Roadside America: Your Online Guide to Off-Beat Tourist Attractions,
Does all this talk of politics leave your head spinning? Give your intellect a rest while enjoying the odd and inane offerings at Roadside America. From the World's Largest Twine Ball (here in our home state of Minnesota) to Idaho's Shoshone Ice Caves to the Grave of Buster Brown in Hornersville, Missouri, this hilarious website has over 700 pages of roadside fun. Originally published as a book in 1986, Roadside America has grown into a veritable multi-media empire. Authors Doug Kirby, Ken Smith, and Mike Wilkins published a sequel, the New Roadside America, in 1992, and later branched out into a series of web-based 'hypertours' (webcast roadtrips) before launching this authoritative online guide to the best of American kitsch culture. Don't plan another vacation without consulting this invaluable resource.
