Description

Some travelers might say the middlemost state is pretty unremarkable, average, and humdrum -- which is to say, all the more splendid as a backdrop for the unexpected. Those looking for something a little different than praises of pioneers and plowshares will find a few unlikely attractions in the state's southeastern section. Among them are the putative birthplace of Star Trek's Captain Kirk character, a town that gives one of San Francisco's notable attractions a run for its money, a tiny rural hamlet that's downright cosmopolitan when it comes to cuisine, and a lighthearted motel hideaway, a place to flop that makes people flip.
