Roadside America

With the beginning of school approaching (time flies!), you might be wanting to plan some last minute events with the kids to bid farewell to summer. How about a road trip? Better yet, how about a road trip visiting some of the fun, kitschy roadside attractions that have been around for decades. You might just have one near you!

As a lover of all things retro and kitsch, I was thrilled to find out that a perfect example of vintage roadside America was only a drive away from our house. We promptly planned a trip to the Wigwam Hotel in Cave City, Kentucky this summer and it was one of the funnest experiences we've had as a family.

These are some great resources to get you started if you're looking for a fun, retro road trip as this:

- Roadside America
- Roadtrip USA

I talk more about our family road trip here and here. You can also read here to learn more about other kitschy roadside attractions across America.
