From Lucy, the colossal elephant-shaped building on the Jersey Shore, to the grand donut atop Randy's in Los Angeles, this full-color guide profiles the commercial giants that loom over America's highways. Created to sell products and promote tourism in a big way, they can be found all over the United States. The authors have traveled far and wide to bring readers the world's largest duck in Long Island, an enormous Amish couple in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and towering Paul Bunyans all over the Midwest. There are buildings shaped like hot dogs, ice cream cones, and baskets, as well as the roadside phenomena known as "Muffler Men," giants who originally advertised mufflers but now have been converted to cowboys, Indians, spacemen, and pirates. Big fun!

Winner of the coveted Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Gold Award for Guidebooks 2002 and voted Best Travel Book of 2001 by the North American Travel Journalists Association, the first edition of this book was a runaway success.

This is the definitive guide for those with a taste for the extreme or a desire to add something just a little bit different to their tour of the United States. This guide features: *The biggest, the best, the wackiest, and the weirdest of America's people and places *Almost a thousand festivals, attractions, tours, shopping, restaurants, hotels, and eccentric environments *Region-by-region events, places to visit, and quirky places to sleep and eat *Peculiar pastimes, eccentric inventors, and collectors of curiosities *The nuts and bolts on contacts, transportation, Web sites, and regional maps
