This Web site was just too fun to pass up! You just can’t resist looking at those gargantuan roadside attractions when you drive past them, now can you? Well, I certainly can’t and I’m not going to pass them up on the Internet either! On the main page, you’ll be able to click on the image of the pineapple, fish or buffalo. They give you nice preview of what you’re about to see!
To get started browsing through these mammoth creations, you need to click Search. This will provide you with several ways of browsing.
You can search by keyword, list of attractions by name (choose a letter from the alphabet), by category, by state, by Canadian province, by country or you can even browse through them all at once.
If you do choose to view them all at once, allow for an extended load time, as it is a big file. But, to be honest, it’s my favorite way to check them out. When it’s done loading, it will come up as a table and for each one, they have a photo of it. Just click the link to be taken to that attraction’s page.
On the attraction’s page, you will learn, at the very least, where it is located and when it was built. If you’re lucky, the attraction you picked will have a background story as well. For example, check out the listing Alligator.
News and Notes – Here you will learn of the latest happenings in the world of these large attractions. From the 50th anniversary of the catsup bottle to the donation of a huge fire hydrant, it’s all very interesting to check out!
Oh, and don’t forget to check out the Gallery of Huge Beings. It’s set up as a thumbnail gallery and it is divided up by location. Just scroll down the page and click the thumbnail you’d like to see larger. I, of course, checked out Jacques from Marblehead, Ohio.
I hope you enjoyed this jaunt into the universe of giant roadside attractions. I know I did. It is pretty neat and it’s a really fun way to pass some time!
