Which Of These Bizarre U.S. Attractions In Each State Would You Visit?

Time to book a trip to see the World's Biggest Beagle.

A Plus


Many of you may want to cross seeing the Empire State Building, visiting the Grand Canyon, and traveling across the Golden Gate Bridge off your bucket lists. The United States is filled with gorgeous natural attractions and exciting manmade ones. But it's also got some oddities. We're talking unusual statues, quirky museums, and straight-up confusing roadside attractions. 

In the northeast, you can eat delicious lobster roll in Maine before heading over to a museum filled with hundreds of umbrella covers that each have their own story or take a look at the flavors that didn't work out for Ben & Jerry's at their Flavor Graveyard before hitting the slopes in Vermont. 

Traveling to the Midwest? You'll want to stop in Wisconsin to try some of its famous cheese, but don't leave before stopping by their museum dedicated entirely to mustard. In Missouri, you've got a place that boasts about being "the only hair museum in the world [with] over 600 hair wreaths and over 2000 pieces of jewelry made of human hair."

Head south and you can browse over 1,000 creative toilet seat covers in one museum in San Antonio. And, despite what you've heard about everything being bigger in Texas, North Carolina is home to the World's Largest Chest of Drawers and Kentucky has got the World's Largest Underpants.
