Get a Taste for These Great American Food-Themed Attractions

  • Get a Taste for These Great American Food-Themed Attractions

    Stop by these culinary wonders.

    Roadside attractions can be corny, but some of them are just intriguing enough to make you hungry for discovering a little more about them (or at least about the destination they’re in). Some tall-standing items relate to real-life agricultural ties, others reflect public or personal achievements or personal marketing claims, and others result from invention. Then, there are those that make for a great publicity photo (or these days, a nice Instagram pic). And if your mouth starts watering, you’ll be glad to find out that there might just be actual food onsite, as many of these food-based attractions are a part of a shop or restaurant.
