I’ve been thinking about taking a road trip from Michigan to Yellowstone. It would be a long drive, but I think there might be some very interesting things to see along the way.¬†We try to take a break every couple hours during long road trips and we are always looking for add roadside attractions. I think these fit the bill for odd roadside attractions along I-80.

CHIMNEY ROCK NATIONAL HISTORICAL SITE

Of these, I think Carhenge is my favorite. It’s not directly off I-80, but I think it might be worth the trip.

I was hoping to find more quirkiness along I-80. Think “largest ball of twine”, “corn palace”, etc. If you know of anything odd or weird along the I-80 or near it let me know.

    Is is weird to be sentimental about a road? I grew up on I-80. My home town in Iowa is about 15 minutes away and now I live just 15 minutes away from I-80 in Utah.

    We would travel from Iowa to Idaho to visit my grandparents every year.
