Kitschiest Roadside Attractions in America

Sometimes the journey is the destination, as our kitschy roadside attractions prove.

Da Yoopers Tourist Trap, Ishpeming, MI

5 of 36

For the uninitiated, a Yooper is someone who lives in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (the U.P.), which is covered in snow nearly half the year. Da Yoopers Tourist Trap is a celebration of hinterland innovations, including Big Ernie, the world’s largest working rifle (35 feet and 4,000 pounds) and Da Two-Holer Outhouse. Don’t leave without a tchotchke from the gift shop—everything from bullet-hole stickers (which promise to “impress the babes”) to belly-button lint brushes. —Jessica Su
