It’s a $10 app to have all access not $6.99...not very clear about that
Brilliant, hilarious and always intriguing! Roadside America will definitely keep up your credentials as an eccentric & thinker.
Used this years ago and looking forward to exploring more post Covid.
Love to use this to find weird little spots to check out. I’ve used it a lot and it’s been fun. this. Exactly what I was hoping it would do. Makes for a fun trip
This app is great!! No matter where we drive, there are cool things to see and places to visit. We have used it in 30 states and counting!! It’s a MUST HAVE for any USA road trip.
We love seeing the unusual and forgotten attractions. Great job.
When we do our road trips away from society, we don’t leave curiosity. This app has added a dimension to our travel. The kids & teens are the navigators, family chooses the destinations, the adults drive. Many sights can be seen from the car. Might get out, quick pic, no contact, next spot. Kumbaya!
If you love driving around and randomly stopping to see some odd monument to something long forgotten or museum full of things you never dreamed you’d care about, this is the app for you! Remember the great molasses flood of Boston? Ever seen 2 thousand arrowheads in one place? My partner and I are crazy for the hilariously written factoids and have gone on little adventures trying to find some of the destinations on this map. I used to try and find these things on my own, but it’s so much easier and fun with this little tool. I bought their book in the 90’s and I’m so excited that technology has managed to find its way to put that big book in my pocket. If you are on your way to Niagara Falls, why not stop at the Jello Museum? Headed to Harrisburg? Stop in at Mr. Ed’s Elephant museum. It’s obviously great for children, but I don’t have any and it’s my favorite thing to do when I have time off! There’s a small fee to unlock all the USA, but it’s totally worth it if you travel. Last weekend I learned all about Lizzie Borden and saw her spooky grave. I never would have done that if it weren’t for these kooky authors and their fabulous app! Thanks for the weird memories!
You can use the Roadside America website for free, but the website’s user interface and usability is so terrible that the app—which is vastly more user friendly—is money well spent and better facilitates spontaneity.
If you like discovering off the beaten path travel oddities, this is the app for you. I’ve used this app for several years now and am always finding bits of nostalgia in our travels. Great app to share with our kids when we travel and explore new places.
