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.
Downloaded to a current iPhone XR, I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app, and every time I bring it up it says there is no network and cannot connect
This app has sent me on a multitude of adventures to track down odd and amazing attractions. Cant recommend enough.
This app is SO much fun! No matter where I am in the country I’m always accessing the app because I love finding weird things and odd places. We’ve had some of the most fun experiences finding places shown in the app. Highly recommended!!!
The way this app is laid out is really uninteresting to use and for being such a simple app it’s actually really annoying to navigate. I want my money back to be honest. There other free sites/apps that are way easier and have more places.
My husband and I have used the website for the last couple of years. We love the ap because it lets us preplan stops along our journey. Our friends are always amazed at the quirky little places we find on our trips. The stops really help break up long drives.
It is the only app I’ve run where I noticed the phone getting immediately hot. Very hot. It needs to be updated for ios13 and the new generation of devices. It’s otherwise a good app for the information. The interface is definitely outdated looking.
So worth the price of admission. Get this app and discover America!!
