Roadside Attractions


June 20th, 2007 ~ It's summertime and the living's easy. Jump in as we hit the road in search of new faces and places. Head north out of New Orleans, across Lake Pontchartrain, to the Abita Mystery House and UCM Museum in Abita Springs. And, much further north, to the Musical Wonder House in Wiscasset, Maine. Plus, a refreshing visit to a local New Orleans favorite, Hansen's Sno-Bliz, where they're still servin' up the best sno-cones you've ever tasted.
