The (Not So) Unattainable Street Journey

Icy snow is overlaying our city. So we spent the vacation weekend simply dreaming of locations we wish to go and making an inventory of recent and outdated favourite sights we wish to see within the new 12 months.

The Unattainable Street Journey – An Unforgettable Journey to Previous and Current Roadside Points of interest in all 50 States” seems to be an excellent help to our journey planning

When the e-book by Eric Dregni first confirmed up at our home, we thought the “not possible” within the title meant the e-book was all about historic roadside sights and quirky locations throughout the US we’d by no means get to see.

However now that we glance nearer, we see that the long-gone spots talked about right here merely provide context for all of the corny, quirky, and distinctive locations which might be nonetheless round.

Just like the Large Duck in Flanders, NY. The World’s Largest Buffalo Monument in Jamestown, North Dakota. The Cardiff Big in Cooperstown, NY, And plenty of locations throughout the nation the place you’ll be able to spot statues of dinosaurs, muffler males, and Paul Bunyans

Right here’s a glance contained in the e-book, which incorporates infographic maps, themed roundups, and a few fantastic pictures taken by the late architectural critic and photographer John Margolies.

We checked to see if a few of our favourite sights in Washington had been included and had been happy to the Zillah’s Teapot Dome Gasoline Station and Seattle’s Hat ‘n’ Boots included. (These pictures aren’t from the e-book).
