Weirdest Roadside Attractions in All 50 States

We know there are questions around travel amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Read our note here.

Adventurous road trippers thrive on quirky roadside attractions. Not only do they break up the monotony of long days in the car, but roadside attractions can often bring excitement and a sense of purpose to the journey. But after pulling over to see a big ball of twine more than once, it soon becomes clear that some wacky attractions prove to be more entertaining than others. From drive-thru museums to haunted brothels and a chapel built for dogs, here is the ultimate list of the weirdest roadside attraction in each state.

Alabama: The Drive-Thru Museum of Wonder

Located off U.S Route 431 in the eastern Alabama town of Seale, the Drive-Thru Museum of Wonder doesn’t even require exiting your car. What began with a single oddity — a knobby turnip that resembled a human face — led to an eccentric drive-thru museum that features a variety of curiosities and art installations designed by artist Butch Anthony. Since the museum is open 24/7, visitors drive through the stacked shipping containers at all hours of the day and night to view Anthony’s spooky displays, including painted skeletons, bizarre monsters, and taxidermy sculptures.

Alaska: Dr. Seuss House

Spiraling out of the woods near Willow, Alaska, outside of Anchorage, is a building that looks like it belongs in a children’s book. With multiple floors of different sizes stacked upon each other, the whimsical building resembles the wacky homes illustrated in the beloved Dr. Seuss books. Known as the Dr. Seuss House to locals, the cabin’s original owner (not actually Dr. Seuss) wanted a view of Mount Denali in the distance — as the trees around him continued to grow, so did the floors on his house until it reached 185 feet tall. Although visitors are not allowed inside the curious structure, the building’s upper floors are easily visible from the road.
