Guidelines for Tip Submission

We love to get visitor tips. Your keen eyes and descriptive powers lead to new quirky places everyone can enjoy in the RoadsideAmerica.com collection. Our editors select which places are Roadside-caliber and which of your tips and photos to post, as we stay focused on new information about the most offbeat attractions. Tips are not user-editable once submitted to us. Visitor Tips we post should provide new information and reasons other Roadside America fans might want to visit.

Places We Include

When you discover a place in your travels that is odd, outrageous, and all you talk about when you get home, then it might be something RoadsideAmerica.com readers will also find amusing or fascinating. Roadside America attractions are publicly accessible or visible: tourist attractions, classic tourist traps, museums, commercial/civic statues, historical markers for bizarre events, graves and memorials, unexplained phenomena, unusual natural features (rocks, trees, terrain, etc), unusual buildings, misplaced items (a landlocked submarine, a lighthouse in a desert), folk art environments. Yard art is permanent, large, profus,e and weird. Murals are hilarious, bizarre or uniquely awkward.

Places We Skip

Beautiful. Too natural, too much beauty.

Food. Rave about food.... somewhere else.

Zoo.Mainstream zoos, wildlife parks, sanctuaries, humane societies. Endangered!

RoadsideAmerica.com is not a comprehensive guide to all travel destinations, mainstream museums, zoos, county fairs, events, or guided tours. To shape our unique collection of attractions, we also apply these filters of pickiness:

We do not publish attractions that require trespassing on private property.
