On our summer road trip, my daughter sitting in the back seat blurted out, "if I ran the world, all of these billboards we are passing would have cats on them." Oddly enough, this weeks columns will be dedicated to the dogs, after I flesh out the fun topic of the billboards we pass while driving cross country.
Most billboards advertise hotels, food, area attractions, and gas. When I ask my car full of kids which sign stood out the most during our trip, which I am still currently traveling, they had mixed reviews. One favorite read: "Hey, I'm working here!" Yet, this billboard was merely advertising it's availability. For me, the Broadway billboards that I get stuck in front of while waiting to take the Lincoln Tunnel are the most memorable. Probably because I'm starting at them for a long time during rush hour traffic. I'd say McDonald's holds the biggest monopoly, and is the winner for most marked rest stop, with their towering golden arches. What billboard would make me, the mom behind the wheel of a car full of kids, want to stop in my tracks? One that promises healthy food (and no, chicken fingers don't count), cheap gas, and really clean rest stops, preferably with mouth wash. Happy travels!
