A Quick History of Weird Roadside Attractions

In 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a law that launched the Public Roads Administration, which is known as the Federal Highway Administration today [1]. Before this, many communities had their own roadways that did not follow standardized sizes or regulations. This made driving long distances across the country much more difficult than it is today. It wasn’t until 1956 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation that funded the construction of this U.S. Interstate Highway System that construction really kicked off. Route 66 was one of the popular early interstate systems constructed, allowing for faster and more reliable travel between states [2].

As highways were popping up, families on vacation set out on the open road. These families, excited to explore the country, had the potential to offer big business to the communities they drove through. Route 66 was a big part of the development of roadside kitschy attractions and interesting stops to visit while heading to the desired destination. The highway stretches through many rural areas of the country and it brought newfound business opportunities when it was first constructed [3].

With more folks on the road, businesses were looking to get a piece of the pie. Roadside attractions were a natural development, bringing eye-catching statues, sights, and attractions that would encourage families to stop, explore, and spend some of their money. As businesses saw success with their roadside attractions, more were built over the years.

Even today, roadside attractions are big business in every state. Many of these attractions are a callback to those years ago where cars of the 1950s and 60s dominated the roadways, with paper maps that brought vacationers to their destinations. Today, roadside attractions new and old are easily found with GPS and a little lookout for signs or advertisements on the road. If you’re looking for a fun spot to stop on your next RV road trip, we invite you to explore some of the weirdest roadside attractions the American open road has to offer.

The area was renovated into a tourist attraction that continues to delight visitors.
