The alleged home of a mysterious secret society, the Gimghoul castle is a neat place to see in person, though don't expect to get in - it's for members only.

Hilarious photo op if you're in the area, but nothing to go out of your way to see. Unless, of course, you're headed to the Angus Barn, which is where this fun little machine is located. The food is on the pricy side, but damn worth it.

One of the neatest locations from American urban legends... and one that holds up. If you visit, be sure to bring a regular old compass with you so you can watch it spin wildly in the center of the Tramping Grounds. Some people complain about being sick in the middle, just something to be aware of.

Very cool museum filled with stuff exclusively from the local area. Definitely call ahead for hours, as they can fluctuate.

Gorgeous, well-curated art museum with over 40 different galleries, but it's absolutely worth calling ahead to see what kinds of rotating exhibits are going on.

Really cool museum if you're a kid. If you're an adult, not so much... this isn't the kind of place you can just stroll into without a kid and not get dirty looks. Don't ask me how I know.

Yep. This exists. It's pretty cool if you're into Ava Gardner, but if you're visiting and you aren't into her, then I'm going to guess you're a boyfriend being dragged along.

A great nature preserve doing great things for the area, but the best way to visit is to call and schedule a horse drawn carriage ride through the property. It's cheap, supports the project, and it's fun!

Beautiful old building with a great courtyard for a stroll. Be sure to pop inside and look at the absolutely stunning interior.

Really wonderful place doing fantastic things for rescued animals. You'll be able to get right up close to all kinds of big cats, including lions and tigers, as well as other animals like wolves and lemurs.

This place is absolutely worth a visit, not just because it's a great place to see some nature, but because they get no federal funding, so they rely on their visitors and donations to get by. Great place.
