This is a great road trip planner resource for your next road trip. I know 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.

LARGEST TRUCK STOP

Walcott, IA

Largest Truck StopI don’t know about you, but I always wonder how truck stops come up with all of their recipes. Now you can know too! This is a great stop to note on your road trip planner. Plus, you can grab a bite to eat, fill up the car with gas and stretch your legs.

Just in case you need a refresher of the awesomeness that is Captain Kirk…I guess instead of a road trip planner, Captain Kirk would have used a space trip planner 😉

CARHENGE

Alliance, NE

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.

  1. 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.
