ROAD TRIP PLANNER
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 odd roadside attractions. I think these fit the bill for odd roadside attractions along I-80.
LARGEST TRUCK STOP
I 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 😉

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.
This is a very, very small sampling of what is available along I-80. There are many more options on RoadsideAmerica.com like World’s Largest Covered Wagon, The Archway, A UFO Water Tower, Tree in the Rock and a Giant Head of Abraham Lincoln .
If you’d like even more ideas be sure to pick up a copy of Atlas Obscura. So much fun in those pages!
