There’s nothing like a good landmark to turn a dull day on the highway into a grand adventure.
From wacky roadside attractions such as Foamhenge in Lexington, Virginia, to somber sites like Antietam, Maryland where the the bloodiest civil war battle took place, there are no shortage of fascinating landmarks around the U.S.
If you’re like me, you love seeking out landmarks while on a road trip. And what better way to see our beautiful country than with a literary landmark road trip highlighting the many museums, historic homes, and wild places of nature that commemorate some of our greatest literary masters.
