Atlas Obscura was created in 2009 by Brooklyn, NYC-based Dylan Thuras and Joshua Foer.

Described as the “definitive guide to the world’s hidden wonders,” Atlas Obscura is an interactive guide to cool, strange, unusual places, food, and knowledge. This ongoing collaborative international mapping and cataloging project grows every day.

Themed around discovery and exploration, Atlas Obscura encourages people to be adventurous and become travelers in their own communities and around the globe.

They have stuff from everywhere, even 40 places in the city of Detroit and 156 places in the state of Michigan!

To help drive this positive & global phenomenon, Dylan helped craft a book entitled ‘Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders‘.

Published in September 2016 by Workman Publishing Group, the guide runs 480 pages and was compiled by Dylan Thuras, Joshua Foer and Ella Morton.

What’s especially cool about Atlas Obscura is that anyone, anywhere in the world can be a contributor. The online atlas has over 17,000 catalog entries created by a “global community of explorers.”

You will love this book. Enter now for your chance to win!
