Pennsylvania holds a special place in the hearts of many Americans. The declaration of independence was signed here, the Liberty Bell sounded here and frankly some of the nation’s best bizarre roadside attractions make their home here.
1. Drive-Thru Strip Club: Congruity, Pennsylvania
American’s love their cars and no where is that more evident than the spread of its drive thru culture. America’s got drive thru restaurants, drive thru banks, drive thru wedding chapels, heck they’ve even got drive thru trees. The next logical step in their drive thru evolution then, could be none other than the drive thru strip club.
For $10 a minute, you can pull your vehicle up to the diamond shaped peephole and watch the action unfold inside. For faster service, remember to have your payment ready at the window.
If you want to see things get really interesting, try ordering a private dance. And trust us, you don’t want fries with that.
2. Insane Fishpond: Linesville, Pennsylvania
Now you don’t have to be Jesus to walk across water. The volume of fish flapping about in this Pennsylvania spillway is so heavy; you could practically walk across their bobbing heads to the other side.
Some 400,000 tourists every year stop by to feed the fish modern marine miracle, dishing out some 2.4 lbs of bread each to the now carb addicted carp. In fact, the only Pennsylvania attraction that sees more visitors each year is the Liberty Bell.
While no human has yet to complete the fish head water crossing, the spillway has deservedly earned the nickname, “the place where the ducks walk on the fish”. And we say with a little balance, speed and Devine intervention you can make the crossing too. Hallelujah!
3. Big Mac Museum: North Huntington, Pennsylvania
Pay homage to the world’s favourite double burger, just miles from the site of its original birthplace. Gawk at the original Big Mac sauce gun, observe the evolution of the burgers packaging through history, and admire the colourful wallpaper adorned with the words of the legendary Big Mac mantra (Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun). It’s truly some of Ronald’s greatest work.
4. Mutter Museum: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Do grotesquely enlarged colons turn you on? Does the site of Grover Cleveland’s facial tumour get you hot? Do thoughts of John Wilkes Booth’s thorax drive you wild? Did you answer yes to any of the above? Then this place is just your fix.
The mutter museum features one of the world’s largest collections of medical monstrosities, ranging from twins joined at the liver, humans turned into soap and downright jaw dropping cases of testicular elephantitis. And here you are complaining about your headache.
5. Worlds Largest Hamburger Joint: Clearfield, Pennsylvania
Alas, we’ve finally found the answer to the question, where’s the beef? It’s right here at Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub in rural Pennsylvania; hundreds and hundreds of pounds of it.
Order up a quarter pounder here and the only thing you’re likely to get in return is a laugh. Here burgers are built by the pound, including patties weighing in at 1, 2, 9 and a heart stopping 11 pounds. Denny’s (not to be confused with “Denny’s”) gargantuan 15LB burger for two (more like for two dozen), includes some 4 Lbs of lettuce, tomatoes cheese onions and sauce. Quadruple bypass sold separately.
