What a Trip, Indeed!
Ready for a real trippy destination next time you hit the recreational road? Well, the wandering morning guy has come across a handful of pretty wacky attractions you might consider when next you crave a change of scenery. If you are looking for a road trip that promises to be anything but “normal” – this is the list for you. I found it at a website called alittlebithuman.com They put together what they call the 6 weirdest tourist attractions in the United States. I have not visited any…yet, so I’m unable to offer my take on these sites and must refrain from any commentary. Go forth with a full tank and an open mind, and let me know how it goes! Here’s the list:
Leila’s Hair Museum (Independence, Missouri): The world’s only collection of art made from human hair
SPAM Museum (Austin, Minnesota): You guessed it – a museum dedicated entirely to the famous canned meat brand
Paper House (Rockport, Massachusetts): Visit a home built by a mechanical engineer where all of the interior walls, floors, and furniture are made out of newspapers
Nuclear Waste Adventure Trail (Weldon Spring, Missouri): A massive 54-acre tomb shaped like a trapezoid, made out of old radioactive material. Apparently, there’s no risk of getting radiation sickness from it – they just needed a creative way to clean up a massive mess of radioactive material
Carhenge (Alliance, Nebraska): A take on Stonehenge, but made out of cars. Lots of cars, including a 1965 Ford Thunderbird and a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado.
Mitchell Corn Palace (Mitchell, South Dakota): Extensive murals made entirely of corn and other grains
