What do the Statue of Liberty and the Original American Kazoo Company have in common?

They're both listed as must-see destinations in the New York section of A Sightseer's Guide to Engineering (www.engineeringsights.org), a new resource designed to entice travelers to add "exciting engineering achievements and activities" to their vacation itineraries.

While some still may be tempted to call a travel agent for vacation advice, the site modestly points out that engineers are responsible for some of the most structurally significant sights to see across the country. The home page of the site asks the thought-provoking question: "Do you realize that nearly everything around you that makes your life more fun ... has been created by an engineer?"
