Group Description

This group is a companion piece of the website - a catalog of the cool vintage/retro/midcentury modern places that still exist and are worth a visit!

Update everyone with your latest Retro Roadtrips finds!

Group Rules

A few easy peasy guidelines:

The place in the photo must still exist- Retro Roadmap is a collection of cool old vintage places that someone could visit or see currently, not for historical images or places that don't exist anymore. Nothing bums out a retro-roadtripper more than thinking you're going to visit a drive in movie theatre you saw a photo of, only to find out that it's been replaced by a Walmart!

Knowledge is Power! Please include as much information as you can about the place you are recommending: Location, history, your personal thoughts on it. This way I can add it to the retroroadmap map to make it easier for people to see where things are. Think of it as the stuff you would tell someone if you were trying to convince them why it's a cool place to visit

If it's just nice to look at call it a "Photo Op"- Sometimes things that make good photos aren't the best places to visit for their intended use - cool looking vintage diners with lousy food, scary motels with great signage, etc. If a place is good for a photo but not it's original use, please label it a Photo Op. This way people who visit it know what they're getting themselves into, and won't be disappointed!

Sound good? Cool!
