Would have thought that they would go to the Florida Keys for Hemingway.

CORMAC MCCARTHY - KNOXVILLE, TN

Or you could just wander the desert and take painstaking notes about all the flora you encounter.

I have a 'tour' of Kurt Vonnegut's locations around the area. Except his house. That would be creepy. I send them to the Kennedy's place.

A travel guide to the USA simplified: Are you a white male American, preferably with lots of money? If your answer is no,  avoid this country like the plague; it will eat you alive.

Head to Charlottesville to see his dorm room and the place he buried the Telltale heart before being kicked out of school.

Or come to Baltimore and have a few drinks at the bar where Poe was last seen alive.

You can also grab a drink at the Owl Bar, where H.L. Mencken and F. Scott Fitzgerald used to get shiatfaced together.

Really? So all of the Asian tourists are eating their time?

America isn't a really amazing tourist destination; you have days of travel time for each site. In Europe or most of Asia, you can hit so many places in walking distance that you could spend days in each one.

America tends more towards 'nature' tourism in the international way, like the Grand Canyon, or the Redwoods. We don't have a ton of really cool cultural sites like other countries because we've only been here a few hundred years.

Afterwards, head back into town towards the Thomas Hill Standpipe, a 105-year-old water tower which you may remember played a hefty role in IT, as the scene of children's bodies being pulled out.  Further King geekdom can be achieved by hunting for a nearby park bench, reportedly where the author came up with this grizzliest of plot details.

There was a bear in IT?

Lord Jubjub: Would have thought that they would go to the Florida Keys for Hemingway.


I would have thought that too... but maybe even having new orleans for faulkner, and adding tennessee williams and some others to new orleans.

though, i can still understand faulkner as mississippi.
