Overview - The ultimate coast-to-coast guide for armchair travelers who never leave their armchair because they're watching their favorite television shows.

For more than 75 years, television shows have used their fictional or real settings as major characters. When you think of shows like Seinfeld, E.R., The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Golden Girls you can't not think of New York City, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Miami (to say nothing of shows like Chicago Hope, WKRP in Cincinnati, Hot in Cleveland, L.A. Law, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The King of Queens, LA to Vegas, Sex and the City, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Middle, or even Gilligan's Island.
From comedies to dramedies to dramas, every state in the union (and Washington, D.C.) can claim a show (or two or dozens) as their own. TV USA is the first ever fully illustrated atlas of the in-world restaurants, businesses, and notable locations featured in everyone's favorite television shows.
In TV USA, readers will embark on a fully illustrated pop culture road trip from sea to televised sea (check local listings for times). Having a medical emergency in Seattle? Rush over to Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital. Owned and operated by its staff of top-notch doctors, this Level-1 Trauma Center is nationally recognized as a top healthcare provider. (Gray's Anatomy); Looking for a cozy inn in Vermont? You can't go wrong with Dick and Joanna Louden's Stratford Inn. (Newhart); Visiting New York? You must stop by Rockefeller Plaza to catch a free taping of TGS with Tracy Jordan. There's never a line, so seats are always available (30 Rock).
TV USA is the perfect guided tour for the whole family, without the trauma of having your dad threaten to turn the car around.
