The 30 Weirdest Roadside Attractions Right Here in the U.S.

It’s summer road trip season which means an unforgettable summer vacation doesn’t always require hopping on a plane and traveling overseas. You can find truly fascinating haunts right here in your own backyard. If you’re itching to jump into your car and embark on an unforgettable road trip, know that there are plenty of stops just waiting to be discovered all across the U.S. — many of them rich in history.

From the strange (like Seattle’s Gum Wall, which began in the 1990s with people posting coins on the wall with the help of, you guessed it, gum) and the WTF (like Cadillac Ranch just outside of Amarillo, Texas) to the absolutely gross (like Hair Museum in Missouri), we’ve rounded up 30 must-pull-over destinations for your next trip.

So, what are you waiting for? Don’t let summer pass you by without seeing at least one of these roadside attractions. Pack your bags and prepare yourself for the weird.
