Take a break from a long road trip and visit one of the exciting roadside attractions that travelandleisure.com highlights on their website. Some of the memorable and inspiring attractions include:
- Wyoming Dinosaur Center in Thermopolis, WY – This dinosaur graveyard is home to one of the richest collections of fossilized remains in the world. Its popular “Dig for a Day” program enables travelers to become amateur paleontologists and look for 150 million-year-old fossils
- Maya Lin’s Wave Field in Mountainville, NY – In an abandoned quarry an hour north of New York City, rows of undulating grassy hillocks resemble the swells and peaks of the sea. This six-acre outdoor sculpture was designed by Maya Lin, best known for the Vietnam Veterans’ memorial in Washington, D.C., and is the newest permanent addition to the Storm King outdoor art center.
- Graceland in Memphis, TN – Elvis Presley’s Graceland is the premier rock-and-roll pilgrimage and an unavoidable roadside stop, a shrine to the King and his indulgences.
