Road trips can get pretty stale on those long stretches of highway. You need something to breathe life back into the adventure.

After the music runs out, the snacks are devoured and the conversation flags, sometimes the excitement of your final destination isn’t enough to keep you going.

Roadside attractions are the perfect antidote to the mid-trip malaise. There’s nothing like experiencing these road oddities with friends and family. You’ll have an instant conversation piece once you’re back in the car and a memory to last until your next road trip and beyond.

Once a month, we’ll give you a peek at some of these places. And just know there are hundreds of these roadside oddities out there, just waiting.

So go ahead, take that exit, venture into the tumbledown entrance and feast your eyes on the mysteries awaiting you there.

You meet all kinds of strange, um, people at roadside tourist traps.
