If you are in the planning stages for your next extended RV road trip, you might consider taking a look at the following travel guides to the unusual, off-the-beaten-path, and fun places along America's highways.
Places are listed conveniently by state and includes costs, hours of operation, if reservations are needed, disability access, if there are "freebies," and driving directions. Because the latest edition was published in 2006, I strongly suggest calling ahead to confirm current information.
The 2009 edition (Reader’s Digest, hardback, 384 pages, $30) includes museums, historic inns, castles, rock formations, dinosaur trails, pontoon boating, parks, lakes, wildlife sanctuaries, and zoos.
