ROAD TRIP TIME!!
ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS ALONG I-80
We try to take a break every couple of hours during long road trips and we are always looking for odd roadside attractions.
I found these roadside attractions along I-80 that make a great place to stop and stretch your legs for a few minutes. Don’t miss these roadside attractions along I-80.
I’m sharing some of the best stops from New York to San Francisco.
Roadside Attractions I-80 Pennsylvania
Get out and stretch at this boulder field in Pennsylvania.
There are different sized and shaped rocks, some up to 26-feet long in a field that was created by glacial action.
This is a great spot to get out of the car for a bit. Be sure to wear good shoes.
Located at Hwy 534, Lake Harmony, PA.
I found Bigfoot in Pennsylvania!!!! Now I can say I spotted Bigfoot. You can find him at DooLittles Station. In addition to Bigfoot, you’ll find his friend, T-Rex. Be sure to grab lunch or a treat while you’re there.
Located at 1290 Rich Hwy, DuBois, PA.
Chocolate lovers are going to love this stop. A 400-pound turtle, frog, deer and other woodland creatures. So very sweet.
Located at 496 East State St., Sharon, PA.
Roadside Attractions I-80 Ohio
This is the PERFECT stop for music fans. An entire alley of art dedicated to David Grohl plus you’ll be able to see the World’s Largest Drumsticks.
Located at Near W. Market St & Main Ave SW.
Stop for a tasty treat at this ice cream cone shaped building. How fun!
Located at 314 W. McPherson Hwy, Clyde, OH
Roadside Attractions I-80 Indiana
Seriously, a great place to run off extra energy. This 25,000 square foot facility pays tribute to America’s furry freakish sports ambassadors.
Located at 1851 Front St., Whiting, IN.
Pretty cool sculpture of fairies flying out of a massive molten pot!
Located at 440 Broadway, Gary, IN.
Roadside Attractions I-80 Iowa
Make a stop at this patriotic rock.
Located at 120th St., Menlo, IA.
This is a great stop to note on your road trip guide.
Plus, you can grab a bite to eat, fill up the car with gas and stretch your legs.
Located at 755 W. Iowa 80 Rd.I-80, Exit 284 Walcott, IA.
If you have some extra time, head over to Winterset, IA and visit the Bridges of Madison County. It’s about 20 minutes south of I-80 and worth the stop if there’s time. A fun stop to see the covered bridges.
Might want to be careful taking the scenic route off I-80. Yikes.
Located at 2401-2449 350th St, Brayton, IA 50042.
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 😉
NOTE: Riverside, IA is about 25 minutes south of I-80, but for Trekkie fans it’s worth the detour!
Step aside Stonehenge there’s a more modern take on your historic display.
Roadside Attractions I-80 Nebraska
Chimney Rock National Historic Site
A 32-foot long paper airplane replica that looks realistic. W. Adams St., Lincoln, NE
Proof that there is a museum for everything. This one is all about marbles. If you’ve lost yours by this point on the road trip with the family this might be a good place to look for them.
Need a stop in the middle of the night. This is just the spot to try your hand at duckpin bowling.
Roadside Attractions I-80 Wyoming
This used to be the smallest town in America with a population of 1, but that resident left over a decade ago and it’s now considered a ghost town.
Be sure to check out this coffee pot water tower when you stop for gas at Sapp Brothers fuel.
This home is shaped like a giant teepee with smaller teepee surrounding it. Definitely a unique home.
I-80 Service Rd., Pine Bluffs, WY
