Oh, the wonders you can see!

Debi says: The Good Girls are digging to the very bottom of the Dakotas in search of stories.

Judy says: The things you learn talking to travel specialists at Travel Media Showcase:

You can drive a tank (!) over a car or through a mobile home in Mankato, Minnesota.

Summit Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota, is 3 1/2 miles of Victorian architecture where when he lived there, F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote "This Side of Paradise." If the author were still there he would be sharing the street with Garrison Keillor.

Oklahoma City is the horse show capital of the world.

Charlottesville, Va, has a higher ratio of restaurants to population than New York City.

The only farm house Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed in in Elgin, Illinois.

The only World War I museum in the country is in Kansas City, Missouri.

The shortest, steepest railway in the world is in Dubuque, Iowa.

The world's largest popcorn ball is on display in Sac City, Iowa. It's preserved in Saran Wrap!

Rockford, Illinois is the proud home of the Sock Monkey Museum. 

And people ask why I want to travel to such places.
