One Last Summer Road Trip

A Guideposts staffer shares his favorite quirky tourist attractions in the hope that they'll inspire you to hit the highway for one last summer road trip.

Nothing says summer like a road trip, and with the days of warm weather slowly winding down, you just might have it in mind to take to the highway one more time.

In the summer of 1992, I took the road trip of a lifetime: Four months, 23,000 miles, 48 states, and a seemingly infinite number of quirky, vintage roadside attractions. I don't think a day goes by, even all these years later, that I don't think of that trip, so I decided to share some of my favorite attractions with our readers. So roll down those windows, find your favorite oldies station on the car radio, buckle your seat belt and let's hit the road.—Brett Leveridge
