It’s something straight out of a sci-fi movie. It’s controversial, unexplainable, intriguing, and for all intents and purposes, authentic. This is the UFO Sheriff’s Car, a rust-colored 1977 Ford LTD, found in a small museum in the sleepy little town of Warren, MN, pop. 1,563.
The Cabin of the Root Beer Lady, also known as the Dorothy Molter Museum, tells an interesting tale of the last remaining resident of what is now known as the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. Dorothy Molter lived on the Isle of Pines on Knife Lake near the Minnesota/Ontario border for more than 56 years, roughly 15 miles from the nearest paved road.
A recent trip to the Dirty South gave me the chance to check out some great new roadside attractions Georgia’s capital city, Atlanta. Probably one of the most well-known and visited attractions here is the World of Coca-Cola. Found downtown next to Centennial Olympic Park and the Georgia Aquarium, the Coke Museum is an interesting and fun place to learn about the most popular and most-recognized brand in the world.
