Jul 12th 2011 9:46PM Wings Castle in Millbrook, NY is my hometown favorite! It's a castle built with 80% salvaged materials. It's been a work in progress for one couple, who have been building it for over 40 years! wingscastle.com
May 23rd 2011 12:32PM We'll be living vicariously through you this summer! We do have some regional road rips planned for our family travel blog, but nothing as extensive as yours.
We also love the quirky roadside attractions, and the World's Largest Ball of Twine is at the top of my bucket list. I hope you get to see it! I would also recommend the world's largest bowling pin in FL, the largest light bulb in NJ, and the largest rotating globe in ME.

Mar 15th 2011 10:12PM I hope preservation efforts are in the works for these wonderful pieces of Americana. These historic places tell us what was exciting for the traveler in a simpler time. Also, someone created and built these places. This work may represent their finest hour; their 15 minutes of fame. They deserve some homage.
My family loves traveling to see roadside attractions like these for our Go BIG or Go Home Travel Blog!
Aug 7th 2010 10:15PM The Ben & Jerry's factory is such a fun place; love the free samples! My family loves traveling to see quirky roadside attractions like these! We have a blog,“Go BIG or Go Home,” which chronicles what happens when our small-town family visits the “world’s largest”…whatever! http://GoBIGorGoHomeblog.com
