10 Roadside Attractions and Oddities of New York State! Have You Been?
New York is a unique place. I'm not talking about Manhattan. I'm referring to New York State where we have had a U.F.O. sighting or two.

Why is there a giant head on display in Catskill? Here are 10 roadside attractions and oddities that I have found while day tripping around New York State. Have you been to any of these?
