It can oftentimes seem quite daunting to pick a spot to travel, so The New York Times Explorer Series is here to offer travelers a method to pick their next destination by using the power of travel journalism. Edited by travel writer Barbara Ireland, the book series from The New York Times consists of two guides including Beaches, Islands & Coasts along with Mountains, Deserts & Plains with two further volumes launching later including Urban Adventures and Roads, Rail & Trail.
The New York Times Explorer Series comes as a more distinguished means of travel planning that is oriented towards mature consumers who are looking for information beyond travel blogs and guides. While younger consumers are more oriented towards going with the flow, others that want to plan more extensively will appreciate the new travel guide series.
