"This is the best collection of attractions yet."
~Michael Feldman, Whad'Ya Know?
If I were going on such a [road] trip now, I would definitely want “Roadside Attractions” on the car seat beside me. Brian and Sarah … have both retained convincingly infectious enthusiasm about the things that make a road trip so appealing.... [And] it’s a great book simply to sit down with and read, remember and dream.

What I call the "wishbook factor" - the Butko's have delivered.

Brian and Sarah Butko’s lavishly illustrated book ... provides a much-welcome update on America’s eccentric tourist traps.... Highly recommended.

This book is like a virtual museum, and reading it is a tour through a nostalgia-inducing collection of wonders.


Roadside Attractions
by Brian & Sarah Butko
Come along for fun and adventure while we explore some of America's most fun roadside attractions. We asked friends and other folks in the roadside field for their favorite attractions, and the result is more than 50 wild and wacky stories, from lost trading posts to walls of gum.


You'll learn about places like Confusion Hill in Piercy, CA, where the Twin Towers Trees and the World's Tallest Free-Standing Redwood Chainsaw Carving are in addition to the mind-bending, logic-defying, gravity-bending attraction itself - AND it's home to the rare, elusive Chipalope!

Other popular favorites you'll find in the book include South of the Border in Dillon, SC; Wall Drug in Wall, SD; Harold Warp's Pioneer Village in Minden, NE; Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX; Slovak Folk Crafts in Grove City, PA; and the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers, FL.

More favorites include Christmas parks, Route 66 eateries, classic motels, miniature golfs, drive-in restaurants, tourist show caves, dinosaur parks, diners, imitation Stonehenges, animal refuges, neon signs, amusement parks, and drive-in theaters.
