4 Seriously Strange Michigan Attractions

  • Great Places to Visit in Michigan

  • Michigan Attractions to Enjoy With Your Family During Your New Years Eve Celebration

  • Michigan Tea Rooms

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.
