The Thing

The Thing is THE Thing

I have a certain fascination for The Thing, a roadside attraction since the 60’s. I’ve blogged about it frequently: The Thing. It used to be just a novelty that was worth a stop on your trip down Interstate 10 in southeastern Arizona. But now… now, it’s a destination! The new museum adds a tremendous backstory for The Thing. The museum used to a 50-cent tour through unheated pole buildings featuring old stuff – cars, and farm equipment. Now it’s a beautifully done $5-tour ($4 with senior discount).
