The Largest Ball of Twine in Cawker City, Kansas . . . or is it in Darwin, Minnesota? Roadside attractions are the staples of the American road trip.

About the Author:

National Public Radio (NPR) is an American privately and publicly funded non-profit membership media organization that produces and distributes news and cultural programming.

From AudioFile:

Listeners are tossed into the passenger seat and taken along the great American highways in search of strange, unique, and baffling roadside attractions. This introduction to the classic national pastime of road trips brings listeners to all parts of the United States with oddball attractions--from the comedic elevator conductors at Seattle's Space Needle to towns competing for the biggest ball of twine. The overall sound quality is good, and clear transitions keep listeners abreast of the next destination. However, background noise, inadequate microphone adjustment, and ambient noise sometimes hamper clarity. Whether you're planning a road trip or traveling by armchair, this collection provides some quirky sites to consider. L.E. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
