With more than 1000 entries, there's never a dull moment-eccentrically speaking, that is--in America. Offering a provocative look at the quirky people and places on the fringes of mainstream tourism, Eccentric America guides you to some of the country's most unforgettable experiences.
We've been working non-stop on improving your interaction abilities with our website. While hardcopy guide books are great, we realize that everything has gone viral now. So, to keep up with the tech-times, we have transitioned all of our past and future books into a one-stop, always evolving, massive database of everything offbeat Americans have to offer.
Check out our list of new features and then explore our website to see for yourself. Our hope is that the new Eccentric America is easier, more affordable, and more current for your needs and wants.

"Author Jan Friedman brings a wicked sense of the absurd to listings for places as strange as the Future Birthplace of Capt. Kirk in Iowa, the office building shaped like a giant picnic basket in Ohio, and the B&B in a cave in New Mexico."

"Eccentric America leapt off the book shelf and into my hand. Many uncontrollable chuckles and a few tears of laughter later, I exited the book shop with two copies. Within five merry, laughter-filled minutes the eleven year old son of a friend said, "Thanks, Tom," took a copy, and commenced planning his family's upcoming road trip to LA. We're all going adventuring together, thank you.
Janet has created a classic guide that has loaded my life with kinky, weird and fascinating now and in-the-future destinations of interest, erstwhile she has filled my soul with laughter, laughter and more laughter.
A bit of local adventuring initiated by Janet's cook book of weird and wacky, and I was thinking, "I've got an idea or two for you, Lady." Then I visited her website. Oh my god, the adventure bug is contagious. Just can't wait for what Janet and her team comes up with next."
