Find Attractions and Oddities to Visit on Your Next Vacation

Browse offbeat attractions for the best road trips with Roadside America

Backyard roller coasters. A museum of cardboard boats. Smiley face water towers. It’s the stuff road trip memories are made of, especially if your memories are primarily constructed from the weird and goofy.

Roadside America makes road trips into road adventures, with listings of thousands of roadside attractions and oddities across the US and Canada. Available both on their site and iPhone app, it’s easy to find points of interest by location (states) or theme (pet cemetaries!).

For those that never leave home without the soothing voice of a GPS unit, there are also downloads available for TomTom and Garmin.

Many amazing attractions have been added by experts, but the site also accepts submissions, so any local pro-tips about muffler men, dentistry museums or Abraham Lincoln resting places are welcome.

The site may not be the most cutting edge implementation we’ve ever seen, but when it comes to comprehensive listings of roadside oddities, Roadside America can’t be beat. Besides, giant novelty fruit is all about the offline experience, anyway.
