I'm stuck in the city because of COVID this year, so to make up for it I've been loving around on Google maps/reviews. Here are some of the images I've found to fill the small town void.

I think it refers to the guns these people are conceal carrying, you need 3 per person to classify as americana.

I really miss yard sales and flea markets. Although all the flea markets I've been to in the last 5~ years seemed to have progressively more "fell off the back of the truck" style poo poo selling packaged garbage

Those types of diners are rare nowadays but their design is pretty loving rad, IMO. It makes serving the whole restaurant really easy and the wait staff has really access to the kitchen.

This is a metaphor, a Christian allegory. The fact that I have to explain to you that Jesus is the Warthog, and the Banana is drepanocytosis is just embarrassing for you.

I was in a diner like this in Yellowstone. It's a place to get a hot meal if you don't/can't cook at your campground while also providing the park with some via the gift shop.

It may have been this one! It was listed as a Country Store in Yellowstone.

It was definitely built in like the 1950s and hasn't been updated since. Burger and fries were great though! So, very Americana.

Speaking of places built ages ago and never updated since, South of the Border is an "attraction" that has approximately 186,282,399 billboards all up and down I-95. They have fireworks, a reptile pit, a motel, a general store, all kinds of stuff, but I have no idea how they make any money given how much they seem to spend on advertising. Wifezwang and I drove through there once to see if we could get something to eat, but we decided the risk of getting hepatitis was too high, so we hosed off to a Waffle House instead.

On one hand, I hate everything in this thread. On the other, seeing this just made me instantly nostalgic for about 50 different moments and relatives and trips to see grandparents and family vacations simultaneously, so maybe I actually love all of it?

Also South of the Border is amazing because I always wanted to go there after seeing it talked up in Jean Shepherd's Great American Fourth of July or whatever it was called, and when I finally went there with my girlfriend we took some pictures and wondered how it stayed in business with no customers and left because we, too, like the Zugzwangs, were concerned about getting hepatitis at the diner
