Roadside America


Roadside America is a repository for odd sites throughout the United States. Its mission is to report to you odd and unusual attractions that you might otherwise miss when traveling across America.

Lynchburg has a listing for Concrete World, as a fabulous wonder world of concrete ornaments. But there are other odd sites across our area that I think they are missing.

One that quickly comes to mind is the tree growing through the roof at Moore's Country Store. If you haven't had a Moore's hot dog you don't know what you are missing, with the hot chili it will bring tears to your eyes.

Johnson's farm near Bedford, has a statue of Johnny Appleseed right smack in middle of a field. And if that isn't odd enough for you they have developed an apple called the golden nugget in honor of the Beale treasure. If you don't know about the Beale treasure, be careful not to step in some pot holes in Bedford county, where people are continuing to search.

And if you are a code cracker, they mysterious code to the directions to the Beale treasure is still circulating around the internet.

Have you missed the mysterious rhino that seems to be basking on the side of 460 west toward Roanoke? Then there is that Little Apple store with its unique sign. We just wonder, when some of these off the wall attractions might make the Roadside America hit list.

There is one site that is held in much mystery, it is called little known attractions of Lynchburg. Some are still trying to figure out where that abandoned ICBM silo is.

This is a very interesting site. Thanks for publishing it. I will probably use it on my next vacation to see if there is anything interesting to visit nearby.

I think some of the stories and pictures on the little known attractions of lynchburg site are fake. A bunch of the pictures look really fake. Some of them could be true though, who knows?

Hi Luke, I would never say that what you are reading on little known attractions is true. But it is fun to read.
