This Monday, and the first week of August, begins with an apology. It’s been nearly a week since our last installment of Gadlinks, and it’s all my fault. I celebrated my 31st birthday on Wednesday, and have since been in a car, traveling between Seattle and San Francisco. Here at Gadling we are celebrating roadside attractions and undiscovered America, so it seems only appropriate to provide some Gadlinks in keeping with the theme.
- Check out these wacky roadside statues! You have to admit how tacky American art can be.
- Budget Travel online gives us 59 jaw-dropping roadside attractions that will keep us busy for a lifetime, if not more.
- This recent news from Roadside America’s website makes me want to flee the U.S. before it gets even stranger than it already is.
- On the other hand… this slideshow of America’s undiscovered national parks remind me of how beautiful this country is and how much more there is yet to see.
And finally, my friend in Ohio sent me a video of Touchdown Jesus, and I couldn’t help but look up videos on pilgrimages to this famed roadside attraction. This one inspired me the most, though — a music video with fire dancers by the extra-large Jesus statue. The music is quite catchy, if I do say so myself.
Tomorrow, Jeremy will bring us the usual Gadlinks. ‘Til then, have a great evening!
