American traveler reveals the weirdest place he’s ever been
AN American writer has revealed the weirdest place he’s ever been – and it’s in the UK.
Twitter user Jeff VanderMeer has traveled the world, visiting over 40 countries.
However, the strangest place he said he had ever been? The seaside resort of Blackpool.
He wrote on social networks“The strangest place I’ve been to, by the way, since it’s been in the news… is Blackpool, England.
“That includes over 40 countries I’ve been to. Absolutely and nerve-wrackingly at the top of the list.
He continued: “Listen, take too many tweets to explain why. Maybe the sordid and family combo, the weird nighttime vibe of jubilation and violence.
“The donkeys on the beach. The cheeky architecture types crammed into the same buildings. The banging thing at the end of the driveway.”
Some Britons were outraged, singing the resort’s praises.
One person said: ‘The beach, the sunsets, the art, the cool bars and clubs, you have to come back every once in a while and dive a little deeper.’
Someone added: “It’s the English beach town of Vegas with ballroom dancing.”
Another person said while it was ‘fair’ it was ‘worth adding that one of the most popular TV events of the year is ‘Blackpool’ on Strictly Come Dancing (the original Dancing with the Stars)”.
Others agreed with Jeff, as one woman wrote, “This is my hometown and I see what you mean!
Someone else said, “That, my friend, is almost every seaside town here in England.”
However, there are some exciting things coming to Blackpool soon, including a Peter Rabbit tourist attraction.
A new £300million attraction is set to open, featuring three huge indoor theme parks, live performances and a number of rides and shows.
You can also ride the tallest roller coaster in the UK in Blackpool.
Thrill seekers can climb The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach to reach the dizzying height of 235 feet.
