Illinois, Kentucky, and Indiana all have some great tourist attractions that you can visit, but these have been named as the weirdest.

When you think of tourist attractions to see in Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky, there are a few that might come to mind. In Illinois, you may think of the Willis Tower Skydeck, Wrigley Field, Navy Pier, and more hotspots scattered throughout the state. When it comes to Indiana, you might think of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, Indiana Dunes, and Holiday World. Kentucky also has a lot of great tourist attractions, such as Churchill Downs, Rupp Arena, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, Mammoth Cave National Park, and Kentucky Lake/Lake Barkley. These are all great places to visit, but none of them would be considered "weird".

That being said, there are some weird attractions scattered all throughout the United States, including Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky. Buzzfeed created a list of the weirdest tourist attractions in each state. The list does have a lot of weird, strange, and unique attractions that perhaps, you never have heard of before. What was named as the weirdest tourist attraction in Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky?

Okay, I don't find this one weird at all. In fact, I think this is pretty cool. Cave City, Kentucky is home to Dinosaur World. Here, you can roam the park filled with hundreds of life-sized dinosaurs in a natural setting. Buzzfeed makes a good point by saying:

It's not <i>quite</i> as high tech as Jurassic Park, but maybe that's for the best.
