Popular Mechanics has published their list of The World’s 18 Strangest Roadways highlighting the most notable roads in the world. Surprisingly seven of the eighteen roadways are located in the United States. These roadways are spread throughout the United States – Hawaii, North Carolina, Alaska, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas and California.
Some of our favorites include:
The Cherohala Skyway which runs from the mountains of North Carolina through Tennessee. The skyway has elevations ranging from 900 feet above sea level in Tennessee to 5,400 feet above sea level at Haw Knob, North Carolina and has been deemed a National Scenic Byway by the Federal Highway Administration.
Capulin Volcano Road located in Capulin, New Mexico. The 2 mile road climbs Capulin Volcano and has a peak elevation of 8182 feet. Travelers can hike down into the crater after reaching the summit of the volcano. President Woodrow Wilson set Capulin Volcano aside as a National Monument in 1916.
Lombard Street located in San Francisco, California. This is San Francisco’s most recognizable street with it’s curvy streets and vibrant shrubbery. The road was previously a straight road with a 27% grade which was too steep for most vehicles to climb. The eight switchback turns were added in 1922 to reduce the grade, making the road safer for drivers and pedestrians.

In her April 2009 Mobility article, Corporate Housing Myths Debunked, Kimberly Smith discusses some of the most important aspects of the corporate housing market and debunks some of the most famous myths associated with the industry.
True or False – Corporate Housing Is Just an Extended Stay Hotel in Disguise
Compared to Hotels, Corporate Housing Offers:
- Cheaper temporary housing
- Apartments and townhouses with more square footage
- A like-home feel in a residential environment
- Many more amenities, such as housekeeping and full-kitchens
- Safety provided by on-site 24-hour security
True or False – A Company Can Easily Do Corporate Housing for Less
Companies who try to offer their own corporate housing most often end up handing over the corporate relocation to corporate providers who have it down to a science. Factoring in the set-up costs, delivery fees, and the money that goes into furnishing the apartment and keeping up the utilities, as well as the time involved in setting up corporate housing, most companies cannot afford to handle corporate housing themselves.
True or False – Corporate Housing Is For People Other Than Just the Business Traveler
Although the corporate housing industry is known for catering to business executives and relocating professionals, corporate housing is also widely used by:
-Students attending college
-Families in between homes
True or False – Not All Corporate Housing Companies and Leasing Agents are the Same
There are several different companies who provide temporary housing. They differ by several factors:
Churchill Corporate Services is an industry leader with affordable rates and a wide-selection of temporary housing locations. Some of Churchill’s other services include furniture rental, disaster housing, and apartment management.

The story of the American experience in the World War II changed with the June 2000 opening of the World War II Museum in New Orleans. Located at 945 Magazine Street in New Orleans, the World War II Museum is the “only museum in the United States that addresses all of the D-Day invasions of World War II, paying tribute to the more than one million Americans who took part”.
On Nov. 6, 2009, a $60 million dollar addition to the museum was unveiled to the public. The new building, one of four to be added to the museum by 2015, contains three new attractions: the Solomon Victory Theater, the State Door Canteen and the American Sector Restaurant. The three day festivities entitled, “Experience the Victory,” was dubbed to reference and honor not only the veterans, but the revitalization of the culture and tourism in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
The Greater New Orleans Veterans Council and the Military Order of the Purple Heart will be holding a Veterans Day celebration in downtown New Orleans beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the National WWII Museum, followed by the annual Veterans Day parade beginning at 11 a.m. on Sugar Bowl Drive in front of the Superdome.
