I just returned from a road trip that took me from New York City down to Charleston, SC. Rather than hightail it down to the Lowcountry for the 28th Annual Oyster Festival, I decided to meander down with stops along the way to take in the sights. In a couple of weeks, you’ll be able to see my adventures down south in new Cruze-arati episodes. However, I also stopped at some hysterically bizarre roadside attractions that I just couldn’t resist and I’d love to share those experiences with you. I just need you to tell me what you want to see.
The map above shows you where I stopped to see some wacky, silly and unexpected pieces of Americana during my trip. I saw a 6,000 square foot miniature village, giant Amish statues, a Styrofoam replica of Stonehenge, the world’s smallest police station and South of the Border, which is home to Pedroland and the Reptile Lagoon where I fed some alligators. Each one of these roadside attractions kinda/sorta blew my mind. Each had a story to tell (and often left me with more questions than answers).
I want to share these stories (and questions) with you. Please let me know which of these attractions have piqued your interest the most and I’ll be sure to cover it in depth. Simply vote in the poll below and/or leave me a comment.
