Leroy, New York: Jell-O Museum
There's always room for Jell-O during a vacation.
The dessert was invented in Leroy, exit 47 on the New York State Thruway near Rochester. The Jell-O Museum is part of a small little historical complex on the main street of the town. Jell-O was invented in LeRoy back in the 19th century, and this is a nice little tribute to the stuff. There are old boxes and ads on display. Yes, Bill Cosby has been there.
Oh, and make sure you walk on the brick road that's in front of the building, shown.
That's right -- the Jell-O brick road.
