Top 7 Weirdest and Craziest Things in the US
Let's read on to learn more about this stunning country and its many attractions.
The United States of America is a road tripper's paradise, with its vast national parks and beautiful coastline. But there's more to it than impressive landmarks and scenic drives. To get the most out of their time in the United States, tourists need to be aware of a few peculiarities.
KnowInsiders has compiled a list of the 7 oddest things to do in the USA:

Without the oddities thrown in along the way, it wouldn't be an American road trip. Here are some of the most unusual roadside attractions in the US, ranging from kitsch diners and outdoor art exhibits to otherworldly natural wonders.
Aside from the fact that Americans are known for having a beer obsession, we simply enjoy drinking. In fact, we enjoy drinking so much that, even when we plan on drinking, what do we do beforehand? Drink. We continue to consume alcohol despite the fact that most alcoholic beverages have empty calories and that getting a beer belly is all too common.
Americans are known to consume any beverage at any time, according to Spoon University. In contrast, most other nations only serve alcohol with meals.
3.Altering Non- American Food
Although the United States has its own cuisine, when will it stop appropriating foods from other nations and cultures? An illustration of this would be the case of two white people who opened their own burrito stand in Portland only to be charged with cultural appropriation and forced to close their business.
4.Bishop Castle, Colorado
Bishop Caste is one of the strange things Loveexploring suggests. It's difficult to imagine that this intricate monument was even created by one man, let alone constructed by his hands. Over the course of six decades, Jim Bishop chiseled, embellished, and decorated the intricate, self-built stone and iron structure.
A 16-story fortress with cathedral windows and a steel dragon has grown out of what was once a one-bedroom stone cottage. It is not far from the winding Highway 165 that snakes through the heart of Colorado.
5.Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah
Between Salt Lake City and Wendover, Nevada, the 30,000 breathtaking acres of the lunar-like Bonneville Salt Flats spread out. There is nothing growing or living on the surface of the blazingly white, curling, and cracking salt pans. Along I-80, there are many different vantage points.
6.The Lone Cypress, California
Just north of charming Carmel on California's Central Coast, Pebble Beach's 17-Mile Drive is a detour from the Pacific Coast Highway that circles back to Pebble Beach.
This is not a drive to hurry through; there are stops almost every few minutes, from beaches with harbor seals to this lonely but noble-looking cypress tree, perched on a rock protruding over the ocean and covered in salt spray. Look at the most beautiful coastal drives in America.
7.Thor’s Well, Oregon
The strange things about America go beyond quirky cafes and enormous sculptures. When it comes to strangeness, the natural world can occasionally rival the human imagination. Take Thor's Well as an illustration.
The 'Drainpipe of the Pacific', it draws in water, whirls it around, and then spurts it out with maximum drama. It can be seen from a safe distance from the Cook's Chasm parking lot, which is located off US 101 that follows the coast. These are the world's most enchanted locations.
