A roadside attraction that, according to some people is “worth planning a trip around.” Honestly, it depends on what your thing is — and hey, if you’re in Wisconsin, and you want to see massive replicas of music machines and sea Krakens, then you’re in for a treat!
Opened in the late 1950s, there’s a carousel room with almost 200 chandeliers — maybe not a tourist trap!
The Farnham Colossi
Want to feel small? Like, really small? Have young kids? Then this place probably will be worth every penny to keep them entertained! It’s called Farnham Colossi (Land of Giants) and it’s in Unger, West Virginia.
The property has a ton of oversized statues and even a giant Santa Claus! Santa…is…real, okay kids?!
Cross Island Chapel
Picture the teensiest, tiniest chapel in the world. Okay, got it? Open your eyes — it probably looked something like Cross Island Chapel, right? Located in Oneida, New York, the 30 square foot chapel only has the space for the essentials — two lovebirds and an officiator.
If you wanted a place to elope that wasn’t Vegas, this is it! Definitely not a tourist trap.
Largest Chest of Drawers
If you’re visiting North Carolina, you may have heard about High Point’s largest chest of drawers. An interesting thing to be made giant-size, and from its proportions, it should probably be in Texas, right?
Anyway, it’s 32 feet high and not a bad photo op, particularly if you want a cool pic for social media! Other than the Instagrammable moment, we're not sure this site is worth the trip.
Salt and Pepper Museum
Some people collect coins, others collect cars, jewelry, baseball cards even — but this archaeologist from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, fell in love with salt and pepper shakers.
In twenty-five years, the collector has amassed over 20,000 sets of the shakers in weird and wonderful shapes, including little shoes, chess pieces, cake stands, cars…gosh, you name it and it’s probably there! A quirky, fun little tourist attraction — if you want to shake things up, check this place out.
