A fun day out!

Of all the wonderfully weird roadside attractions in Michigan, this one stands out as one of the most bizarre. The Hoegh Pet Cemetery in Gladstone, Mich., offers factory tours where visitors can learn the history of pet burial and see all the steps required for making a pet casket. You can also take a tour of the pet cemetery and attend a mock pet funeral, complete with eulogy, floral arrangements and images of teary-eyed loved ones. The blurb says: "It's fun for the whole family!"

How many people attend a mock pet funeral on their holidays ? It must be really, really rainy in Michigan.

Touring across the US by car can provide countless opportunities for odd road side attractions. Everything from the world's largest pumpkin to the two headed snake can be seen. Also underground boat trips at Howe Caverns in New York. (I did that one)

Hmm. A strange one, for sure. I know that there's a pet cemetery near where I live that offers cream teas and a tour every year...not my idea of fun, anyway.
