We hear an awful lot about Texas here in the US. And why wouldn’t we? Texas has a lot of beautiful tourist attractions and stunning landscapes. To be specific, you will see several small towns, hills, and prairies as you explore the unique landscape of this state. In fact, many people have been flocking to move to the various cities in Texas recently. It’s become a pretty sought-after place to settle down. After all, Quincy Morris is from there (and if you got that reference, know that I admire you.) Aside from the charm that comes with Texas, you will also notice some weird attractions along the road. In fact, this state has some very unusual places to investigate. To give you a better view, here are some of the strangest places you can visit in Texas.
1. Cadillac Ranch
Open to the public at all hours in Amarillo, Texas, The Cadillac Ranch has attracted a lot of tourists and not only because of its enticing name. Visitors from all over the country come see this unique sight because of its eerie beauty. To be specific, you will see 10 Cadillacs that are buried in and sticking out of the ground. The cars used have different models, and each car represents the evolution of the car’s tail fins. Most of you may find this place weird, but it will surely amaze you with its unique form of beauty at sunset.
2. The Museum of Weird
One of the strangest places you can visit in Texas is The Museum of Weird. In fact, the museum claims it is, in fact, “America’s Strangest Attraction”. As its name implies, you will see a lot of unusual and bizarre things in this musuem. For instance, the museum displays strange creatures, like zombies, shrunken heads, mummies, the Fiji mermaid, and many more. Aside from that, this museum also has a “creature in ice,” which you can get to know when you visit this strange tourist attraction.
3. Munster Mansion
The Munster Mansion should be on your list if you’re a fan of the hit 60s sitcom The Munsters. This house has recreated every room from the tv show after hours and hours of re-watching old tapes. In fact, a lot of items in the mansion are from the sitcom, itself! While some are just specific matches. It’s considered living art, as it is constantly being worked on and updated. This incredible location is open for private tours as well as monthly murder mystery events! I don’t know about you, but I’m just dying to check this one out, now!
4. Cathedral of Junk
Aside from those unusual places, you can also visit the Cathedral of Junk. In this place, you will see about 60 tons of used household items and other kinds of junk. Some of you may think that these discarded items are worthless; however, Vince Hannemann turned these used materials into works of art… literally.
All in all, these are some of the strangest places you can visit in Texas. As presented, most of these tourist attractions are weird, but they will make your trip remarkable. Remember, these places are beautiful despite being strange. They have, shall we say, a strange beauty about them.
