Popular vacation destinations around the world are known for impressive monuments, tall buildings, tasty food, or exotic culture. The places on this list are only known because of some really strange attractions!

Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo, California is just one of those places. While its origins are sketchy at best, the 20 meter landmark was well established by the 1970's. There is still some debate as to whether there's any value in keeping the attraction. It's been an inspiration to artists and poets plus many ongoing college traditions are built around the alleyway.
