Here Are The 7 Weirdest Places You Can Possibly Go In Oregon
Oregon doesn’t try to hide its quirkiness, (Portland’s motto
is “Keep Portland Weird,” after all,) and that’s all the better for us lovers of unusual places. Whether you want to check out one of Portland’s bizarre museums, sip coffee in a haunted cafe with moving tables, or visit a homemade fairytale-based theme park, here are seven weird and awesome places to check out in Oregon:
7. The Rimsky-Korsakoffee House
This dessert and coffee house in Portland is open late and has a very unique, “casually threatening” atmosphere. This haunted restaurant is full of oddities, including tables that slowly spin or rise up and down while live musicians play old tunes on a baby grand piano.
6. The Enchanted Forest
This strange and wonderful home-made theme park near Salem is based on fairytales.
5. The Vacuum Cleaner Museum
This small museum in Portland can be found in Stark's Vacuum Cleaner Sales & Service and has an enormous display of vacuum cleaners from many different eras.
4. The smallest park in the world
The smallest park in the world is in Portland, and it's only two feet in diameter. It's not the sort of park to bring a picnic to, but it's certainly weird.
3. The Hat Museum
This eccentric museum in Portland is home to an enormous number of hats of many different styles and time periods. There’s even one hat that sings!
2. Peterson Rock Garden
This amazing rock garden in Redmond was built by one man. The garden contains four acres of incredible structures, completely made out of rocks and petrified wood, including replicas of famous buildings, bridges and castles. The garden is open to the public every day and is a wonder to behold.
1. The Freakybuttrue Peculiarium
This interactive and utterly weird museum/ gallery/ emporium/ ice cream shop is full of spooky, mind-boggling curiosities that any connoisseur of weirdness has got to see for themselves.
