Welcome to FABULOUS Kitsch Nation!
~ Your Guide to the Kitsch Byways of America!~

Kitsch Nation is your resource for information about kitsch in the USA. What it is, and where to find it.

On this site, you will find a directory of good "bad" culture, offbeat attractions, and unusual places that you can BROWSE by state and county, or visit HistoryKitsch, our combined History Bazaar and Kitsch Nation blog, and easily SEARCH the editorial content and place directories of both sites!

roadside kitsch When traveling the "kitsch byways" of the
United States, even at the dawn of the 21st century, one still confronts a beguiling and parochial landscape of crumbling buildings,
junk cars, eccentric signage, and people of "broken mold" charm.

Our directory is not just the typical list of well worn tourist attractions like the "worlds largest ball of twine," etc. Many of the entries are not found on any other "tourist" site, and that's the way we want it! Sometimes you have to get muddy or hike a trail to find them, crawl into the earth, or drive for miles down a dusty pigtrail of a dirt road to get to some of the places in Kitsch Nation. Or you can just sit in the comfort or your easy chair, or in front of your laptop or tablet at your favorite coffee bar and read about them.

We want you to be a part of Kitsch Nation, since you either live in it, or are visiting it, so please SEND us information about any kitsch places and sites you encounter. If we add your contribution to Kitsch Nation, we will list you as a contributor and give you a backlink to your website or blog (if you are not too embarrassed to have one!)
