Little Known Attractions

(worth visiting)


The intent of this guide is to offer places to visit that are for the most part Free of entrance fees. There are just a couple on the list that do have a fee associated with them, but they are there because people have asked about them in particular. Many of these are out in the middle of Nowhere, where you can find that relaxing solitude to help ease the frustrations of daily living. We have enjoyed visiting all of these places and think you will enjoy them as well.

If you notice, the descriptions that follow each of the links are either Red or Green. This is used to designate the type of vehicle that is recommended for visiting the location described.

Red is for High-clearance, 4 wheel drive or both (see description).

Green is used to denote the fact that any vehicle can be used to visit the location.
