Top 10 Travel Destinations
Oh sure, the National Parks are good too. But these are the real reasons why I go out West
|10. The Liberace Museum, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Actually, I probably shouldn't poke fun at this - some people take their Liberace seriously.
(Note: The Liberace Museum closed in October, 2010.)
|9. The World's Largest McDonalds, Vinita, Oklahoma.
Or any McDonalds for that matter. Now that's vacation food!
|8. The Virgin Club II, Hurricane, Utah.
No windows - I wonder why? Is that Jim's car in the lot?? I just want to know why I didn't get carded - how do they know? And what happened to the Virgin Club I?
|7. Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo, Texas.
Gets more visitors than Euro-Disney.
|6. Rock City, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee.
I didn't actually go to Rock City, but just going down South to see the See Rock City signs is a vacation in itself.
|5. South of the Border,
I didn't have a picture because I haven't been there since I was a kid, but it changed my life. I still think I have some firecrackers from there (...do those things go unstable?).
|4. Hole N the Rock, Utah.
Makes me proud to live in America.
|3. Wall Drug, Wall, South Dakota.
Free Ice Water! And don't forget to stop in at Badlands National Park for a few minutes while you're there.
|2. Corn Palace, Mitchell, South Dakota.
I laughed, I cried, it really moved me. Just follow the signs (...and signs, and signs).
|1. Carhenge, Alliance, Nebraska.
Awesome. Cars mimicking Stonehenge. Two weeks here just isn't enough time to see everything.
|Grand Prize (...OK, actually this makes 11)
Doesn't matter where, but after a full day of driving, it's just great to stop. And I'm sure you really appreciate this if your vacations involve a station wagon full of kids yelling "are we there yet"?
I hope to keep traveling the USA, so maybe I'll have a top 20 someday (...I mean, I haven't seen the worlds largest frying pan yet).
