Neatest Travel Website Ever!
Regular readers of the PSR blog might know that we at PSR have a deep love of roadside attractions, tourist traps, and other strange places on the Great Plains. And now we've discovered the best website ever for scouting out potential roadtrip destinations.
The Atlas Obscura describes itself as a "compendium of the world's wonders, curiosities, and esoterica." They have a huge database of interesting and strange places all over the globe. If you're looking for places close to home, you can use their interactive map to explore specific regions. The places range from the Shoe Tree of Middlegate, Nevada, to the Mystery Tomb of Trinidad and Tobago, to Madurodam, a tiny city in Holland.
Here's some of our favorite curious places on the Great Plains:
The Kansas Underground Salt Museum
