Winner of the coveted Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Gold Award for Guidebooks 2002 and voted Best Travel Book of 2001 by the North American Travel Journalists Association, the first edition of this book was a runaway success. Encouraged and inspired by the response from readers, author Jan Friedman is back with more madcap mayhem including the nude Olympics, topless automobile racing, the treehouse bed-and-breakfast resort, and the California community that has its own fashion police. This is the definitive guide for those with a taste for the extreme or a desire to add something just a little bit different to their tour of the United States.
This guide features:
*The biggest, the best, the wackiest, and the weirdest of America's people and places
*Almost a thousand festivals, attractions, tours, shopping, restaurants, hotels, and eccentric environments
*Region-by-region events, places to visit, and quirky places to sleep and eat
*Peculiar pastimes, eccentric inventors, and collectors of curiosities
*The nuts and bolts on contacts, transportation, Web sites, and regional maps
