You'll find the world's largest Dalmatian Fire Hydrant in Texas, a house covered in beer cans, and a giant blue crab.

There's also a hippo statue collection, a mini Eiffel Tower with a cowboy twist, and a gigantic roadrunner statue.

You can visit a unique museum, in-the-losest bowel sense, dedicated to toilet seats, explore a mansion inspired by a melodramatic and over-the-top/ famous TV show, and gaze confusingly at a three-story structure built from what most people would consider as, "Trash."

New Mexico's roadside attractions are equally crazy.

They include the world's largest pistachio nut, a giant chili pepper, and a cave once used by a famous outlaw.

There's a massive roadrunner sculpture made from recycled materials, an enormous astronomical observatory Jodie Foster was in contact with, and a ridiculous, potentially scary, yet very fun road that plays music when you drive over it.

All of these attractions provide some pretty cool photo opportunities for all the influencers, or NPCs that enjoy nice pics and might offer a few interesting vibes with the local culture and history.

Both states can boast attractions that are not just stops on a road trip but destinations in their own right, each being insane and not normal yet offering a unique experience to those who have wanderlust.

Whether you're a local or a traveler, these roadside attractions will add fun, weirdness, and a touch of the unexpected to your trip.
