This is a slowly growing list of essential road trip experiences. My goal is to compose a set of 100 must-have moments on the highway. Here are five more, in no particular order.
Design a photo safari around a unique theme. Look for a peculiar style of sign, a specific style of architecture, or an odd sort of plant life.
Take a tour of a corporate museum or factory. I recommend the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota.
Visit South of the Border, the indisputably tackiest motel complex/miniature golf playground/fireworks store/souviner shop [etc.] in the nation.
Drive a stretch of US 50, America's "loneliest highway." Best bet: Nevada.
Spend a day on Miami's South Beach. Wear white airy pants, try some new kind of rum, and spend the day looking at the blue water.
