My recent 26 States in 26×2 Days trip brought me to Strange Attractions Maine to Alabama. While I separated them into five separate posts, I’ll summarize them here with links to the separate posts. Do you want to stop at some of them someday? So, go for it. Most are intriguing, unique, or just plain silly! But, my favorite is Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard in Vermont. Casey IL provides a “town full” of world record “things.” Here’s a link to the entire trip.
Continue below to learn more about all the quirky attractions on the trip.

Southeastern US Quirky, strange attractions
Georgia Guidestones appeared in the early 1980s when an anonymous group funded the construction. The Guidestones present principles espoused by the group. If you look at the details, they seem to suggest they are post-apocalyptic. The founding group remains anonymous to this day. It’s not only an interesting stop; the principles provide discussions for you and your traveling companions!
The Guidestones provides another of the Strange Attractions Maine to Alabama! Along with the Guidestones, I visited the Shell-Shaped Gas Station, South of the Border, The Tree that Owns Itself, Tiny Doors of Atlanta, Britton Hill, FL, and Bamahenge! (Link coming soon.)

Classic Rock Recollection
“Strange Brew” by Cream
Kill what’s inside of you.
She’s a witch of trouble in electric blue,
In her own mad mind, she’s in love with you.
Now what you gonna do?
