Here at Atlas Obscura, it’s our belief that hidden wonders aren’t just found in big cities. Noteworthy histories, legends, and adventures are equally abundant outside America’s most iconic destinations, with surprises lurking around every corner.

As the definitive guide to the world’s hidden wonders, Atlas Obscura is dedicated to telling these stories. In our new series, Get Out Of Town, created in partnership with Brand USA, host Oneika Raymond travels to four of these amazing destinations around the country, and has a whole lot of fun along the way.
