    Default 2 month road trip questions

    So I'm heading out from Indiana. Going to Philly, NY, down the east coast to Florida, over to Texas, Vegas, San Diego, up through California, to Seattle, then back through the middle of the country to Indiana. Money for Gas is a non-issue. Sleep Arrangements are a non-issue. I'm just curious if anyone knows how I can find out where some really sweet roadside attractions are. The worlds biggest ball of twine...the smallest working there some list of these attractions somewhere? thanks for the responses in advance :)

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Sounds like a grand adventure. I know that largest ball of twine (rolled by a single person) is in a small town in Minnesota. But I am in the field right now and can not access my database, but I will be back in the office in a couple of days.

    Default Roadside Americana

    Hi Ben,

    Check out the World's Largest Roadrunner in Ft Stockton, TX, The Green Giant Statue in Blue Earth, MN, the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD, and Wall Drug in Wall, SD. A few more are to be found in this post. Here's a list of some of the World Largest Things and some recommended books on roadside Americana.

    That one is located in Darwin, MN. There is also another one in Cawker City, KS.
