Are you a wanderer? Then “1,000 Places to See in the United States & Canada Before You Die” (Workman, $24.95) belongs in your knapsack.

This updated bestseller by Patricia Schultz is a great collection of offbeat destinations, from pristine beaches to classic ballparks; awe-inspiring glaciers to world-class museums.

You could probably check a few of the North Carolina destinations off your bucket list right off the bat – Duke University, Raleigh’s Poole’s Diner and Crook’s Corner in Chapel Hill are just a few of the must-sees listed for The Tar Heel State.

There are plenty of interesting places farther afield, as well.
