Food, Folks and Fun at the Big Mac Museum

August 22, 2008

Big MacDid they? Did they really? Did McDonald’s create a Big Mac Museum? Yeah, they did, and it celebrates its one-year anniversary this weekend.

Thank you, RoadsideAmerica.com, for finding these treasures and sharing them with us.

If you find yourself near North Huntingdon, PA, stop in for a bite to eat at this working McDonald’s and take a picture with the giant hamburger in the window. Why? Because people like to take pictures of giant things. It kitchy and silly and for years after your trip you can look at it and say, “Remember the Big Mac Museum? That place was so weird.”

Most travel is driven by things we want to see, experiences we want to have. But sometimes curiosity or the fact that something seems bizarre or repellent is just as good a reason to get in your car and go. Why else would circuses have moustached women, albino alligators or two-headed goats?
