Atlas Obscura

Ad:

Billing itself as a “Compendium of the World’s Wonders, Curiosities, and Esoterica”, Atlas Obscura is a modern day online Cabinet of Curiosities.  The site was created for the purpose of “cataloging all of the singular, eccentric, bizarre, fantastical, and strange out-of-the-way places that get left out of traditional travel guidebooks and are ignored by the average tourist.”  Browse by continent and visit places by clicking on pinpoints on a map or be adventurous and click on the “Take me to a random place” link to see where you end up.  You can also contribute to the growing collection by adding your own curiosity.
