Roadside Attractions Add Fun To Your Trip

Going on a road trip this summer? Instead of trying to get to your destination as quickly as possible, make the trip part of the entertainment. Take some taking detours off the main superhighways to visit off-beat roadside attractions. They're a fun diversion, especially if you're traveling with kids.

Get photos of you or your family in front of memorable, kitschy, giant constructions, such as:

  • a 19-ft smiling potato in Maugerville, New Brunswick
  • a 40,000-gallon coffeepot in Stanton, Iowa
  • a house in the shape of a shoe in Hellam, PA
  • a giant sundial in the shape of a woman's leg
. . . and thousands more.

Here are some websites where you can view photos of roadside attractions and also get directions to visit them:
