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.

One of the loveliest places in America to enjoy the fine art of taking tea, is in a Michigan Tea Room. Located throughout the state, in the regional area of Detroit, Lansing, and the Upper Peninsula, a Tea Room in Michigan can be as varied as the clothes we wear to them!

Some Tea Rooms boast specialty items on their menu, conducive to their particular region. Michigan Cherry Scones are a wonderful find in Tea Rooms around the State! You will also find many interesting "tea related" gift items in many of these tiny, but traditional places. Look for a Tea Room that sells the same scone mix they use from their selected menu items. Ivita Products are a real find in Michigan as they hail from California and are rare in the Great Lakes State area, so look for their many tea related items including a variety of scone mixes, muffin mixes, lemon or lime curd and their imported English Clotted Crème.

Call your nearest Tea Room and ask about accommodating your group. Whether it is a Bridal Shower, a Baby Shower, or a Special Birthday, the Tea Room can create an experience your guests will never forget. Seating capacity is foremost to your guest list, so be sure the Tea Room size can accommodate your group.
