Roadside America App Comentários


this app is just wants your money. it’s poorly laid out and you have to pay for each place you want me look at. Wish I would have saved my money

Bait and switch

When you open the App it asks you to pick a region, okay. But to change your mind and unlock more regions t will cost you another $6. But you don’t know that until you’ve confirmed, no disclosure. The old bait and switch, which could be illegal.

Fun app for travelers!

I love this app! I find interesting places to visit during our road trips using this app. I understand that subscription for all access have been eliminated, if this is true then I’m so lucky to have purchased all regions before it stopped. Thank you for making our road trips fun!

Best App Ever

I bought this app - All of it ! I used to use the books they wrote, but this app is a God - Send! Worth every penny!!

When ever out traveling on my Harley, I make it a point to Check my app, roadside America. I would hate to miss something, from cool little places to big attraction. I use the app to get to know America, love it & I live it!!! After covering the US, might hit Europe on the Harley. Joe O'Grady

Only App I Paid For

I travel a lot and live this app. Lists things even the locals haven’t seen. Also it’s really easy to add sites to the database.

So Much Fun! Worth it!

My family and I have had so much fun with it! We use it everywhere we go.

The most fun I’ve had with an app

I’ve used this app on several trips and it’s lead to some kitchy fun adventures throughout the states! I’ve visited a hole made entirely of paper, a surgical science museum and an abandoned tv walk of fame. I’ve recommended this app by word of mouth and now I’m recommending where it counts on iTunes. Worth the price for the endless adventures it inspires.


Didn’t realize you could only select ONE region of states and not all the states for your purchase. Wouldn’t have purchased had I knew this. 🤔 You have to pay for additional 5.99 to get the rest. 🙄. Wish I hadn’t purchased it!


We truly enjoy this app on our family road trips.

Fun and easy to navigate

Who knew there was so much to see on a road trip! It’s been fun stopping off and seeing some interesting things! I see there is nothing flagged near me and I know of a few secrets so I’ll submit them as tips!

Don’t buy

Love the free web version and thought, okay will pay 2.99 for iPhone version; but get one region and can purchase additional regions. It’s also hard to figure out, can I have my $$ back please?

A road trip necessity

I love this app. I took a 3 1/2 week road trip to drive from the East Coast to the west and found amazing things along the way. I used the app on a 2 1/2 week trip from the West Coast to the east later and also enjoyed finding interesting places. I shared it with the fellow I met recently And he got a great deal of pleasure of looking at the towns he knows in finding the interesting and weird places near his familiar sites. Keep up the good work

Love this app

How fun to find the unique and unusual as we travel. Love it

Need more but good

The app is fun and interesting, but need more stops

Get it and love it

Love this! I love that it takes you to the off the wall places, not your standard touristy places. We are on the road a lot and we have seen a lot of things/places that we otherwise would have missed. The app is easy to use and is always the first thing that I consult when we go to a new city/town.

We’ve checked out so many attractions thanks to this app!

Amazingly helpful. So much info with intuitive interface.

Account required for additional regions

First off this is a really cool App. I really want to give it five stars. But sadly I can’t. I am located right between two regions and want to buy access to another region. However instead of a standard in-app purchase, setting up a separate account is required. This makes little sense - I’d like to just buy this as an in-app purchase but for whatever puzzling reason the developers won’t allow this. I understand a sign-up if, say, the region access was free, but with paid content this doesn’t make much sense to me.

Road trip fun

You never know what fun will be at the next highway exit or along the road. This app made a long drive a little longer but much more fun! Giant Transformers, VW bug spiders, who knows what you will find!

My go to app for road trips

How can you not love the tacky American experience. It’s really what defines us- America is just young to have a lot of impressive historical attraction, so we make up for it in muffler men, giant oxen and monuments to the obscure. This app is your guide book to navigate through the clever and silly to find the down right strangest. It’s easy to use and well thought out. Good job.


I paid for this app to get all access. Now all of a sudden I can only get one region??? I was never notified the system had changed. Seems like a sneaky rip-off to me. Buyers beware!!!

Don’t waste your time or money!

Offbeat attraction is right. No museums, history or anything else of much interest here.


I don’t understand how to use the app. The free service on the website is great. Sorry I bought the app. I might try for a refund.

Roadside enthusiast

This app is a lot of fun if you like to meander by car. Sometimes we enjoy happening upon these treasures and sometimes we make destination trips. In either case, the descriptions are hip and fun and make us chuckle. If you like “freaky hoo-ha”, odd monuments, drive-by sculpture parks and sometimes Historical treasures, this app is recommended. Where else can you be directed to eat the worlds first hamburger and then see Jayne Mansfield’s other grave whilst reading up on iconic muffler men and ghost stories.

The essential road trip app

This app will add miles to your odometer and years to your life.

Don't Take a Road Trip Without This App!

If you've ever had that sinking, "I-miss-all-the-cool-stuff" feeling as you were whizzing past the world's largest ball of twine, this app is for you. Easy to use, well researched and fun. Get it and use the heck out of it.

Went on a trip recently and this was handy.

Great for planning road trips or randomly while you're on one 😃

50% more interesting road trips!

I travel often and have no probably see more than 50 places listed in this app. This is a no brainer! How much I would have missed of Americana without it!!

Fun and well-designed!

This is a clever, fun application that is interesting for folks of all ages! Not only is it useful to find out-of-the-way sights on road trips, but it is exceptionally fun to spot attractions and oddities in your home state that you've seen for years. It is well-designed, runs easily, and the image quality on the photos is quite good. Sometimes you run into a good bargain... this is one! Buy it and have fun!

App doesn't work

Hoping there is an update soon. I purchased it but it won't even open.

Fun app

And great support, if you should ever need it!

Not working

I purchased the app then purchased the all access and I can't do anything. Waste of money.

Fun For All!!!

Love seeing what's ahead and being able to plan for it!

Nothing Quite Like It

Has the quantity that I was hoping for. The quality was more then I was expecting. Do wish that the app was a little cheaper though

Better than AAA!

Best scenic distraction locator for any road trip!

Sign up is ridiculously complex.

Done with this pos

What a way to travel

Traveling alone with kids has its challenges! However, when it's time for a pit stop this app led us to fun filled attractions we may have skipped. Love this app!!!

Great App Well Worth To Have It

Don't you just love to have the world on the palm of your hand? Well now you have it (or at least tiny bit parts of the world LOL). This app contains every single interesting thing that you most likely forgotten when you're walking, driving, traveling or even sight seeing in the roads of US. My first reaction was I WISH I HAVE IT SOONER! So well worth it!

Cool Database and Search Tool of Unique and Original Places to Check Out

Great, fun app. Used it quite a bit on our recent road trip vacation.

Loses what you paid for

I previously paid to unlock the whole US, but when I got a new iPhone, this app lost my status. Now they want more money. Forget it.

Very unique app

Works like it says roadside America!! Very handy on Route 66!!

Best road trip app ever!

My dog and I are currently traveling across the country to see the sights. We're on our 5th state and have seen DOZENS of cool and odd things thanks to this app! Buy it now! Worth every penny! Tried a couple others, they were junk compared to this one.

Best Roadtrip App Ever

My wife and I love leaving for trips early for the sole purpose of doing Roadside America stops along the way. I was upset that there wasn't an Android app available and this app is one of the many reasons I switched back to iPhone.


Was really hoping for a route planner function for mapping a route with a beginning point and destination than routing to see weird & wonderful along the way. A major lacking in this App IMO

Love. It.

Your road trips needn't be so boring. If you need to make pit stops, might as well check out giant balls of twine and such when you do it.


Love this app - so much fun when you have an extra hour to check out these unique attractions. Enjoy !

Fun app. Could be AWESOME!!

This is a really fun app- it could be great if they add a few features. One I'd like to see is the ability to put in a start and end destination and find points of interest within X miles of the route.....

Fun App!

So far, I've only purchased the Midwest version, but after a recent trip on which we discovered many fun/interesting new sites thanks to this app, I'm likely to purchase more as I travel! Would like to see a "submit a new location" option added to updates in the future which could add GPS coordinates on the site and be added if approved to make this app even better. Plus a "map view" option to see all locations in the area instead of just one at a time would be a nice feature if included. Even with these few minor flaws, it's great as it is. Recommended!

Adds laughter to any trip!

My husband and I live this app so much that we plan ahead for what to see on trips. Susan was super helpful with a glitch on my husband's phone, responding right away and staying in touch until it was fixed.


A great app if, like me, you enjoy seeing the delightful minutiae of Americana.
