A lavishly illustrated travel-lover’s calendar of more than 300 eccentric destinations.
It’s a year of amazing destinations, quirky events, and fascinating global phenomena for travelers, adventurers, and lovers of the offbeat and obscure that’s the expertise of Atlas Obscura, the hugely popular website and #1 New York Times bestselling book. Discover North Carolina’s 400-year-old Mother Vine, believed to be the oldest grapevine in North America. The towering summit of Fanjingshan, the highest peak of the Wuling Mountains—reachable by cable car or an 8,000+ step climb. Lincoln, New Hampshire’s ethereal ice castles, composed of icicles formed by water dripping out of specially placed pipes. Plus the Museum of Soviet Arcade Games, a taste of 1920s Shanghai at the Peace Hotel Jazz Bar, and Sri Lanka’s biggest Buddha (reachable through the Tunnel of Hell). Every day is more curious than the last. Printed on FSC-certified paper and 100% recyclable.
