I took a very short trip to the Sarasota area of Florida last June and consulted my blogger buddy and old-time Florida aficionado Rick at Visual Ephemera for some fun sights in the area and he suggested the Gulf-front strip along the coast of St. Petersburg called Treasure Island for its retro mid-century motels and Florida-of-the-past ambiance. I only had time to walk around for about a half an hour but was able to snap a few pictures of the glorious old signs and brightly colored lodgings. It's a great place...like stepping into an old post card. Shiver me timbers!
This blog is devoted to old fashioned American roadside attractions... the wonderfully big, bizarre, crazy, wacky, quirky, weird, funny, unique and mundane sites you see travelling cross-country by car in the USA, where getting there really is all the fun!
