Obscure and really interesting

If you’re not off on vacation this week, you might want to poke around here.  Chances are, you’ll have a lot more interesting virtual holiday than those who just went to Florida to lie in the sun.

Last week, we went off for a tour of Disney locations with Google Streetview which was great.  But you can do more interesting that than at Atlas Obscura.

Before you go world hopping, consider poking around the 336 entries from Canada.

Amherstburg even made this list with Boblo Island.

If you’re more of a map picker, you’re in luck.  All of the places from the Atlas are plotted on a Google map.  That makes it interesting to plan your day trips.

And, if you’re just a happy go lucky traveller, you might just be happy transporting to some random place.

No matter how you traverse the site, you’re bound to find something really interesting and will learn a great deal along the way.
