Presidents Quest: The Ultimate Presidential Road Trip

Who is that person sitting behind the Oval Office desk? It's never been easy to know. We're told to view our Presidents (or presidential hopefuls) in stark shades of red or blue. They are either good or bad, strong or weak, liberal or conservative, wise or whacked-out, leaders or losers.

Polarizing generalities may work in politics, but democracy requires smartified citizens. In that spirit, RoadsideAmerica.com presents this selection of America's most diverse and dizzying presidential attractions. JFK gave us hope for the future -- but did you know he hedged his bets with his own private bomb shelter? Franklin Pierce was a lousy President; could it be because he once wore a dress?

To really see our Presidents requires a journey far beyond the Washington Beltway, out among the people, riding the roads from Yorba Linda, California, to Casco, Maine. No need to worry about the potholes of infrastructure non-investment -- we'll get you there!
