So summer’s almost over, and the most exciting thing you’ve done was hang out at the local pool, catch a movie (or two or three!) in air-conditioned comfort, or beat the heat by staying in.
Don’t worry, there’s still time to fit in one last trip that’ll make for a great “What I did on my summer vacation” story for your friends or coworkers.
We chose two quirky destinations from each of eight regions of the country, with destinations ranging from the spooky to the old-fashioned to the downright odd.
Looking for family-friendly entertainment? We have a live mermaid show, ice cream factory tour and the world's largest maze.
Pop culture junkies, we've got you covered, too. SPAM Museum, anyone?
Get an education at the Camlann Medieval Village in Washington state, or the Very Large Array in New Mexico.
Perhaps best of all, our destinations are very affordable, with almost all attractions $10 or under for adults, and $5 or under for kids. Many of them are the best price of all: free!
