Regent, North Dakota: Enchanted Highway
Gary Greff's towering, fanciful metal sculptures appear every few miles along one empty road in the middle of nowhere -- soon to become somewhere if enough people come to look. Roadsideamerica.com Report...
Visitor Tips and News About Enchanted Highway
Crawling all over them isn't encouraged per se, but fence-hopping is part of the roadside attraction spirit. Right?[Darren Collins, 09/02/2011]
Gary Greff, builder of giant sculptures along The Enchanted Highway, plans to build his biggest yet: the World's Largest Motorcycle, 102 feet long and 42 feet tall (that's as long as a Blue Whale and twice the height of an average Muffler Man). Gary says he'll park it right in downtown Regent, and hopes to unveil it by the summer of 2012, in time for the annual Sturgis Rally in neighboring South Dakota.
And busy Gary is still on schedule to open his Enchanted Castle Motel this Fall, which is where he hopes people will stay who drive all the way to Regent to see his giant motorcycle and other sculptures.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 02/28/2011]
Enchanted Highway visionary Gary Greff has purchased an empty school in town and announced that he'll transform into "The Castle" by Fall 2011. It will be a 20-room motel -- convenient for folks who drive out to Regent to see Gary's giant sculptures -- and its exterior and public spaces will be refitted with rocks to make it look like a medieval fortress.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 11/19/2010]
My wife thought the Enchanted Highway's Tin Family was adorable. At the Enchanted Highway gift shop in Regent, we bought several items, including tiny little recreations of the Tin Family.
The wind sculptures weren't moving (maybe a work in process?) but looked great, and we could imagine how cool they'll be when operating.[Dale & Virginia Divers, 09/29/2010]
