Weekends on the road

The best of the American Midwest & Great Lakes

The New York Times has been offering up dream weekends with practical itineraries in its popular weekly “36 Hours” column since 2002. The many expert contributors have brought careful research, insider’s knowledge, and a sense of fun to hundreds of cities and destinations, always with an eye to getting the most out of a short trip. Based on the best-selling book 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada, the Times and TASCHEN now bring together the best of the Midwest & Great Lakes. From the great urban centers on everyone’s travel list to surprising locales with undiscovered character and charm, the paths lead from Chicago’s waterfront to Toronto’s music scene, to the awe-inspiring Black Hills and Niagara Falls, and well beyond.
