The House on the Rock is a roadside attraction in Wisconsin that sports a wide variety of automated instruments, themed rooms, authentic and reproduction trinkets, epochs of American culture in design and display, and serious amounts of weirdness, built, not surprisingly, on top of a gigantic rock formation on a hill. Its purpose was supposedly to spite Frank Lloyd Wright, but is regarded as one of the more interesting and unique roadside attractions in the country. I found out about it by reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods, which was amazing (you should also read his other novels... I keep trying to get AJ to read Anansi Boys), and a huge hypothetical roadtrip designed to encounter tons of bitchin' roadsides would absolutely include this one.
