You’re probably already texting your friends to see who wants to join you on this weekend’s adventure, but before you go, add another planning tool to the mix to make sure your journey takes you to the fringe:
Close Encounters of the Weird Kind — A road trip just isn’t complete without a brush with America’s oddball underbelly. Fortunately, there’s the Roadside America Map Tool. You can find delightful derangements by city and by state, and their site has a bevy of featured destinations worth a quick stop and a Facebook photo. Your friends will die laughing when you pull off the highway and explain you’re all stopping at The World’s Largest Armadillo (Granbury, Texas) or the Giant Apple Core in Dunbar, Pennsylvania. Be sure to download their iPhone app before you depart.
