The $0 Deal

February 01, 2009|Catharine Hamm

That's not a typo. This deal won't cost you a penny, disproving the maxim that you can't get something for nothing.

The deal: If you're a California resident, you know you're living in a place of amazing diversity, geographically and sociologically. The "2009 California Official State Visitor's Guide and Travel Planner" aims to help you get the most bang for no bucks. The 224-page publication is available as a magazine or in a greener online version. The Golden State is divided into 12 regions, and within each region are the usual as well as off-beat suggestions of what to see and do. There's a "trip idea" in the L.A. section that suggests a drive that takes in the Geffen Playhouse, Noodle Planet restaurant, Rodeo Drive, White Orchid Living furniture showroom, Beso restaurant, the zoo, Hammer (as in Armand) Museum and the Whittier Narrows Nature Center. The guide is also packed with phone numbers and events. If your California vacation needs a kick-start, this could provide it.
