    Default Interesting & cool on I-35

    There are a couple of great things to see in Oklahoma City: 1) The memorial at the site of the federal building explosion; 2) the Cowboy Hall of Fame and old west museum. Both are excellent.

    You might concider the Amana Colonies if you like a different quaint setting. These seven colonies would be reached if you take 218 of of I-35 through Waterloo and continuing on 380 down to I-80. Then near Iowa City you would find these little German communities all within a few miles of each other. You can check it out at http://amanacolonies.com/welcome/index.html.

    Default Of the beaten path

    A couple of fun places not too far off of I-35: The Spam Museum in Austin, MN. Its only about 40 minutes out of your way round trip.

    Also near I-35 is my all-time favorite roadside attraction: The Glore Psyciatric Museum in St. Joe Missouri. It features tons of bizare, interesting, and twisted things from the 150 year history of the state lunatic asylum. Its actually off I-29, but the detour from I-35 isn't too far and I'd guess it would only add 30 minutes or so of driving to your trip.
