Roadside America App Comments & Reviews

Roadside America Positive Reviews

Most fun app on my phone!If you love driving around and randomly stopping to see some odd monument to something long forgotten or museum full of things you never dreamed you’d care about, this is the app for you! Remember the great molasses flood of Boston? Ever seen 2 thousand arrowheads in one place? My partner and I are crazy for the hilariously written factoids and have gone on little adventures trying to find some of the destinations on this map. I used to try and find these things on my own, but it’s so much easier and fun with this little tool. I bought their book in the 90’s and I’m so excited that technology has managed to find its way to put that big book in my pocket. If you are on your way to Niagara Falls, why not stop at the Jello Museum? Headed to Harrisburg? Stop in at Mr. Ed’s Elephant museum. It’s obviously great for children, but I don’t have any and it’s my favorite thing to do when I have time off! There’s a small fee to unlock all the USA, but it’s totally worth it if you travel. Last weekend I learned all about Lizzie Borden and saw her spooky grave. I never would have done that if it weren’t for these kooky authors and their fabulous app! Thanks for the weird memories!.Version: 2.1

Worth it, even if only enjoyed from my armchairI had a little trouble figuring out how access the app at first and can understand why some frustrated users gave it less than a 5-star rating. THEN I read the FAQs and more of the directions and found the app works just as advertised. Gee, imagine that. I am now traveling the entire country from my armchair, delighted with the many quirky sights, roadside parks, museums & oddities. If I never leave home again the reasonable cost was worth it to me (and I have limited resources). From now on, every future trip will start with a review of potential places and sights to see along the way (or even out of the way). Thanks Roadside America..Version: 1.9.5

I loooove this appHelp find interesting things to do when just entering a town and have time to waste. Also to find historical spots that you would never think to search for. Plus weird and cool things too. My kids always calls this my adventure I take them on. Especially now that they are getting their drivers licenses and needs hours behind the wheel. I look for something and not tell them then once we get to the spot they will say, “really mom?” Or “wow, now this is cool!”. We have tons of fun with this app..Version: 1.9.3

FrustratingPurchased the app once I received email to confirm wouldn’t allow access states I had to register. Tried to register again,said account was already active. Had to delete app and start over. Once I finally was able to access app tried to unlock all. Will not allow me to tells me I have to purchase the unlocked version which I have. Still will not allow me to access everything. Waste of money and time..Version: 1.9.3

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!.Version: 2.2.1

A road trip necessityI love this app. I took a 3 1/2 week road trip to drive from the East Coast to the west and found amazing things along the way. I used the app on a 2 1/2 week trip from the West Coast to the east later and also enjoyed finding interesting places. I shared it with the fellow I met recently And he got a great deal of pleasure of looking at the towns he knows in finding the interesting and weird places near his familiar sites. Keep up the good work.Version: 1.9.1

My go to app for road tripsHow can you not love the tacky American experience. It’s really what defines us- America is just young to have a lot of impressive historical attraction, so we make up for it in muffler men, giant oxen and monuments to the obscure. This app is your guide book to navigate through the clever and silly to find the down right strangest. It’s easy to use and well thought out. Good job..Version: 1.9.1

Great app, but no family sharing all accessThis app is very fun. We are looking forward to using it on our next big road-trip. Be aware if you use family sharing, though. While the basic app with one region activated can be family shared, the premium all access mode can only be used with one Apple ID. (And a shout out to their great customer service! Very responsive!).Version: 2.2.2

Get it and love itLove this! I love that it takes you to the off the wall places, not your standard touristy places. We are on the road a lot and we have seen a lot of things/places that we otherwise would have missed. The app is easy to use and is always the first thing that I consult when we go to a new city/town..Version: 1.9.1

Fun app for travelers!I love this app! I find interesting places to visit during our road trips using this app. I understand that subscription for all access have been eliminated, if this is true then I’m so lucky to have purchased all regions before it stopped. Thank you for making our road trips fun!.Version: 1.9.1

The most fun I’ve had with an appI’ve used this app on several trips and it’s lead to some kitchy fun adventures throughout the states! I’ve visited a hole made entirely of paper, a surgical science museum and an abandoned tv walk of fame. I’ve recommended this app by word of mouth and now I’m recommending where it counts on iTunes. Worth the price for the endless adventures it inspires..Version: 1.9.1

Love this apMy husband and I have used the website for the last couple of years. We love the ap because it lets us preplan stops along our journey. Our friends are always amazed at the quirky little places we find on our trips. The stops really help break up long drives..Version: 2.0.0

Amazing!When you consider that this app is constantly being updated, the $6.99 to unlock everything is very reasonable. We enjoy finding unique and quirky things, so this app has been a fabulous resource. Keep up the good work!.Version: 2.1.1

UsefulGreat app to use when on a road trip with “nothing to do” - we like the oddities for sure! Would give 5 stars if all locations listed a physical address and a simple link to google maps for directions. Not all do, they just have directions turn here, turn there, etc... other than that great app for road trips!.Version: 1.9.3

PerfectIf you're the kind of person who likes to stop and look at interesting stuff during long road trips, this is THE app for you. It's well worth the value, and has such a huge library of roadside attractions and other cool things to see along the way..Version: 1.9.4

Nationwide fun!I used the free section for several years, then started traveling around the country. I bought the rest of the national sections. They are as odd, offbeat and fun as the northeast. I don’t get to use RoadsideAmerica as often as I’d like, but I like it as often as I use it..Version: 2.3

A Travelers NecessityIf you like discovering off the beaten path travel oddities, this is the app for you. I’ve used this app for several years now and am always finding bits of nostalgia in our travels. Great app to share with our kids when we travel and explore new places..Version: 2.0.1

A must have while on the road.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!.Version: 2.2.1

All Access Is Worth ItPay the extra money for the all access unlock if you travel the country, or would like to one day. Well worth the money. Lots of cool things to see when you use the app to find them..Version: 1.9.3

Hard to navigateWould be so much better if it gave you directions or distance to a plotted route... constantly looking up locations on a map to see if they are behind us or not. “Directions not available” which means I have to constantly replay my location!!!.Version: 2.1.1

Roadside America is like the Milky WayThis app reminds me of the first time I really saw the Milky Way. I gasped 😳. When I then tried with my binoculars,the black empty spaces filled up with stars! This app gives me sort of the same feeling. This app fills in all the “dark” spaces. This app took a lot of time and work..Version: 1.9.5

Love this app!This app is SO much fun! No matter where I am in the country I’m always accessing the app because I love finding weird things and odd places. We’ve had some of the most fun experiences finding places shown in the app. Highly recommended!!!.Version: 2.0.1

SUCH FUN!My family loves this app and we get a kick out of so many of the fun, quirky, weird, & entertaining places we’ve visited! Any time we travel I am looking for amusing little side trips near our destinations. It’s been worth the small amount the app costs!.Version: 1.9.5

Exciting Find!What an exciting find! We love to travel and always dislike missing cool stuff. I first looked in the area around my home. I’ve lived here all my life and did not know these fascinating things were here! Oh the adventures we will have...!.Version: 1.9.3

Fun on the road or wheneverNeed 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..Version: 2.2.1

Fun and easy to navigateWho knew there was so much to see on a road trip! It’s been fun stopping off and seeing some interesting things! I see there is nothing flagged near me and I know of a few secrets so I’ll submit them as tips!.Version: 1.9.1

Joe O'GradyWhen ever out traveling on my Harley, I make it a point to Check my app, roadside America. I would hate to miss something, from cool little places to big attraction. I use the app to get to know America, love it & I live it!!! After covering the US, might hit Europe on the Harley. Joe O'Grady.Version: 1.9.1

Never miss a giant pistachioWe use this app before and on every trip we take. It never fails to lead us to great photo opps, some are breathtaking and some are just plain stupid silly. We wouldn’t be without it..Version: 1.9.5

Travel EnhancerThe app is easy to use and provides useful information with tips and directions. Travel on road trips is more interesting with Roadside America. The map view is a great help..Version: 1.9.5

Great AppTraveling local or long distance? The Roadside America app will help you find interesting, weird and/or unique things to see. From a piece of the Berlin Wall to the World’s Largest Rocking Chair, you will find these and a whole lot more with this app..Version: 1.9.3

Road trip funYou never know what fun will be at the next highway exit or along the road. This app made a long drive a little longer but much more fun! Giant Transformers, VW bug spiders, who knows what you will find!.Version: 1.9.1

The best Roadside Attraction app on the webThis is by far the best Roadside Attraction app anywhere. It includes 1000s of fun sites, with ratings, directions, photos and even allows input and updates from users. The site team is always updating with new places. Another great function is the ability to use the geo-locator that will bring up fun and quirky attractions near your location. Get the app, get a camera and get ready to see the FUN side of America..Version: 1.9.3

Superior to the websiteYou can use the Roadside America website for free, but the website’s user interface and usability is so terrible that the app—which is vastly more user friendly—is money well spent and better facilitates spontaneity..Version: 2.0.1

Don’t leave without itThis is so much fun for adults and kids alike. Huge fans of finding “local” places & sites that locals don’t know about. ;).Version: 2.2.1

I plan vacationsI use this app to plan vacation road trips. It is a really fun to plan short day trips and multi day trips with the attractions this app offers. Easy to use, informative, a must for every day tripper..Version: 1.9.3

Why didn’t I know about this????Wishing I had known about this years ago. We love to Road Trip and find goofy things. This has been great..Version: 2.2.1

Awesome!!!This app is great!! No matter where we drive, there are cool things to see and places to visit. We have used it in 30 states and counting!! It’s a MUST HAVE for any USA road trip..Version: 2.1.1

Love this app but wish it had social features!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 :).Version: 2.2.1

Makes a tripWe never road trip without this app. Makes travel so much fun. I can turn a 3 hour trip into a 6 hour trip 😂.Version: 1.9.3

My favorite travel appWe have traveled to 49 states and cross-crossed the county a few times. No app has consistently proved more worthwhile tips than this one. It makes our travels much more fun and memorable..Version: 1.9.3

Love this appI love to drive and stop in attractions such fun or bizarre, talk with locals about unique places in their cities. This app turned all my travels longer but I’m making friends wherever I go..Version: 2.0.0

Don't Leave Home Without ItAs a longtime user of the website, I was thrilled to discover the app. Roadside aficionados unite! I've recommended this to many friends. Thanks to the developers!.Version: 1.9.3

We’ve checked out so many attractions thanks to this app!Amazingly helpful. So much info with intuitive interface..Version: 1.9.1

IPhone 11 Pro Got too Hot with This AppIt is the only app I’ve run where I noticed the phone getting immediately hot. Very hot. It needs to be updated for ios13 and the new generation of devices. It’s otherwise a good app for the information. The interface is definitely outdated looking..Version: 2.0.0

I love this app!My wife and I keep it on when traveling. It’s not uncommon for us to detour to see some fantastic or weird posting from the app. We are addicted!.Version: 1.9.3

Love this appWe use it traveling all over the US. Never disappoints. And you can add your comments and photos to keep it relevant. Worth every cent!.Version: 1.9.3

Additional CostBe aware, your initial purchase of the app only gives you a region of the United States. Not the full country. To get the full United States you have to pay additional..Version: 2.3

Great ProgramWe did a trip from Ontario to British Columbia through the United States on the way there and through Canada on the way back. This app provided us the opportunity to see many unique and interesting attractions it made our trip much more memorable. We were also able to submit a number of interesting sites for others to see. This app was totally worth the price. I look forward to using it again on our next trip. M. Ashman.Version: 1.9.3

If you love the journey not just the destination you'll love this app.Love this app! We took a road trip to Casper Wyoming from Canada this summer. We're the kind of people that love the journey not just the destination. This app lead us to all sorts of interesting places we would never have known about. 30-foot neon cowboy? Check. A huge replica of Medusa made out of hay? Check. A life-sized tyrannosaur lit from within? Check. We had so much fun checking out crazy stuff. The reviews from travelers about each site were handy, too. You get a better sense of whether or not you'd like to drive 30 miles out of you way to visit a mile long pit of poisonous water. (BTW, you do want to stop there because it's absolutely beautiful.).Version: 1.9.0

Don't Leave Home Without It"Roadside America," along with their companion app "Roadside Presidents," are the two most indispensable travel apps in my collection. The content is incredible and it can even be used - to a limited degree - offline..Version: 1.9.0

Great for road trips!Just did a road trip from Ottawa, Ontario to Corpus Christi, Texas with two teenagers. This app brought us a lot of laughs and directed us to seeing things we enjoyed and would have missed otherwise..Version: 1.9.0

Awesome siteI just bought this app a few days ago. It is a little more expensive than I was told but around $10.00 still makes it a great app. I have NOT gone anywhere yet but have been able to plan out my entire summer using this map and finding what looks like great places to visit along the way. Sometimes trips can seem long but just stopping for a few minutes (or days) can help make the trip not seem so long... Plus the bonus is, you now how something new to talk about. I will review this again at the end of summer and let you know where we stopped and how great it was..Version: 1.9.0

Roadside AmericaExcellent suggestions for unique sites to see that you probably won't find in most travel guides. Wish it was more up to date but with more people adding tips and photos, Roadside America will only grow and expand..Version: 1.8.4

More fun than games, these places are real!I'm really glad I got this, and the "everything on it" all-region expansion. I'm already finding places nearby I hope to visit, like the Sparks electrical museum in Bellingham, Washington, and others I know of that I'll propose they add, like the water cistern It's a walk through to the weirdest parts of real life..Version: 1.8.4
