Do You Know Something Interesting?
Have you found something in the USA so interesting that you think it should be on our website? Great! We’d love to hear about it! (If it’s a fun place to visit, we’ll likely go see it too.) We—and everyone reading this site—loves to see new information contributed by readers.
Perhaps you’re aware of an interesting place known only to the locals, like a unique restaurant or diner having funny architecture or a far-out menu (Do I hear the sound of gourmet hot dogs frying in bananas and chunky peanut butter?) Or maybe it’s a forgotten abandoned tunnel you’ve explored or an old (or demolished) building that had something to do with a famous person, strange happenstance or weird crime.
Maybe you know about some little-known incident in American history that isn’t taught in school or has been suppressed (Remember the book, Lies My Teacher Told Me?) Or perhaps you, your relative or a friend had an interesting, unknown “cameo” in some great, not-so-great, or just plain amusing or obscure historical event… or for many years you’ve guarded that a special piece of super-trivia that you spring on people at parties.
Perhaps you’ve had a brush with unexplained phenomena. Is there a “ghost tour” of haunted houses in your town? Does Bigfoot raid trashcans in your neighborhood at night? Was there a UFO landing in a park across the street? Possibly you live near a bizarre roadside attraction? Or maybe you know of a weird geological thing, like a field of rocks that ring when you hit them (like those in Bucks County, Pennsylvania)? Or maybe you’ve got a great crop circle photo?
Is there a great new rollercoaster or thrill ride that just opened in your vicinity? Some kind of new 3-D entertainment? Or some other fun place to visit? We want to know about it, as does everybody else who visits InterestingAmerica.com.
Perchance you’ve read about something on our site and you have some new information about it, or you’d like to reminisce about a particular place that we have featured on the site, because you’re in possession of an obscure fact that we’ve missed, or something has changed or new information has come to light since our article on it first appeared. If so, get in touch with us.
Remember, we love to hear about interesting things, whether well-known, little known, or totally unknown to the general public.
