Strangest Law In Each US State

US stateIn early 2014 I wrote about 10 Crazy Driving Laws Around the World.

A couple of favorites were: Russia- keep your car clean and Alabama- don’t drive blindfolded!

There are definitely odd laws all around the world that we need to be careful of violating while visiting a new country. For instance, during our recent (and upcoming) visit to the UAE, I need to be extra careful not to curse while texting. Luckily, there isn’t really much for me to worry about since I don’t text while using my phone in foreign counties.

Well what about odd laws at home in the good old USA? Continue reading Strangest Law In Each US State

Top Tourist Attraction In Each State

Tourist attraction

In recent years I’ve been trying to see more of the U.S. It’s impressive to think about just how many amazing sites and places the country has to see.

To date I’ve been to 32 states and just a handful of National Parks. In the future I’d like to complete visiting every state as well as see many of the parks.

Each state seems to have  something interesting or which makes it stand out. Some might have the famous national parks, monuments, stadiums or even a well-known food dish. Continue reading Top Tourist Attraction In Each State

Most Underrated Tourist Attraction in Each State

Tourist Attractions 
The Shit Fountain didn’t make the cut

When visiting a city or state there are certain sights that you’d expect just about every tourist to visit.

For example, I’d expect most visitors to New York to go to Times Square and visit the Statue of Liberty. In an even more obvious pick, I think we’d all agree that all visitors that go to Orlando will check out Disney World. It’s most likely the reason they are in the city…

While each state might have its share of famous and touristy sights what about sights worth seeing which might be considered underrated?

Thrillist took a look at The Most Underrated Tourist Attraction In All 50 States. Continue reading Most Underrated Tourist Attraction in Each State

Last year I wrote about an event called The Naked Sledding World Championship which took place in a small town in Germany.

This definitely sounded like it had the makings of an extremely bizarre event. Some of you might wonder why the event would take place in Germany. But then you might remember that it’s legal to get naked in Germany. They also won the world championship for nudity. 

So why all of the references to nudity and Germany? Continue reading Best Spots In World To Be Naked
