A way to suggest articles?

I was wondering if there was a way to do this?
Yesterday we came by the town of Rättvik in Sweden and it is very AOesque. The whole town is obsessed with 1950’s US greaser culture. They all drive around in old us hotrods and dress in old us clothing. There is even a US nostalgia museum, 50s diner and a yearly massive classic car convention. I think that you guys could do a cool feature there.

Did you take pictures? You can actually write articles yourself and contribute them to the site! There is an add-a-site link at the bottom of every page. Just be patient with feedback and understand that not every article can be accepted for various reasons. For example, they don’t like accepting articles for large geographical places like towns. However, a single location with an address (like that US nostalgia museum) sounds like an amazing entry! You can even expand on the US-inspired culture of the town as a whole, just so long as the main focus is the one single place you choose.

Hey, I know about the places. Got almost 250 of those published. I was talking about their articles like https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/irish-epidemic-inspired-dracula

Thanks for the tip though. :slight_smile:
