Top 5 alternative USA roadside attractions

The all American road trip is a holiday that most of us dream of going on – riding the open road without a care in the world and stopping off at all the inspiring places along the way. The US roads are filled with unique landmarks and top-notch sites, but some are less heard of than others...

We all picture the countless diners, beautiful landscapes and honky tonk bars that can be found on a road trip in North America, but what about the quirky and obscure sites that are yet to be discovered by many visiting the home of the brave? Jump in your Mustang and join us as we take a look at the top five alternative US attractions we bet you've never heard of that can be found on an American road trip!

Wigwam Motel

Route 66, America’s most famous road trip route, takes you across the country and offers some beautiful sites, but it also takes you past the Wigwam Motel in sunny California. Built in 1947, this bizarre looking motel lets you camp out in a tipi – perfect if you fancy a kip after a long drive!

Monkey Jungle
Monkey Jungle, Miami

Holidays in Florida provide many great attractions - Disneyworld, Universal Studios and the Everglades, to name a few, but none are as crazy as the Monkey Jungle in Miami. Take a drive to the suburbs of Miami to visit this wildlife park which contains 400 primates roaming free through 30 acres of jungle!

Giant Bowler Hat

Driving along the Texan highway you may just spot the Big British Bowler Hat of Texas. This 20-foot-wide piece of headwear sits alone in a empty parking lot in the city of Dallas.

World’s Smallest Church

Over on the East Coast of America you can find a place of worship that can only fit three people, including a pastor. This tiny church in Oneida, New York is a must see if you’re in the area while on your American road trip.

Blue Whale

Last on our list is another site that can be found on the Route 66. The Blue Whale in Oklahoma is an 80-foot-long sculpture that was built in the early 70’s to attract tourists to the local zoo.
