In late 2007 I started Silly America. I had always loved roadside attractions and as I started traveling more, and taking road trips, and going to competitive eating events, I started to amass a huge collection of photos. I wanted to share my passions with the world and thought creating a website devoted to all of these weird American places would be an amazing endeavor. My intention for the website was never for it to be a blog. I had intended more for it to be a massive photo gallery of all the attractions you could fathom (or at least the ones I have traveled to thus far). But, as always, life seemed to get in the way, and I had never actually got around to designing the site. So for two years it was a lonely little blog that I neglected for a long while.
But now, I am proud to announce the new Silly America website!
We now offer the best of both worlds: this here blog AND a massive gallery of photos! They are organized by state, but you can also search or use the tags to find more! You can even leave comments directly for each photo! It’s not totally done yet, and I still have to add another thousand or so photos and caption all four thousand of them, but I am so happy with it!
There is also a section devoted to videos and an about section to learn more about the site, me, our Silly American mascot Flopsy, and more!
Thank you so much to everyone who has helped along the way. I hope everyone enjoys the new website as much as I enjoy seeking out these crazy sites! As always, there is so much more to come! I can’t wait to hit the road again!
