Too many to number, and too many to list. But out of everything, my most favorite is still the pink elephant in Fortville, Indiana on Highway 36 which is only about 15 miles from my house: Clicky!

I love this guy!

If you are in Mercer, WI. Check out the giant loon right on Highway 51. There is also a giant loon statue in Wawa Ontario.

I use that site on every trip...to see what we will pass and if it's worth it to stop. Sometimes, we even go a few miles (or more) out of the way for a fun photo.

Too many to count - 100s of them. DW & I love a lot of that old '20s-60s roadside kitsch and won't hesitate to go out of our way for a visit.

There's more than one website devoted to America's great roadside attractions. Our favorite is, appropriately enough, Roadside America:
