This book could have been better, but of course for that it would have to be longer. What we have here is a whole bunch of various roadside attractions crammed into a small book. So for that the writing is very cramped and descriptions of the various attractions is sparse. However the photos and sidebars are very interesting. So for a glimpse at these attractions this book fits. For a more descriptive look at roadside attractions look elsewhere.

Many attractions and oddities listed in this book, from Route 66, Lincoln Highway, and many other highways and byways. Many places I had never heard of, so was able to add them to my itinerary for several upcoming roadtrips.

Very useful for the roadtripper!

After a long break from Goodreads I am back. My newest books are a trilogy about Kennywood Park near Pittsburgh. Book #2 just came out, "Luna: Pittsburgh's Original Lost Kennywood." I've also written about diners, the Lincoln Highway, Isaly's Dairy, and other fun stuff.
