Aren’t road trips the best? There’s nothing better than cruising down the highway with uninterrupted thoughts of freedom. Well, uninterrupted thoughts until you see a sign asking you what “The Thing” is or you catch a glimpse of a six-pack of beer the size of skyscrapers. Next time you’re ready to drive into the sunset, follow our list of the best road trip attractions along the way.
Just off the famed Route 66 in the middle of the West Texas oil fields is a public art installation dedicated to the skeletons of old Cadillacs. The classic cars are half-buried nose first in the hard soil, at angles that represent the Great Pyramid of Giza. Grab a can of spray paint and add to the eclectic collection of tags.
The “Bluegrass State” is known for many wonderful things like basketball, bourbon, and the colonel’s fried chicken. But it also has one of the creepiest museums on the planet. The Vent Haven Museum is the world’s only museum of ventriloquial figures and memorabilia.
There you have it, folks. The wackiest road trip tourist attractions in America. From something in the Arizona desert to half-buried Cadillacs in the Texas oil fields, you’re sure to find something that’ll catch your attention on your next road trip.
