Ever wonder about package delivery before Amazon? Do you know why millipedes in Sequoia National Park glow in the dark? Maybe a cafe shaped like a camera, where you can sit inside and look out through a lens would make you want to travel to Seoul, Korea? Want something that will help you to spend more time on the Internet? The answer is Atlas Obscura.
The web site is organized into Places, Articles, Events and even a Random Place link.
In their own words:
“Atlas Obscura is a collaborative project. We depend on our far-flung community of explorers (like you!) to help us discover amazing, hidden spots, and share them with the world. “
And their statement of “What We Believe”:
- There is something new under the sun, every day, all over the world.
- Around the corner is something that will surprise the hell out of you.
- Atlas Obscura is for people who still believe in discovery.
You can sign up for a weekly e-mail that will send you to places you did not know existed or topics you did not know you were interested in.
