If you're like me, when you go someplace new, you don't necessarily need to see every monument. And one or two art museums will satisfy you. So, when you are looking for that good story and/or photo, here is a great resource for just plain weird and (most of the time) very cool attractions: Atlas Obscura.

You can also add your own obscure stores, museums, and sights to the atlas. I just love the adventure and mystery of it all!
