Description

Mount Rushmore, the Motown museum, a dinosaur trail, and a hot rod showplace are among the fascinating array of well-known, historical, and wonderfully oddball destinations on Charlie's travels. For every state, a selection of Did You Know... facts adds colorful information about the stops along the way. Did you Know... why Missouri is called the "Show-Me- State"? where Kool-Aid was invented? where you can find a 600-pound ball of stamps? And do you think you'll be able to spot the hidden Charlie in every state?
