Item description for Superlatives USA: The Largest, Smallest, Longest, Shortest, and Wackiest Sites in America by Melissa L. Jones...
The nation's biggest tricycle, its sunniest city, its fastest glacier, its most secure prison---the list of American superlatives is long and nowhere can travelers buy a guide to find them all. Superlatives USA provides a wealth of information and humorous stories about the sites and the curators who watch over them for more than 100 of America's superlatives like: the biggest T-Rex skeleton in Chicago and the largest door in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The book is organized by state, making it easy to pinpoint locations on a drive, like seeing the country's smallest church on your way to Disneyland. Also included are photos, directions to the sites, and information on fees and hours.

Fun, Unique, and Weird! Mar 4, 2005
"Superlatives USA" is one of the most fun travel guides I have ever used. The book covers the entire country and shows readers where all of the biggest, smallest, largest, windiest, oldest, etc. places in America are. If you're trying to have a vacation that is non-stereotypical, "Superlatives USA" is the book for you. My husband and I used it on our honeymoon road trip, and we both know we will use it for future family vacations. The book took us back to our college road trip days.
