What’s Your Favorite Roadside Attraction?

Utah’s Coffee Kiva. It’s tucked in a crazy oxbow of a canyon near Escalante, and one fantastic place to sip java and enjoy the view.

The perplexing Colorado Gator Park on the route to the Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Lately, with a little one in the car, we’ve been loving city parks and swimming pools (with splash pads) to break up the drive.


Chris Kassar

Galleta Meadows in California—it’s a weird menagerie of huge statues of prehistoric critters that once roamed here.


Timmy O’neill

The Stoner Stampede whitewater play section of the Dolores River with its waves and holes, freezing water and easy asphalt access. I just paddled it when I was at Telluride Mountain Film.


Melanie Wong

The Giant Dipper Roller Coaster on Mission Beach in San Diego—a fresh IPA and endless rides next to the ocean, classic.

Hudson Bio 2

Adam Chase

Vermont farm stands and farmer’s markets during the fall apple (and foliage) season.
