Roads:

- Natchez Trace Parkway (not that scenic)
- West Virginia Turnpike (Wikipedia article still has the “88 miles of miracle” line; its an ordinary 4 lane road in the Appalachians, not special, and, in fact, the northern third is substandard)
- All “new” interstates, 73, 74, 69, 99, etc.  (Just use the underlaying US route numbers, nothing says a US or State route cannot be of interstate quality).
- US 66 (Only famous because it worked in a song, really never this mega important highway).

Off-topic:

- Chicago.
- Jeff Ruby steakhouses.
- Fenway Park.

You forgot Wrigley Field - multimillion-dollar renovation and the place still smells like hot-dog-and-Old-Style farts.

Bagels.

Depends where you get them from. If they're done right, they're excellent. I've even had homemade bagels a few times, and those are pretty, pretty good.

Don't sell its overratedness short. Route 66 is also famous because of a book, the movie based off that book, a different book, a television show, and an oil company.

Everybody I talk to says the same.  I have never been, and was trying to keep it to my personal knowledge.  My list of away ballparks (I live in Reds Country) is pretty short.

What is really maddening to me is looking through minutes the AASHTO and seeing a totally different narrative for US 66 than has been cooked up by pop culture.  Just presenting actual evidence to US 66 fans that the highway never ended at 7th and Broadway in Los Angeles was met with a bunch of backlash.  I think it was even the impetus for when I created the “Road Mandela Effect Thread.”
