1. The "Zzyzx" Sign
2. Bob's Java Jive
3. Metaphor: The Tree of Utah
4. Movie Manor Motor Inn
5. The Geographical Center of North America
Rugby, North Dakota: This is a town that loves being the center of North America. SHHH. Don't tell it that they should have included Central America in their geographical calculation. You'll break poor Rugby's heart.
Topeka, Kansas: Truckhenge is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: trucks coming out of the ground. It's a sight for sore eyes, especially if you're driving down those long lonesome Kansas roads.
7. Barney Smith's Toilet Seat Art Museum
San Antonio, Texas: Barney Smith is a retired master plumber, and clearly he took great pride in his work. Every possible space in his humble museum that can fit a whimsically designed toilet seat fits a whimsically designed toilet seat. You're not going to see this anywhere else.
8. Home of the White Squirrels
Olney, Illinois: Albino squirrels, man. They're elusive. See if you can spot one in Olney — that's probably your best bet. Oh, and try and plan your road trip so you pass through in the fall — that's when they hold their annual squirrel count.
9. The American Museum of Magic
Marshall, Michigan: Hope you like magic, weary travelers. Because this particular museum has the largest public collection of magic artifacts.
10. Unclaimed Baggage Center
11. Monkey Jungle
Miami, Florida: Joseph DuMond is the mastermind behind this monkey-centric attraction. He set up shop in 1933, and today visitors can still walk through strategically placed cages to observe the monkeys as they run wild. Hence the whole "where humans are caged and monkeys run wild" thing.
12. The American Classic Arcade Museum
Laconia, New Hampshire: If you're looking for a pit stop to get your video game fix after hours of looking at nature, look no further than the American Classic Arcade Museum. It's got over 250 pre-1988 games, and a whole bunch more.
13. The Desert of Maine
Freeport, Maine: The Tuttle family started farming in this area in 1797, but apparently they didn't do it quite right because the soil eroded and exposed this super-weird sandy desert in the middle of lush Maine. So if you want to feel like you're in two different continents at once, we've got a suggestion.
