Road-trip: what can't we miss seeing where you live?

For YEARS, my friend and I have joked about planning a full-on cross-country road trip. We'd have a hired RV, bobble heads, nodding dogs, and hula girls on the dashboard, and we'd visit loads of tourist sites across America — you know, the worlds largest pencil museum, the biggest ball of twine, pet cemeteries, shoe trees.

We need must-visit places — we hope they give us the fortitude to plan this trip. No more joking! I'd like the Homies to give us touristing recommendations in their area. What should I come see in your city or state? -Mich

My advice is this: If you visit Nebraska, don't allow yourself to drive on I-80. That flat, ugly stretch of Interstate gives NE a bad name.

If you have a smartphone, you might also buy the app Roadside America for $2.99. It alerts you to nearby giant balls of twine and gives you information, links, and directions. It was the first app I bought (aww, I'm experiencing nostalgia!)

What have you got to offer, guys? Or rather, what has your state got to offer?
