Places to see & things to do
Roadsideamerican.com is one of my favorite travel sites. Type in a city or a route and it will tell you all the neat and weird roadside attractions. Nothing to spectacular, but definitely worth looking up if you're traveling a long ways and want to stop and take breaks
Moviegoers probably assumed Chevy Chase was joking in the movie National Lampoon’s: Family Vacation when he nearly took his family to see the nation’s second largest ball of twine. Now, 40 feet in diameter and weighing nine tons, it’s the world’s largest ball of twine and is in Cawker City, Kansas

Goldfield, AZ This gold town thrived in the 1890s, then died and was reborn a number of times between 1910 and 1926. In the 1960s, it was reconstructed as a tourist stop. Goldfield offers perhaps more kitschy fun than historical preservation: you can visit the Superstition Museum, ride a narrow gauge railroad, or see folks in period costumes stir up a reenacted gunfight in the street.

Alabama State Parks,The first thing you notice about Cathedral Caverns is the massive entrance. The huge opening measures 126 feet wide and 25 feet high. And it gets even better. Inside the cavern, you will find Big Rock Canyon, Mystery River and some of the most beautiful formations Mother Nature has ever created. Among them, you will see Stalagmite Mountain, The Frozen Waterfall and Goliath, a huge stalagmite column that reaches the ceiling of the cave some 45 feet above!
