Roadside America®

For your next family road trip, be sure to download the Roadside America app. This fun travel app (great for kids!) lets users learn about the wackiest tourist attractions our country has to offer, from the “world’s largest (ball of twine, totem pole, etc.)” to a year-round Christmas house, a military museum, oddball gravestone or a myriad of other attractions. Keep track of where you’ve visited, with the Been There! Feature, call ahead to get information, check ratings and reviews and get a sneak peak with photos of your chosen attraction. The initial app purchase lets users unlock a particular region of the United States, with an upgrade purchase to unlock all 9,000-plus attractions in the United States and Canada. Cost: $2.99.
