A Rainbow-Hued National Park (https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/rainbow-water-congaree-national-park?utm_source=Atlas+Obscura+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=580850de39-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_06_29&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f36db9c480-580850de39-71802774&mc_cid=580850de39&mc_eid=[UNIQID])
With its sometimes-swampy landscape stippled with soaring cypresses, South Carolina’s Congaree National Park looks like a prehistoric diorama. And occasionally, when conditions are right, it also resembles a Lisa Frank folder come to life with its orangey, blue, and pinky-red hues.

Located in the North Sea, the naval fort known as the Principality of Sealand is the world’s best-known micronation. It has two caretakers, who alternate two-week stints on Sealand as their full-time jobs. Unsurprisingly, maintaining it is no easy task.

Nathan’s might be synonymous with hot dogs in Brooklyn, but it was a German immigrant named Charles Feltman who introduced them to Coney Island in the first place. His final resting place is a grand mausoleum in Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery.

Mexico City’s Xochimilco neighborhood used to boast a sprawling system of floating gardens called chinampas, built by the Aztecs to feed a growing population. In response to pandemic-related interruptions in the food supply, small farmers are looking to revive this idea of chinampa farming.

We all know “Yankee Doodle,” where the first verse describes an American man who “stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni.” The “macaroni” in question does not, however, refer to the food, but rather to a fashion trend that began in the 1760s among aristocratic British men.
