Great American Destinations

The Great American Destination Book Series spotlights storied locations to experience yourself

The Great American Destination Book Series offers stories of hope, history, romance and self-discovery set at locations you can visit. At the centerpiece of these books, you’ll find grand hotels, impressive mantions and inspiring one-of-a-kind sites that have as much warmth and life as each story’s characters. In fact, the locations play pivotal roles.

And when the time is right, you can walk in the fictional characters’ footsteps and create memories of your own. My Friend Marilyn takes place near San Diego at the famed Hotel del Coronado.
