Make My Drive Fun Gives You New Places to Explore

A road trip is always made more enjoyable when you get off the beaten path (meaning the endless and monotonous interstate highway) and see the quirkier sites along the way. The online app Make My Drive Fun is a map that doesn't give you specific directions or driving time, but it can make getting there quite a bit more interesting. Just enter the starting and arriving point of a trip you plan to take, and the map will point out a bunch of intriguing but underpublicized places near your route. That's how I learned about Dr. Ted's Musical Marvels in Dale, Indiana, just off I-64, and Old Car City in White, Georgia, just off I-75. Even a short trip may reveal interesting stops you never knew about before! The stops on the map have no links, so you'll have to go to Google search, but most of the attractions have either a website or a review online somewhere. Wherever you are going anyway, you may as well take a break and see something that will make going to great aunt Susie's house worth the drive. -via Nag on the Lake

I typed in the route I took this summer on a road trip. Had no idea I had passed the last active volcano on the Eastern seaboard. Would have stopped to see that if I had known. Pretty cool.

I noticed when I typed in two cities, it gave me a route in Europe. I had to include the states too. Naming the state and city seems to be the best option.
