{ roadside america } Fred Smith's Concrete Park

While my 10-year class reunion wasn't that much fun, numerous roadside attractions and daytime adventures made the trip to Ashland worthwhile. First stop: Fred Smith's Concrete Park in Phillips, Wis. In 1950, Fred Smith, lumberjack and local tavern owner, began construction of concrete statutes embellished with shards of broken glass. The self-taught American folk artist created over 200 sculptures for passersby to enjoy.

Outfit Notes: Tee Shirt - Old Navy; Shorts - J.Crew; Sunglasses - Ralph by Ralph Lauren; Bracelet - House of Harlow; Bag - Foley + Corinna; Sandals - Sam Edelman
