    North Freedom, Wisconsin, home of the late Doctor Evermor’s Forevertron. Pic related. A visit can be combined with a road trip to the equally insane House on the Rock, near the town of Spring Green.

        It's an absolutely batshit tourist trap. Part grandiose architectural curiosity, part... sort of museum/art installation, monstrous in scale and questionable in style and taste. It makes no sense. In the unlikely event that you're ever in that part of the world, it's worth seeing.

    Not necessarily weird in a good way, Springfield, Massachusetts is a small postindustrial absolute shithole of a city that now has a massive casino downtown, and a ton of weed stores! Used to only have the Basketball Hall of Fame, which cuts a surrealist picture from the highway by night.

        Why? Were you visiting colleges or something?

        It’s a really weird bit of MA, because it’s half an hour or less from a lot of relatively wealthy, hyper-educated, generally very agreeable small towns, there’s just this dense, tiny urban pocket in the middle where most of the industry died a hundred years ago or more
        and nothing took its place but deprivation and heroin/fentanyl (lately; it was crack when I lived in the region as a child, twenty years ago now). Springfield isn’t even the worst example, it’s just the biggest.

            Worcester and Lowell both have similarly depressed recent histories but have been improving slightly in recent years; lots of people have ardently hoped that gambling would somehow bring revitalization to Springfield, but it seems to be something of a pipe dream so far. And honestly, Worcester is still 75% shithole. Lowell’s almost OK nowadays thanks to small businesses owned by Cambodians, but there are also Khmer gangs.

            There are actually a bunch of legitimately nice towns in the region, but Springfield isn’t one of them.

              Worcester is awful and I strongly recommend against moving there, especially if you're hoping to work in Boston. Despite the number of colleges, people are very simple and parochial there. It's also full of marijuana shops, but that seems to be most of MA now.

              If you're lucky and catch the express train, it's about an 1 hour and 20 minutes - so realistically with waiting and transportation to train, you're total commute looks like 4 hours.

              Traffic into Boston is too awful and stressful to try driving.

              What about Watertown?

                Watertown is pretty nice as I recall, but it’s not cheap. You might as well look at Somerville or Arlington while you’re at it, as COL is fairly similar and either is a bit closer to Boston.

                Somerville used to have a not-great reputation (was nicknamed Slumerville), but my brother has lived there for years and wouldn’t consider moving.

                And I agree with poster above that Worcester wouldn’t be an easily endurable commuting distance from Boston, even if it weren’t a shitheap. Springfield even less so, by a fricking lot, because there isn’t even a commuter rail connection that goes that far west.

    Tangier Island in the Chesapeake bay is really fricking weird. It's an isolated island in the middle of a large body of water. They make all their money from crabbing and fishing. Everyone on the island is a cousin. The population is 400 and declining fast. It's all white. They've been isolated so long, that you can barely understand what they're saying. There's probably only about 10-20 kids on the whole island. You think they'd be excited for visitors during tourist season, but they're honestly a little hostile. It's one of the weirdest places in the US I've ever been to. It feels like rural West Virginias on an Island

    Little Britain, PA is hardly a town and barely on the map. The locals who are Amish don't call it Little Britain but "Elim". The tiny hamlet is usually dead quiet but the Amish there are hostile and deranged. Had Amish kids pop out of the cornfields and chase us with wooden rods and throw stones at our car. A friend who knows a guy from there told me if anyone ever bothers you next time just namedrop this guy. I forgot what it is now, but it's a very normal name. The dude apparently wears a crack rock as a necklace and always has broken bones from doing dumb shit like jumping off bridges. Also the only thing open was a pizza place but no one was working there. Just weird vibes all around.

    Don't mess with the Fun Time Kidz Kare, it's some cartel child smuggling or insane bullshit. I pass it all the time, the lawn is always taken care of, there's never any children, the windows are usually blocked off but the lights are on sometimes, you can see through the paper that covers it. Every now and then there are signs of actual children, like once I saw crayon drawings on paper stuck to the windows, but you never see kids playing ever despite how maintained the playground is. It's hard to express how creepy the vibes are, not in a fun haunted way, I mean people who normally are into hanging out at the graveyard and going to see Ted Bundy's cabin and whatnot don't frick with this place because it's an active real thing.

    The place transfers ownership between random parent LLCs every few years and if you try to contact the LLC owners they're Spanish speakers who hang up on you. Once a bunch of ledditrs did an investigation thread, one going so far as to take their kid there as if they were looking to engage in the day care services (they were met with hostility and told the place was full). Deeper investigation will likely result in getting your throat slit by some cartel people.

I don't know how long it's been a widespread internet thing, I thought it was just a local thing. Maybe they aren't doing weird things there anymore? All I can tell you about current-times from driving by is: the playground yard is still freakishly maintained, and there's never any kids there. Hell, I hope there's nothing terrible happening there for the sake of the theoretical trafficked children.

      While we're on the subject of weird roadside attractions, have I got a list! (roadside aficionado here)
      Some of these are little known even among the roadside community:
      >Green Man's Tunnel - South Park, PA
      Real life faceless man was seen walking though this abandoned train tunnel every night until he died in 1985
      >Judy's Jungle in Mentor, OH

      >Da Yoopers Tourist Trap - Ishpeming, MI
      Bizarro displays of taxidermy deer and mannequins driving farm equipment
      >Haunted Theatre - Mackinac Island, MI
      Weirdest looking shit you've ever seen in a haunted house, and its run by some schizophrenic boomer freak
      >Boyett's Grove Citrus Attraction - Brooksville, FL
      Kitsch surrealism spread across different themed rooms and animal exhibits.
      >Last Resort Bar - Port Orange, FL
      stay in the motel room that Aileen Wuornos lived in while she was being an active serial killer and talk to the eccentric bikers who knew her and hang out at the dive bar.
      >Campisi's Egyptian Restaurant - Dallas, TX
      Italian restaurant still owned by the mob family who allegedly told/paid Jack Ruby to murder Oswald. Sit at the table of the dinner of infamy in which Ruby ate his last meal with the Campisi's boss hours before the shooting.
      >Paul Bunyan Land - Brainerd, MN
      Weird-ass theme park from the 50s/60s with a gigantic Paul Bunyan animatronic that talks to guests and an upside down dog thing as well as other weird shit
      >Organ Stop Pizza - Mesa, AZ
      Pizza joint with a guy playing the world's largest Wurlitzer theater organ and dancing cat puppets
      >Giant Legs of Henderson, NC
      Someone built a giant pair of women's legs out of plywood in the 80s and put a gate with text that says "reminiscing" between them
      >Holy Land USA - Waterbury, CT

        The place seems fascinating and led me into a deep dive on animatronics. But I don’t see anything written about a cult, just people pilgrimaging there either because they like FNAF or they really like Showbiz pizza as kids.

          Look up the Rockafire Mafia.
          Everything related to the preservationists and creative engineering is a massive rabbit hole.
          Its no secret that they hate each other but the madness doesn't stop there.
          Some teenage kid recently reverse engineered the masks on the animatronics to restore them but then tried to steal the originals and theres been this back and forth between him and the mafia.
          But it you go there and talk to the people who maintain the band they will talk about this kid like he's the next coming of christ and act like they owe their lives to him. The people who run the place and the regulars who hang out all the time are super eccentric characters unlike any people i've ever met before.
          They are mostly impoverished west virginia hillbilly types but completely obsessed with billy bob's and quite neurodivergent.
          For the best visit, ask for the backstage tour. It costs a little bit extra, but its 100% worth it. One of the best roadside experiences I've ever had honestly, and very strange and interesting to get a first-hand deep dive into showbiz culture.

      I was just there. It's not a bad neighborhood but not a ton to do beyond exotic ethnic restaurants and Italian stuff. Driving around the elevated train platforms is a nightmare.

    The Creation Science Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. The museum was founded by an Australian man who believes in interpreting the Book of Genesis literally, and the museum promotes the idea that the Earth is 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs were present in both the Garden of Eden and Noah’s Ark. Also, that incest in the Bible was nbd. The museum has some pretty surreal animatronics.

    The Totono O’odham reservation in southern arizona. This place gives me the creeps. You enter in through a passage and boom you encounter absolutely NOTHING for 70 miles until you reach a small trading outpost, and not much else besides a few houses. The only things you’ll see there are road kill, drunk natives walking on the side of the freeway and potentially drug/human traffickers from Mexico. That place is an anomaly in the entirety of the state of arizona but those natives have to have their own slice of land or else they’ll get uppity I guess. On the upside the drive is beautiful with grand landscapes on either side of the freeway but that’s literally the only redemptive quality of this place. Don’t go there at night.

            Top of the world, AZ. Near Miami, AZ. Went through at night but no walkers on the main road, surreal though.

            Haven't been through the backroads of a reservation, only interstate and havent seen any skinwalkers.

                not much really, its got a couple mines and has a few steep grades. It was pretty cool driving at night through there though, you really notice the light pollution from phoenix coming down from there.

    The House on the Rock inn Spring Green, Wisconsin, mentioned earlier in this thread is the most interesting place I have ever been
    >house is built on a large rock outcropping in the Driftless Area, a hilly, Rocky region of Wisconsin untouched by glaciation
    >interior of the house is almost a pastiche of Frank Lloyd Wright
    >very low, red-carpeted ceilings, fireplaces everywhere, built-in couches
    >trees growing inside, walls of stacked limestone slabs, dim lighting, blue stained glass windows
    >labyrinthine layout, three levels, orchestra pits with self-playing instruments
    >200 foot long glass room suspended over the forest

    Then you get to the "museum" part
    >400 foot long fiberglass whale fighting an equally sized octopus
    >collections of literally anything Alex Jordan wanted
    >also laid out like a labyrinth, turn one corner
    >you are in galleries self-playing orchestras, turn another corner
    >room housing the world's largest carousel, go through a pageant
    >room housing a collection of custom built fantasy calliopes and mannequins to match
    >further collections of replica armor, guns, dollhouses

    >Japanese garden outside
    >Covered catwalks running between buildings

    All of this in rural Wisconsin

    You can then stay at the nearby Don Q Inn, a hotel with themed rooms (for honeymooning), an indoor-to-outdoor pool, a large plane outside that you can go inside, and a tunnel leading from the basement to a nearby restaurant

    Also nearby is the Cave of the Mounds, a large cave that you can tour, with water pools and other cool cave features

    Then there's the Wisconsin Dells about an hour away and a National Forest two more hours north

      I just bought a house with an unfinished basement and I've made a promise to myself that the main room of it will be directly inspired by the interior design of the House on the Rock

    Southern Vermont for really creepy old colonial farmhouses and mill towns. The hills have eyes up there. The woods are very old. Go camping and hiking.

    There are a lot of paranormal sightings up there. Read about the Bennington Triangle. There are also a few Neolithic era megaliths way out in the woods. You can find them if you do a little research. No one really knows what they are, but they're tens of thousands of years old.

    For more of a weird trippy hippie stoner vibe, go visit Burlington. They have a lot of travelers up there living alternative lifestyles.

      Seconded. The meth shacks they have in southern Vermont on those winding mountain roads put anywhere else in New England to shame

      The Marble Mansion Inn at Fair Haven Vermont is an actual haunted house. Town is tiny and dead nearly all year. Breakfast is great tho the chick slaving away at her parents business could be a professional chief.

    Galveston, TX post-Ike away from the Strand and Seawall. Basically very old neighborhoods and buildings some dating back to the late 1800's which are basically a mix of ghetto hoods and generational families. Almost like a tiny New Orleans. There's been more development in the Strand area but after hurricane Ike, Galveston never truly recovered. Living in Houston my whole life I still go from time to time but you always get this sort of gloomy and doomed feeling when traveling outside of the main populated areas and often think "damn people actually live here?". A lot old rotted houses and abandoned shipyards along with civil war era cemeteries just brings a sort of sad and hopeless feeling when there.

    Nashville Indiana is pretty weird. Most of the state is flat cornfields with nothing but rednecks. Nashville is a little town in the middle of a forest where weird artsy yuppies live and sell little trinkets at their store on main street.

    In the foothills outside of Romney, WV you won't find the usual rednecks. You will find Indian building designs and a cult called the Global Country of World Peace that teaches some transcendental mediation, hippie shit, and one can only join if you are a single man. No women allowed, pol would love it!

    They absolutely don't want you to go and find out where it is if you aren't in the cult. Smack dab in the middle of nowhere.
