About this book

Praised as the "bestest travel guide ever" (Mary Roach) and "a joy to read and reread" (Neil Gaiman), Atlas Obscura is a phenomenon of travel books: "Odds are you won't get past three pages without being amazed" (San Francisco Chronicle). It rocketed to the top of bestseller lists and has over 626,000 copies in print since its publication in late 2016. Now the best gets better and the weirdest gets weirder with this completely revised and updated second edition that includes 120 new entries that offer readers even more of the most unusual, curious, bizarre, and mysterious places on earth. In addition, the second edition includes a full-color gatefold Atlas Obscura road trip map, with a dream itinerary.

Created by the founders of AtlasObscura.com, the vibrant travel community that's grown substantially since the original edition – not only online but in stores, too, with the recent publication of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Atlas Obscura Explorer's Guide for the World's Most Adventurous KidAtlas Obscura expands the reader's sense of what's possible.

It informs us on every page of something we never knew – and paints a rich panorama of what a marvelously strange world we live in. For the travel lover and curious reader, it's a gift book that's literally impossible to put down.
