    Quoted from ryanwanger:

    My AirBnb space has 5 arcade games (Turbo, Frogger, Joust, Battlezone, Ms Pac-man) and 3 pins (Breakshot, Twilight Zone, High Speed) at the moment.
    It would be cool if we could compile a master list somewhere - so road-tripping pinheads would know where to stay.

    Not a bad idea, actually!

    Good suggestions so far. I do have to plug Grand Rapids, MI. This is THE place if you like craft breweries & gourmet bar food. The micro brew scene is pretty remarkable. Plus it's a cute, fairly walkable, & fun city with really great people and surprisingly good food. GR has it all: concerts, minor league hockey, even some decent pinball...

    If you have time, drive 35 mins west to Grand Haven, which is my neighborhood and one of the most beautiful coastal towns in the country. I'm biased, but also completely right... Great place to get ice cream, walk the pier, and watch a Lake Michigan sunset.

    Try San Diego sometime.. Has all that stuff in spades.. Particularly craft beer, gastropubs.. And not cold, ever.

    Millions of things to see in the USA..... and don't forget to play pinball along the way.

    I completely agree with this. Hit the really great stuff that makes America great and different. Don't let Top Gear fool you and claim you can break even buying a car and then reselling. Maybe if you get lucky on both ends, get the person you bought from to leave the plates on and simply hand over the title to next person without putting your name on it. Buyer pays sales tax so that should be able to be flipped to the next person. You have 30 days to get insurance, so your normal policy should cover you like you are driving a rental or a friends car.

    Too bad you can't get to St. Louis now. I drove West and N. Florissant the other day, which is where the Ferguson riots occurred. I don't know what international news is saying, but this is something people should see for themselves. Especially, W Florissant looks like a tornado came through, but people were prepared for a hurricane. Totally safe during the day. By next Summer it'll probably be all cleaned up.
