This is the essential travel guide of off-beat attractions. Where is the only Hindu holy site outside India? In West Virginia, of course! You will learn about two balls of twine competing to be the biggest. The Spam museum, the Tupperware museum, Bible bird attractions, a 1960s light up map of Pennsylvania, learn the history behind Wall Drug. Also, there's a listing for a frog in a coffin. Why is this frog so special? He was encased in a cornerstone for 30 years -- and survived! Of course, the book mentions your typical 'mystery spots' as well as "giant" items such as the world's largest ketchup bottle, large peanuts, and more. This is the stuff that was visited in the days before Interstates. This year when planning your vacation, be it far or near, plan on taking your child to one of these places, and their "What I did this summer" essay will be far from ordinary. Or visit one yourself and have something exciting to discuss around the water cooler!
