A WARM WELCOME

to friends and fellow travelers. We call Hidden America 'a site dedicated to On The Road Americana'. We like to think of ourselves as an off-the-beaten path turn on the information highway. We have alot of informative entertaining and just plain fun stuff ranging from our monthly newsletter and trivia to reading lists, the unique Village Shops, and hundreds of links. All of it is based on those gems of Americana that lie off the beaten path and beyond the interstate.

On the page below we suggest some timely highlights from our site to consider. If you would like a complete description of all the sections to be found on this site, visit the Site Guide Junction.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your stay. We hope you'll come back often as we update the site frequently. In the meantime, we hope you'll share with us your thoughts and suggestions for and about the site.

Happy Surfing and Happy Motoring!

Eric Model,
Founder - Hidden America.
