Hit the open road for fun and wackiness as the Butkos visit offbeat attractions from coast to coast--dinosaur parks, miniature golf courses, populuxe motels, vintage amusement arcades, classic diners illuminated in neon, and even the world's largest ball of twine. More than fifty fellow authors and artists offer stories about their favorite attractions or recall memorable trips. Visitor information is included to help plan quick visits or an entire road trip.

"Brian and Sarah Butko offer fitting salute to many of the great one-of-a-kind enterprises that indeed are gone, but more important, they take readers on a coast-to-coast trip that highlights wacky and nostalgic places that continue to put surprise and laughter into car travel."

"It's going to be hard getting anywhere with so much worth stopping for. This is the best collection of attractions yet."
