  • Worth it, even if only enjoyed from my armchair

    I had a little trouble figuring out how access the app at first and can understand why some frustrated users gave it less than a 5-star rating. THEN I read the FAQs and more of the directions and found the app works just as advertised. Gee, imagine that. I am now traveling the entire country from my armchair, delighted with the many quirky sights, roadside parks, museums & oddities. If I never leave home again the reasonable cost was worth it to me (and I have limited resources). From now on, every future trip will start with a review of potential places and sights to see along the way (or even out of the way). Thanks Roadside America.

    If you're the kind of person who likes to stop and look at interesting stuff during long road trips, this is THE app for you. It's well worth the value, and has such a huge library of roadside attractions and other cool things to see along the way.

    I paid for this app and choose Southwest. It showed me nothing but a map. I registered... it redirected me to email. After doing all this I get back to same place. It shows me southwest map lit. That is all. If I choose another area it wants me to pay more. I have not yet saw what I paid for first time. I've messed with this awhile and I do not understand all the places you refer people to learn how to work a simple map. Please give me my money back and I'll just use my map and search from google. A waste of time,
  • Great App

    Traveling local or long distance? The Roadside America app will help you find interesting, weird and/or unique things to see. From a piece of the Berlin Wall to the World’s Largest Rocking Chair, you will find these and a whole lot more with this app.

    This app quits out and doesn’t always work. I’ve had to re-download it a couple times and is stuck in partial download mode for four days.
  • I loooove this app

    Help find interesting things to do when just entering a town and have time to waste. Also to find historical spots that you would never think to search for. Plus weird and cool things too. My kids always calls this my adventure I take them on. Especially now that they are getting their drivers licenses and needs hours behind the wheel. I look for something and not tell them then once we get to the spot they will say, “really mom?” Or “wow, now this is cool!”. We have tons of fun with this app.
  • Not good

    Downloaded the app. Paid to unlock all regions. The app is stuck on the map of the US saying “enjoy your trip” BUT it is stuck on this screen! SO DISAPPOINTED especially after I paid in good faith.
