- Really big things you can’t miss – AmyS_travel recently posted this over on the Bing Travel Blog:
One of the true joys of traveling in America is the nation’s never-ending fascination with big things. Sure, Europe has old things (like cathedrals, castles and bridges), but America goes for “big” in a big way. Big Ball of Twine? Check. Big Tree? Check. This month we’ve scoured the back roads and byways of rural America to find some eye-popping wonders that put some unique small towns, like Mentone, Ind., and Long Beach, Wash., on the map. See what we found in the new Bing Travel slide show, Really Big Things You Can’t Miss. So next time you find yourself on a road trip, watch for these gems and don’t hesitate to take a detour. You may never get another chance to see The World’s Largest Frying Pan, so enjoy! Think we’ve left out something big? Share it in a comment below.
