Map markers indicate local wonders, small-town novelties, and tons of other stuff you won’t find on any high-end travel site. We’re talking about the real deal: Classic roadside stops, specialty museums, and other cultural treasures await.
We even found a highway that plays “America the Beautiful” by way of rumble strips, but only when you stick to the speed limit precisely!
For details on each attraction, scroll in on the map and click on each pinned location. A description of the attraction will appear on the map, giving insight into what you’ll see if you stop there.
Pro tip: You need to be very specific with your query. We recommend including the state or country’s name along with each city to avoid confusing the program (it happens, but we swear it’s worth it).
Make My Drive Fun may not be perfect for an exploratory road trip, letting the wind take you wherever it will. For those with a concrete destination in mind, however, it’s one of the easiest, fastest ways to find awesome things to do along the way.
If you’re driving somewhere for work, visiting family, or simply on your way to a city you’ve been dying to see, we recommend giving it a shot. Bonus voyage!
