BEST RESOURCE FOR MAKING AN INTERSTATE TRIP FUN
Long boring interstate rides turn fun, exciting and educational when you know something about the places you drive through.
SIDE TRIP on I-80 – Exit 211 in Wyoming.
Bad boy Big Nose George was strung up from a telegraph pole in Rawlins, WY in 1881. The attending doctor (who later became Governor) ordered a pair of shoes made from George's hide. See this and much more in Rawlins' Carbon County Museum. It's like rummaging around grandma's attic. Admission is free and it's less than 2 miles from I-80.
SPOT THIS on I-76 – Milepost 142 in Pennsylvania
More than a bed-and-breakfast with a beer-blog reputation, Jean Bonnet Tavern has welcomed Indians and frontiersmen since the 1760's along the only road from eastern PA to the forks of the Ohio River. Determine for yourself if the tavern is haunted, as many believe.
TRIVIA on I-95: Exit 7 in New Jersey
Napoleon Bonaparte's brother fled France and moved to Bordentown in 1815. For 23 years he entertained lavishly and socialized with townspeople and America's important dignitaries.
