In search of America's most bizarre attractions, we journey from Illinois and across the Midwest to Michigan, epicentre of America's industrial heartland. Amidst the vast clutter of mundane car museums and tire factories, we discover four seriously strange roadside attractions, worthy of your visitation:

1. Pet Casket Factory Tours: Gladstone, Michigan

Choose the wrong coffin for your cat or dog and you could seriously compromise the quality of their afterlife. Chose the right one however, and they'll be happily sniffing crotches and scratching furniture in pet heaven for eternity.

If you're clueless about how to pick the right resting place for your pet, a visit to Gladstone's Pet Casket Factory is a must. Here you'll learn the inns and outs of pet coffin selection, and gain first hand insight into the manufacturing process.

4. World Champion Cow Grave At An Insane Asylum: Traverse City, Michigan

During her lifetime, Colantha the cow pumped out more milk than any other bovine on record. Her milk filled thousands of glasses, graced countless cereal bowls, and helped bake cookies for families across the nation.

How better then to honour this world record setting cow then by laying her to rest in a grave site set on grounds of Michigan's larges insane asylum (now defunct). If the story of Colantha's life and death doesn't put you in a melancholy mood, the decaying brick, chained porches, and bared windows of the surrounding institution certainly will.

Those first crucial days will be the cornerstone of which the foundation of your married life builds from. Why let numbers and money force you to miss out on this beautiful time of your life. With these tips planning your honeymoon should become less stressful and more affordable.

Michigan Honeymoon Ideas

Camping is an often overlooked, but considered an affordable honeymoon option in Michigan. Fifty years ago the Great Lakes of Michigan was one of the top camping destinations in the U.S. and still to this day has some of the top hunting locales year round. The intimacy of camping will help you and your spouse to further strengthen your bond and reconnect with the things that first drew you together. Bringing pillows and blankets can make it feel as if you are sleeping in your own bed. If camping in a tent does not appeal to you there are hundreds of cabins to choose from. Some are located lake side on the beach, while others are in the middle of the woods. No matter what you prefer, there is a location for you. The cost of renting a site at a state or national park will be about ten to twenty dollars a night. A few popular places include Oakgrove Resort Campground in Holland Michigan and Riverview Campground in Sterling Michigan. You can save further by packing and preparing your own meals but it is not a requirement. You can still go out to a fancy restaurant for a romantic dinner with a little bit of planning, also.

Traveling in the off season can also help you to save money in the long run. If you travel to your destination at a time when the majority of tourist do not travel then it is considered off-peak season. Discounts are offered to persuade travelers to travel at certain times of the year. Prices are slashed by twenty five percent or more in comparison to the peak travel season. Using one or more of these tips should allow you to still have a memorable honeymoon in Michigan without breaking the bank.
