  • Nice.

    By Robb & Vicki
    Real nice.
  • Uniquely Valuable for the Classic Road Trip

    By Gasman3055
    This is the reason I own an iPad. All of my other devices are android but this is not available on android. What more needs to be said. Effectively I paid over $400 for this app. I do long road trips. A short trip is 3 weeks. As long as 6.
  • How many times do I have to pay and unlock different regions???

  • Helpful and Remarkable!

    Easy to search for neat places, things to do and oddities off the beaten paths of our country! You just search on a town, city or area and nearby points of interest pop up. You get mileage to it, ratings like “not worth the bother” or “don’t miss this” as well as 1,2,3 4, & 5 signs (5 signs is worth the stop). It is reasonably priced $6.99 to unlock all areas of the country. You won’t be disappointed!
  • Why didn’t I know about this????

    By Caitie S
    Wishing I had known about this years ago. We love to Road Trip and find goofy things. This has been great.
  • Don’t leave without it

    By thelma2222
    This is so much fun for adults and kids alike. Huge fans of finding “local” places & sites that locals don’t know about. ;)
  • Initial impression

    By motobob43
    So my initial impression is disappointment. $3 gets you one area. Seems like a tease. $7 gets you everything. I don’t like apps that do this. So I’ll have to use the apps and update the app review in the future.
  • Love this app but wish it had social features!

    By k li reviews
    I’d love the ability to write logs for roadside stops and add pictures to the logs! Would also love to be able to follow my friends and see their feeds :)
  • A must have while on the road.

    By Thisguyjones
    A must have, if you are into weird quirky things, but don’t have the time to wander, this is the app for you. A great list of roadside attractions and how to find them. I use it constantly. GET IT!
  • Fun on the road or whenever

    By Koozl
    Need a scavenger hunt, looking for something to do at home or while killing time till your flight home, interested in the offbeat? This app is for you. Enjoy.
