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?


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.


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.
