Husband & I (early 30's) are on a limited budget & thought of visiting funny or unique places/ attractions on a weekend roadtrip within 4 hours or so from Chicago. I was looking for places in IL, IN, WI or MI. Like the biggest ball of string, ha ha. Something to get out of town & see what's around, maybe eat a little & shop a little too.
For example, I found House on the Rock in WI, and also the "Trollway" in IN (where there are many trolls carved out of wood all along the streets of this little town). There was also something I saw a long time ago about a tourist attraction of a little house in IN that was built into the side of a mountain that felt like you were walking lopsided, but you really weren't. Anyone know what I'm thinking of?
Any other fun places to visit?
