One of the best parts of hauling your trailer is all of the great things you’ll see along the way. And while there will be plenty of opportunities for spontaneous memories, there are also a lot of great roadside attractions that your family should plan for as well. After all, this is the best way to get the most out of your vacation when planning it out in the beginning stages.
Here is a look at some unique and quirky must-see roadside attractions that are worth visiting.
Biosphere 2 – Oracle, Arizona
Want to get a look into what living in the future might be like? Don’t forget to stop at the Biosphere 2 in Oracle, Arizona. This futuristic looking facility is made from glass, and it sits amongst the Santa Catalina Mountains. Head inside to learn more about planets in the solar system, as well as what it’s like living in a closed off facility like this.
Benewah Milk Bottles – Spokane, Washington
Make your way up to the Pacific northwest and you can see a truly quirky site in the Benewah Milk Bottles in Spokane, Washington. These oversized bottles are located just west of Interstate 90, and you can’t miss the line of people that come from far and wide to see them. Not only is the Benewah Milk Bottles something that the average person comes to see, but it was also part of the famous Johnny Depp movie, Benny and Joon.
The Blue Whale – Catoosa, Oklahoma
This one certainly belongs on any list with “quirky” in it. The Blue Whale is something your entire family will love, and kids will get a kick out of visiting while in the Sooner State. The Blue Whale is over 80 feet long, and it is sitting on a small pond in little Catoosa. This is a true backwoods gem that’s worth finding, and it just goes to show that you never know what you’ll see on an American road trip.
Cabazon Dinosaurs – Cabazon, California
If whales don’t get your family excited, then maybe dinosaurs are more their taste. At the Cabazon Dinosaurs in California, you’ll see some towering dinos that are over 30 feet in height. Keep in mind that there is also a bit of a religious spin on things in this setup, so that is something to consider before taking your family.
Beer-Can House – Houston, Texas
No one loves 16 ounces of delicious hops more than the masterminds behind the Beer-Can House in Houston. This home was built by John Milkovisch in 1968, and it has amassed over 50,000 cans. There’s no more beer left in the cans, but it’s still worth stopping by and seeing.
There are plenty of places around America that are among the top tourist attractions in the world. But on your way to places like Disney or Times Square, stop to take a look at the quirky must-see roadside attractions listed here.
