Description:
A Roadside Attraction is an unusual, often oversized or comical tourist attraction along side the road and is used by a community or area to present some information or history of the community or area; sometimes even just a mascot. Add the Roadside Attraction you have found in your travels across the country or around the world. This category is NOT for general tourist locations that would better fit in the Official Local Tourism Attractions category
Expanded Description:

Waymarks that can be placed in this category should be large and interesting roadside attractions you have come across in traveling around the world, across the country, or even in your hometown.

A website listing an excellent collection of roadside attractions for Canada is Large Canadian Roadside Attractions, the list is very large and building all the time.

Also there is an excellent web site for roadside attractions in the U.S. Roadside America.

Here's a few other roadside related websites that may be of additional assistance. List of World's Largest Roadside Attractions; Atlas Obscura; Legends of America; 79 Weird Roadside Attractions Road Trip; RoadTrip America; Roadsidepeek; 22 of the World’s Most Bizarre Tourist Attractions

Please note that tourist sites such as Trip Advisor or general tourist information sites (which commonly include attractions, food, lodging and history of the area) are NOT for unusual Roadside Attractions in various country's and are thus NOT allowed. Perhaps your discoveries should go in Official Local Tourism Attractions.

We'll be adding more as they're found. In fact, if you know of any other roadside attractions related website not already listed here, let us know, we'll be glad to add it to our list. Thanks, & enjoy!

Instructions for Posting a Roadside Attractions Waymark:

New postings to this category should be attractions that appear on one of the websites listed above. Trip Advisor or general tourist information sites are NOT considered a Roadside Attraction website. Roadside Attractions are unusual, often comical, and the basic goal is to get tourists to stop and visit.

When posting a new waymark to this category, please include as much information as you can of why the large Roadside Attraction is there. Provide the GPS coordinates of the Roadside Attraction. A minimum of two distinct photos taken personally by you are required. Additional photos are always appreciated! Also don't forget to let everyone know what you think of the roadside attractions. After all a trip is not only about the destination but also about the journey.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
When posting a new log for a waymark, please include a picture if there isn't one included on the original posting. Add your thoughts about the roadside attraction and let everyone know if it is worth while stopping to see.
