Method 1: Use Roger, World's Only Wooden Search Engine
Roger, our search guide, finds stories, tips and news items on RoadsideAmerica.com.
Method 2: Use Google to search RoadsideAmerica.com
Searches all text on all site pages (not as discriminating as Roger).
Method 3: Maps and States
Find attractions via maps or listed on individual state pages.
Submit Your Own Tip: Help us stay current on US attractions. Send news, leads, and observations from your own travels. We can't guarantee everything in our Tips section is correct, so we rely on you to be as accurate in your reporting as possible. We'll check'em out eventually...
Where Is My Tip?: If you just submitted a tip, it doesn't automatically appear. A human editor will review, verify details, and decide whether it's an appropriate addition to RoadsideAmerica.com. Duplicate tips lacking substantially new information are not posted. Brazen self-promotion by attraction owners (unless it really amuses us) is also less likely to be published.
- Not case-sensitive.
- Roger doesn't do fancy Boolean search strings -- he's made of wood. So no AND, OR and operators (but quotes work). He's not really a search engine, if you want to get technical.
- No results? Try widening the search with less info (ex., "lincoln" rather than "Abraham Lincoln")
- Attraction: Use partial or full name of tourist attraction, monument, theme park (ex., Wall Drug, shoe tree, Holy Land). To narrow results, if you know the exact name or phrase, put it in quotes: "attraction name"
- Town: If you know correct town -- some sightings reported by approximate or nearby town. May get better results by using state and attraction name.
- State: Narrows the search to tips and feature stories in a particular state or Canadian province.
- Description: Searches tip text and may find tips where attraction name was wrong or vague. Can show how many tipsters referred to a place as "awesome."
