Ever heard of RoadsideAmerica.com?
When my wife and I took a driving vacation a few years ago, we didn’t want to get bored on the long drive. We decided we’d stop at any ‘oddball’ thing along the way that wouldn’t slow down our trip too much. In other words, no museums… just things that would make a great picture opportunity. We would literally get out of the car, set up a tripod/camera, take a delayed snap picture, run into the scene for the picture, and be back in the car in less than 5 minutes. It turned out to be one of my fondest memories that our friends and family still talk about today. (we kept them updated on our journey along the way).
Here are a few suggestions:
Paul Bunyon, Giant Cow, Giant Milk Bottle
Gold Pyramid House
Mars Cheese Castle
Statue of the Fonz
Lady Bug Building
Old Johnson Park Dinasaur
Statue of Gambrinus, King of Beer!
Woodland Sculpture Garden
Green Bay, WI
Half Way North, 45th Parallel Marker
Smiley Face Water Tower
