Plan a road trip this month and you can keep summer from screeching to a halt. Beach bottlenecks are history. Leaf freaks are a month away. Even if gas prices are still a bear youve got space to check out the eclectic, ultra-local attractions that somehow get passed by in July.
Here, in no particular order, are eight weird roadside monoliths my favorites that are enormous enough to make you grab for your camera and e-mail photos to friends. There are plenty more oddities out there, large and small, so load up the minivan and create your own list.
