A website that finds road trip stops.
Find the best places to stop on a long road trip.
TLDR: The website is hosted at makemydrivefun.com.
This is a web app that lets you easily find novelty places to stop at on a road trip - places that you wouldn’t normally find in a travel book. I decided to make this when I was planning on moving and wanted to find some fun places to stop along the way of my planned route. I found this map of places to checkout in Canada which I used to get started, and then found some other places from Wikipedia and Google.
How does it work? At the top-level, it will generate a driving route between two cities and then it will attempt to find any of the 12,000 novelty features that are within 20 minutes driving distance of the route. These are then sorted, collated, and displayed on the web page.
