America's Best Roadside Attractions

Posted: 03/16/11 12:20 PM ET

Spring is right around the corner, and with upcoming vacation planning, many Americans will opt to skip the pricey vacations and head out on the ever-popular and family bond-inducing road trip.

Nothing compliments a road trip better than the good ole roadside attraction. Often zany, sometimes corny and always entertaining, these monuments, statues and good-natured tourist traps offer relief from the monotony of the open road and make for a great vacation story for those back home.

Carhenge: Alliance, Nebraska
1 of 13
With 38 vintage American cars spray painted a stone-like grey, Nebraska's Carhenge is as close to England's real thing as can be found on this side of the Atlantic. However, there's no mystery here; artist Jim Reinders lived in England and carefully studied Stonehenge's proportions before coming back to Nebraska. This local landmark has been luring Midwestern drivers since 1987.
