Almost every Michigan city, town, village, burg, and community has something totally unique, and not found anywhere else.

Statues are erected to the most unusual things: from food, humans doing who-knows-what, animals doing even worse stuff, to something that is completely off the wall.

Museums abound that are dedicated to the most unusual things. There are exhibits, displays, little strange shops with the purpose to surprise, monuments and dedications to things that make you wonder “why?”
