These 10 Unique Attractions In Kansas Are An Absolute Must-Visit
Is it just me, or does Kansas seem to be the roadside attraction capital of the world?! From trucks (purposely) cemented into the ground, to political sculptures and the Land of Oz, Kansas has a must visit roadside attraction for every taste! Here are 10 of these unique attractions that everyone needs to visit at least once.
1.) Garden of Eden (Lucas)
Built by the late S.P. Dinsmoor, the Garden of Eden is considered to be the most unique and bizarre sculpture garden in the world with its 40-foot tall cement trees and figures!
2.) Atomic Cannon (Junction City)
One of 8 remaining atomic cannons in the United States, "Atomic Annie" sits atop a steep hill in Junction City's Freedom Park.
3.) World's Largest Ball of Twine (Cawker City)
Kitschy (and I mean that in the best way possible)!
4.) Dorothy's House & Land of Oz (Liberal)
Toto, I have a feeling we aren't in Kansas anymore...
5.) M.T. Liggett's Political Sculptures (Mullinville)
Never politically correct; always entertaining.
6.) Big Brutus (West Mineral)
The world's second largest electric shovel is a whopping 160 feet tall and weighs 11 million pounds!
7.) Subterra Castle: Missile Silo Home (Dover)
Why build a castle out of an old missile silo? Edward and Dianna Peden ask, "why not?"
8.) World's Largest Easel (Goodland)
The gigantic Van Gogh "Sunflower" painting measures 32x24 feet and can be seen from I-70 (but you gotta stop to get a selfie)!
9.) Rock City (Minneapolis)
Rock City (Chick) contains 3 rock clusters and more than 200 spherical boulders.
10.) The Lessman Farm & Truckhenge (Topeka)
The bizarre grassroots art exhibit is a collection of antique trucks decorated in political quotes and cemented into the ground with 23 tons of concrete.
