Southern California

Bottle Tree Ranch

Bottletree Ranch 19

You will appreciate here in the city the bottle tree ranch  which is the creation of one man. You will appreciate its photogenic appeal as well.

It is interesting to note here the “trees” being made of metal with bottles as the leaves, a super cool spot as well.

Unofficial Center of the World

Center of the World-7

Almost on the border of both Mexico and Arizona, the Center of the World is one of those roadside attractions that has everything. Some of the things you will see here are an actual piece of the Eifel Tower, a marker for the unofficial center of the world, a church and a whole bunch of murals.

Charlie Brown Farms

You will find the roadside shop having in it a lot of things like ostrich eggs, the worlds largest beef jerky and tons of crazy pieces of art while there. Just go through and enjoy this store.

Desert Christ Park

Desert Christ Park 15

A park in the desert that was set up by a local church and that includes a whole bunch ofplaster sculptures from different events in Jesus life on Earth. You can even put yourself into a plaster sculpture of the last supper.

Salvation Mountain

salvation mountain

A mountain painted and designed to tell the world of God’s love. This is one of my favorite stops in all of California and a place you will not soon forget.

Central California

Bravo Farms

Bravo Farms 9

Located on both the 5 and 99 freeways, this spot has a little bit of everything for the weary traveler. Including everything from food and drinks to the worlds famous 7 story treehouse and art.

Bubblegum Alley

Bubblegum Alley Up Close

In downtown San Luis Obispo this alley is covered in gum that has been added by locals and tourists for decades. If you are interested you can even purchase a piece of gum from a nearby dispenser and add your own.

Nitt Witt Ridge

Nitt Witt Ridge 39

The Hearst Castle of trash art, this house in Cambria is a great spot to take a tour of and just marvel at how intricate and over the top it is.

Underground Gardens

forestiere underground gardens-14

One of the largest tourist attractions in Fresno, the underground gardens were created by one man over the course of a few decades. You can still tour a few acres to this day and it gives you a great way to escape the Fresno heat.

Whoa Nellie Deli

Whoa Nellie Deli-1

While this spot is technically just a gas station, anyone who has been will tell you it is a lot more than that. The gas station has a full restaurant that serves everything from lobster taquitos to buffalo meatloaf.

Northern California

Chandelier Drive Thru Tree

Chandelier Drive Thru Tree-7

There are three drive thru trees all along a 100 mile stretch of Highway 101. Each of them are basically the same, but how often do you get to drive through a tree? Might as well do them all, starting with the Southernmost tree which is the Chandelier Drive Thru Tree in Leggett.

Santa Cruz Mystery Spot

Mystery Spot Santa Cruz 2

The Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz is one of the most well-known spots on this list. You will often see the bumper stickers the this logo on cars up and down the state, and it really is something that you need to experience for yourself.

Toads Hollow

Toad Hollow-7

In Davis there is a “underpass” for toads to cross the road safely. Not much else to say about this but it is a unique roadside attraction for sure.

Trees of Mystery

Tree of Mystery-1

In the top left corner of the state sits this super fun roadside stop that has something for everyone. The trees here range from cathedral trees you can get married in front of to trees shaped like lightning bolts. It also has a sky tram that you can ride up to a vantage point for the area.

Winchester Mystery House


The Winchester Mystery House is the house that the Winchester family (of gun fame) lived in and that Sarah Winchester built non stop till she passed away. It has doors that don’t open, staircases that lead to brick walls and just all around crazy stuff that you have to see to believe. It is a great tour to take while in San Jose.

So there is my list of the best roadside attractions in the state. What did I leave off this list? be sure to let me know in the comments.
