Strangest Roadside Attraction In Illinois
What is the strangest roadside attraction in Illinois?
There are a couple important facts you need to know about the difference between Illinois and Chicago.
- There's Chicago and then there's the rest of Illinois.
- In Chicago, you don't dare put ketchup on a hot dog.
Knowing those things makes this Illinois top roadside attraction, even funnier.
MSN.com came up with a list, "The Strangest Roadside Attraction In Every State."
In Illinois, it's "The World's Largest Ketchup Bottle."
"This 170-foot catsup bottle is more than meets the eye. It's actually a working water tower in Collinsville and the center of a yearly festival in July."
Do you see the irony?
- It's located in Southern Illinois, nowhere near Chicago.
- Chicago is so anti-ketchup.
Just for fun, I took a look at Wisconsin.
It's "The World's Largest Fish."
"Right off US 63, you'll find the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame... inside the world's largest fiberglass fish. It's as big as a Boeing 757, making it the largest thing in Hayward, Wisconsin."
Now, that makes sense.
Those are definitely a couple of worthy stops if you're ever in those areas.
One of these days, I'm going to take a road trip to just visit fun roadside attractions. They would make great social media posts.
