Ice cream in Maryland photo"The improved American highway system isolated the American-in-transit. On his speedway he had no contact with the towns which he by-passed. If he stopped for food or gas, he was served no local fare or local fuel, but had one of Howard Johnson's nationally branded ice cream flavors, and so many gallons of Exxon. This vast ocean of superhighways was nearly as free of culture as the sea traversed by the Mayflower Pilgrims." ~ Daniel J. Boorstin
Saturday is always a good day for a drive. Explore your back-roads. You'll be surprised at what your find.
I nostalgia-ed this photo up for you.
