Traveling is so much more fun when you are spontaneous, right? I’m always game for an Instagram photo op, but when you’re someplace new it can be difficult to find things to do or see that are off the beaten path.
Enter Atlas Obscura, your new favorite website for finding the cool and weird stuff either near your home or on your next vacation. Enter any location into the map to discover new places to visit all over the world.
Atlas Obscura is a collaborative effort — people add their favorite weird stuff to the map for others to discover. I really enjoyed thumbing through some of the suggested sites in North Carolina. Some I’ve seen, and some I will have to make a point to visit. (I’m dying to visit Castle Mont Rouge in Rougemont. I might have to make that happen!) There’s something new to discover every day, and I love that Atlas Obscura helps people find them. Happy travels this summer! // susannah
