Weird Stuff is Fun

I haven’t lived in Kentucky very long, so when a copy of the latest in the series of “Weird” states books was offered to me, I was more than happy to accept. Weird Kentucky is a travel guide to “local legends and best kept secrets” by Jeffrey Scott Holland.

It’s a beautiful hard bound book loaded with huge clear photos of all sorts of good weird stuff that we love. It’s divided into topical sections rather than by city, so it is a bit different from most travel type books in that sense.

Naturally, being a Road Trip Mom, my favorite section was the road-side oddities. I have already had the pleasure of visiting one of them recently — Dinosaur World, which was weirdly wonderful to say the least. (I’ll have photos from our adventure there posted on my website soon). After reading this book, there is lots more that I am ready to go see for myself, and when the Bible putt-putt golf course opens for the summer here in my own town, I will be ready and waiting to putt through Noah’s Ark and right into the New Testament. My only disappointment is that there are a few items described in the book that no longer exist (and so we can’t go visit them), and not everything is open to the public either. But it’s good to know that these oddities exist (or existed as the case may be).

My kids love this book too, and it will be going in the car with us on our next few trips through Kentucky until we are familiar with everything weird we can find in our newly adopted state. I definitely recommend Weird Kentucky, and would recommend the “weird” book for your own state. There may be strange and wonderful things awaiting you, but you don’t even know it yet.
