Your typical family road trip just got an extra boost of weirdness thanks to these strange roadside attractions.
Stop by one of these peculiar destinations as you make your way across the United States. You never know what types of people or things you'll meet while visiting. ????
1. UFO Watchtower in Center, Colorado
If you were ever curious about what it'd be like to encounter an extraterrestrial being, there's no better chance for that to happen than at a UFO watchtower.
2. Miles the Monster in Dover, Delaware
Don't be frightened by this rock monster. His exterior may be tough, but on the inside he's a real softie and loves posing for photos with anyone brave enough to snap one with him.
3. Dinosaur World in Cave City, Kentucky
Get a first-hand experience at Jurassic World as you walk among these extinct species. Don't worry, they don't bite…hard.????

4. Lenny the Chocolate Moose in Scarborough, Maine
You might want to sink your teeth into Lenny and his milk-chocolatey goodness, but you'd probably be banned from the state of Maine for the rest of your life. You wouldn't want that now, would you?
This is Lenny, he is life size, weighs 1700lbs and is made of milk chocolate. Totally went out of our way in order to see him. That's Libby next to him, she's made of solid dark chocolate. #lennythemoose #lenny #lenlibbychocolatier #lenlibbycandyshop #scarboroughme #roadtrip #chocolate #chocolatemoose #libby #libbythebear #roadsideattraction #maine

5. World's Smallest Church in Syracuse, New York
Anchored down in the middle of a pond, this teeny tiny church only has enough room to fit the minister, bride and groom. Talk about an intimate occasion.
6. The Blue Whale in Catoosa, Oklahoma
This blue creature was once a water park, but he has since been abandoned—so sad! Stop by and pay him a visit if you're planning on driving through Oklahoma anytime soon.

7. Octopus Tree in Tillamook, Oregon
We guess this is what happens when flora and fauna collide. Not a tree you see every day, so it's certainly worth checking out.
8. World's Only Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota
It's literally a palace made out of corn. We're still wondering how we become the queen of this castle.
The worlds only palace made out of corn. It was cool to see all the pictures made from corn. Most of them are new every year. #cornpalace #southdakota #funtouriststuff

9. Ben & Jerry's Flavor Graveyard in Waterbury, Vermont
RIP to all the Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors that never made their way onto shelves or into our stomachs.
