Weirdest Places in Idaho to Visit on Your Next RV Vacation
There’s a lot you can do when you rent an RV from Outdoorsy in Boise, Idaho. You can visit an RV resort, explore the city, or take in some of the state’s natural wonders. But, that’s not all you can do.
The traditional American road trip has always included strange pit stops along the way. From the world’s biggest this to the world’s strangest that, there are plenty of natural and man-made wonders to check out that are a little off the beaten path.
Here are a few of the weirdest places in Idaho that are worth a visit the next time you hop in your RV for a road trip.
The Museum of Clean
The Museum of Clean is just what it sounds like. It is a museum that is dedicated to cleaning materials!
You won’t be surprised to find a collection of vintage vacuum cleaners and brooms, but this museum has a lot more to offer. Everything in the museum is themed for cleaning. That means paintings, statues, and more can be found within the museum’s walls. It’s the only one like it in the country!
If you’re looking for a disorientating experience, check out Gravity Hill. A simple drive up and down the hill won’t suffice. Instead, you have to put your car in neutral. When you do, you’ll amazingly find yourself rolling up hill!
What could be causing this to happen? Many people guess magnets, or maybe a glitch in spacetime. The answer is much simpler.
It is an optical illusion.
But, just because you aren’t actually rolling up hill doesn’t make this spot any less amazing to check out!
Oasis Bordello Museum
There’s no question that one of the strangest places to visit in all of Idaho is the Oasis Bordello Museum. This one-time brothel turned museum is quirky, weird, and historic. It allows you to explore the world’s oldest profession in a tasteful, and slightly funny, way.
However, it’s a safe idea to leave the kids at home if you’re planning to stop here.
The Sluice Box
What is the Sluice Box? That’s a great question that doesn’t really have a clear answer.
When looking at it from the outside, it looks like you’re getting ready to enter the house of a hoarder. But, the truth makes this place much cooler than that.
The Sluice Box is:
• An antique shop
• A historic monument
• A museum
No other antique shop compares to the experience you’ll have at the Sluice Box. Especially since the upstairs is rumored to be haunted. After all, this is a historic landmark of sorts, dating all the way back to when it was opened in the 1970’s.
Vacations don’t always have to be about sitting on the beach or hiking through the forest. A vacation is whatever you want it to be, and it can be weird in a good way when you visit the Idaho attractions on this list.
