Embrace your inner tourist at Meramec Caverns

I have an appreciation for author Bill Bryson’s humor and wit. When he claimed something was “so bad, it was worth more than we paid” in his novel In a Sunburned Country, it really made me chuckle. 

The truth is that I am right there with him. There are so many places in America that come with the “tourist trap” label that I actually enjoy. 

Despite the price tag, mandatory gift shop, and souvenir photos snapped against a green screen, I love every second of roadside attractions.

As one travels along I-44 in Missouri, you just cannot escape the billboards promoting this exit or that exit with all their hidden gems.
