But there’s another not-to-be-missed tradition involved with traveling America’s highways and byways. Slow down long enough to visit the nation’s sometimes humorous, often bizarre and always-worth-a-photo roadside attractions.

These spots — usually silly, but sometimes quite serious — offer perfect chances to snap a selfie, or a potential family holiday card. They’re fun to spot and make great places to pull off the road, park the car and stretch your legs, all while examining just how giant that giant Adirondack chair really is up close. And even better, they’re all free.

The next time you’re off on a road trip, be sure to check out a few of these all-American gems.
