If you’re in Nashville or Austin or Mobile and you have the urge to see something strange, connoisseur of the offbeat Kelly Kazek has you covered. Cruise the South, from Louisville’s enormous collection of the world’s largest things to Miami’s Burger Museum to Odessa’s Stonehenge replica. If you’re around Hot Springs, Arkansas, you might want to bop into the Alligator Farm and Petting Zoo to see where Babe Ruth’s first five-hundred-foot homer came crashing down. And if you’re looking to make contact with the unusual, why not visit the UFO Welcome Center in Bowman, South Carolina? Wherever you are in the South, there’s something strange or stupendous nearby, and this catalogue of noteworthy curiosities and significant landmarks makes sure you don’t miss a thing.
