About Highway Highlights…

About the Site: Welcome to HighwayHighlights.com! I’m Seth and this is my website about roadside oddities and attractions found in my home state of Minnesota, as well as the occasional venture into neighboring states and wherever else I happen to end up.  Updated weekly, posts will include (but are not limited to): stories about roadside oddities, unique features and places, geographical landmarks, architecture, Top 10 Lists, and other Minnesota and/or Midwest-related musings.

107_3962About Me: I have lived in Minnesota my whole life,  other than four years in North Dakota for college. I’ve always enjoyed travel and exploring, and in 2006 I came across a book about Minnesota roadside attractions. Since then I have been a mission to see all of them, and discover many new things along the way.

In the News: 

Highway Highlights was featured in a recent article in the Mankato Times in Mankato, MN.  Read more here.

In July 2014, the Pipestone County Star did a story on Highway Highlights after seeing an article I did that ranked Pipestone, MN among the Coolest Towns in Minnesota.  Check it out here.

In March 2014,  Highway Highlights was featured on CBS Minnesota (WCCO in Minneapolis-St. Paul) on their “Finding Minnesota” segment. Check it out below!


And on May 17, 2014, Explore Minnesota used one of my photos for an “Only in Minnesota” segment about Minnesota’s Paul Bunyan statues during a Twins game on FSN. See the clip below!

  1. Site looks great. It’s very well done and easy to use. I’ll look forward to visiting it often and to continue to live vicariously through you and your travels.

  2. Came across your blog today. I too write travel blogs and have visited some of the awesome places in Minnesota, as well as many other places around the company. I am also a constant contributor to Roadside America. Love the new places!!

  3. Hope you are continuing to enjoy your adventures.

    Just wanted to share my post on my recent trip to the Enchanted Highway in North Dakota. I know you visited there recently as well.

    You can see my post here:

    Also, I would love it if you could subscribe to my blog. I just got done with a business trip to Idaho and I have traveled about 6500 miles during that trip (I drove from Kentucky). I posted blog entries about my trip out there and am now working on my return trip. The Enchanted Highway deserved its own feature entry!!

    Hope you will enjoy the whimsy of that place. I have tons more coming in the next couple of weeks. Was an amazingly fun trip!!

    Cheers!!

  4. Hello, I do a feature segment called Finding Minnesota for WCCO-TV and I’d like to talk with you about your website. If I could have your email address or phone number, I’d like to chat. I’m at mabinkley@wcco.com Thanks! Mike Binkley

  5. Love your work. I started something similar where I was taking pictures of gas station finds, like this huge fish tank with weird fish in one town, then in another I took macro photos of plants in another.

    I saw your piece on wCCO this morning and you showed a clip of the Otter in Fergus Falls. I lived in a foster home run by Mary and John Peterson. My boyfriend at the time, Larry Gross welded the frame for the Otter.. He was so gifted and because I loved the Otter so much he made me a butterfly that he welded. I’ve lost track of him, but think of him often and the Otter. Maybe some day I’ll hear again from him. Bonny

  6. Very informative. It may help with those of us not from the mid-west to have a map of the state with dots on it corresponding to each sight/site. Easier to map out possible visits if we know how far off the beaten path these things are. thx for doing the legwork.
