top two right now are Alaska and New Zealand!

  7. I have lots of place on my bucket list, but lately I’ve been craving Mikonos, Greece. It looks unreal!

  8. I have been in love of the idea of a traditional visit to Paris since I was a kid. I really want to make that happen.

  9. We are happy to see that the Black Hills is on your must-see list! If you are interested in coming to the area, you should consider visiting Rapid City, also. We are centrally located to the beautiful Black Hills and many National Parks, Memorials and Monuments. We can help you plan your vacation! Check out our website for more information-

  10. I’ve already been but I’d love to go back to Italy but this time stay a couple of months

  11. Where do I start? My husband and I are dying to go to Tuscany. It just sounds so romantic. We almost went on our honeymoon, but at the time it way way too pricey and decided to visit Ireland instead. I would love a chance to read this book because I am hoping it broadens my vision on other places we should go. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  12. There are so many places that I’d love to visit! My brother traveled to so many places before he died last summer and I regret not taking the time to travel to Europe with him. I’d love to see Italy, Austria, Scotland, Greece, New Zealand, and many many more!

  13. Europe – I know that’s a huge area to say but I would love to see so many places there. I’d like to start with London and then go from there.
