Go Here: Abandoned Hospital on North Brother Island in NY

Every time I got sick as a kid, my mother would call me 'Typhoid Mary.' That was before the internet was a thing, and so I always assumed she was having a bout of amnesia. When I was older, though, I learned that Mary was very real, typhoid was very scary, and this abandoned island hospital in the middle of NYC was where they kept people who had it.

Death Cast of "Siamese Twins" Chang and Eng Bunker George Widman, 2009, for the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia

Go Here: Mütter Museum in Philadelphia

I tend to have a pretty short attention span at history museums, unless they are one of two thing: interactive, or disturbing. The Mütter Museum, a museum of medical history, is definitely the latter, and so it's thankfully not the former. You would not want to interact with the kind of twisted things they've got on display, but they sure are fun to look at.

Go Here: El Cosmico in Marfa, TX

Ever since I saw Baz Luhrmann's magical 1996 interpretation of 'Romeo and Juliet,' I've romanticized the idea of living in a weird desert trailer park. Now that I'm a grown up, the idea of permanent residence in one is slightly less appealing, but El Cosmico is a communal outpost in the deserts of West Texas that lets you pretend for the night.

Go Here: Traveling Robot Zoo

Technically, this is an exhibit for children, but come on, so much cool stuff is wasted on kids. If you live in Texas, you've got until January 29th to meet a gigantic giraffe robot, and if you don't want to meet a giant giraffe robot, we don't know what to say to you, really. Not in TX? Don't worry, though, these robots travel. BONUS: Weirdly outdated kid fashion, after the jump.

Go Here: Centralia — Abandoned Mine Fire and Ghost Town in Pennsylvania

When people ask my why I won't watch horror movies, I tell them that I've never seen 'Silent Hill' because Centralia exists, and it's creepy enough.

Go Here: South of the Border

Usually when I'm traveling, I avoid kitschy tourist stuff like the plague. Most often it's  has little to do with the actual culture of the place I'm visiting, and I get bored pretty easily. The infamous South of the Border (SOTB) is an exception, though. Seated on the line between North and South Carolina, this 1950s roadside mecca is nothing but kitsch, and its massive scale and outdated motif make it a place worth visiting.

Go Here: The Museum of the City of New York

Let me start by saying that I think the name of this museum sounds boring, too. I only found out that it was awesome because I was already in the neighborhood for something called 'Ice Derby,' which is a much better name but had unbeknownst to me been rescheduled. Don't worry, I'm still going to Ice Derby, and will report back, but instead I met a robot who smokes and plays records and I'm going to tell you about it.

Go Here: The Weird Chicago Tour

Chicago's may be known as "The Windy City," but who cares about wind, besides oscillating fan enthusiasts, and who cares about them besides their moms? Chicago is also touted as the most haunted city in America, and that's way more awesome. You know what else is awesome? Gangsters, red light districts and serial killers.
