#52: Roadside America

Roadside America is a fantastic resource for finding out about the weird and quirky things in an area. Ever since we’ve discovered it, we’ve turned to it first whenever we’re in a new place, and it’s become a trusty sidekick on our road trips.

This is part of our 100 Things in 2017 challenge. Click on the photos for a closer look!

We found this was a really great way to spend time with Will during our many, many visits to Albuquerque and  Santa Fe. We quickly ran out of awesome museums and activities in the area, and Roadside America is essentially a bottomless reserve of tiny let’s-go-and-look-for-this adventures.


All of this happened in the course of a single day of Becky and her sister driving around Wisconsin and exploring.


We took the looooong way home from visiting family in Renton (it took us all day) and scooped up all these pins in the map.


For our May visit to New Mexico, it turned out to be better for us to fly into Phoenix and drive to Albuquerque, so we grabbed up a plethora of Arizona spots. Later in the year, Becky passed through on a road trip with her dad, and picked up a few more.


Over the last several years we’ve picked up a BUNCH, but every now and again we’ll discover something new.


Becky’s road trip with her dad led them to visit her brother in Sacramento, and they spent another entire day driving around the area, finding all the wild and crazy things that people have inexplicably made.


Also from the road trip. It was a big one.
