Summer is the perfect time of year for a road trip and if you are looking for an excuse to travel to the middle of nowhere than look no further than Carhenge in Alliance, Nebraska.

Carhenge was built in 1987 by Jim Reinders as a tribute to his father who used to have a farm on the property. The massive work replicates the ancient and famous Stonehenge site in Wiltshire, England.

But instead of mammoth stones, Reinders used 39 classic American cars and trucks to recreate the gigantic circle in Western Nebraska after studying the original structure for years in England.

It is by far one of the coolest and strangest sites I have seen aside from the Cadillac Ranch, which is located on Interstate 40, just outside of Amarillo, Texas.

The site now owned and operated by the town of Alliance, Nebraska. Carhenge is free and open to the public all year round but the summer months are usually the best time to visit.

Additional car structures can be seen on the grounds including Reinders’ “Ford Seasons” which is made out of only Fords and was inspired by Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons.”
