Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near California
While in California, you might enjoy a visit to:
A neo-classical Pagan place of worship masquerading as a municipal water facility. Actually, nobody worships here, but it just seemed kind of plausible.
Four crisp dollar bills (the machine is very finicky) get you 22 fresh eggs and a two-minute show of singing, gyrating robot chickens. Good after dark, when there's no light reflection off the window. Chicken outfits are changed frequently by the farm owner's wife.
Bronze statue of a surfer in heroic stance in front of his board, ever watchful for the next good wave. Dedicated in 1992.
Outside the Discovery Center, a complete, reconstructed 87-ft long blue whale skeleton from a carcass washed up on a nearby beach.
