Arizona Roadside Oddities

Welcome

One of our absolute favorite things to do when we are out on the motorcycle is to find roadside oddities and attractions. We have been known to make many a u-turn while driving down the road. This page will be dedicated to any roadside attractions we have found in the state of Arizona.

It will be a constant work in progress as we will add new oddities and attractions every time we find one. Make sure you check back often for new updates. 

Better yet, subscribe to the website so you will get notified each time something new has been added to this page or the website. No worries, we will never sell or spam your email address. It will be for updates to this site only.

Big Diamond

Big Diamond

Date of Sighting: 3/10/19

City: Yuma

Comments: This giant diamond ring sits outside the Paradise Casino on the outskirts of Yuma. It is owned & Operated by the Quechan Indian Tribe.

Bridge To Nowhere

Bridge To Nowhere

Date of Sighting: 11/2/18
Location: US Highway 95, 4.5 miles north of Fortuna Rd
City: Yuma

Comments: This suspension bridge once spanned the Gila River. Now it just spans dirt…lol. It is closed to any access with signs saying it is unsafe. There are a couple of different access points but they are all dirt roads so a motorcycle might not be a smart choice for this one. You can see the bridge and the access roads from US-Hwy 95 but the roads are not marked. There was a Geocache there but we could not find it

Helicopter On A Stick

Helicopter On A Pole

Date of Sighting: 11/2/18
Location: Yuma Proving Grounds
City: Yuma

Comments: Not far from our campground (Sundance RV Park) is the Yuma Proving grounds off of US Hwy-95. The helicopter on a stick is located off of US Hwy-95. You would need to turn at Martinez Lake Rd. About 2.5 miles down Martinez Lake Rd on the left side, you will see the entrance to the Laguna Army Airfield. It is at this intersection you will see the helicopter

Stone Cabin

Stone Cabin

Date Of Sighting: 4/28/19
Location: US-95 Near Entrance For KOFA Wildlife Refuge
City: Yuma

Comments: What was once an old stagecoach stop for those going from Yuma to Quartzite now sits abandoned and wasting away. It has also served as a gas station, hamburger stand, and gift shop.

Tank Display

Tank Display

Date Of Sighting: 4/2/19
Location: Yuma Proving Grounds/ Visitor Control Center/ East Imperial Dam Rd
City: Yuma

Comments: These tanks that are on display actually sit outside the Visitor Control Center. It is free and open to anyone to see this display. If you want to see the Yuma Proving Ground Heritage Center which is actually located on a base, you will need to go inside and give them your license and registration. They will do some kind of background check which usually takes around 15 minutes and then issue you a pass. You then head down the road to the Heritage Center where you will need to show the guard at the entrance to the base your pass. The Heritage center has a few outdoor displays but most are inside. Definitely worth the trip.

Tiny Church

Tiny Church

Date of Sighting: 11/2/18
Location: US Highway 95, 5.5 miles north of Fortuna Rd
City: Yuma

Comments: A little bit north of the bridge pictured above, you will see a sign along US Hwy-95 that reads Pause Rest Worship. If you make a left on the dirt road at that sign it will lead you to the Tiny Church. We thought it was just a structure but to our surprise when we turned the doorknob, the door actually opened. Inside was 6 tiny pews!!! I actually found a Facebook page on this church. Tiny Church Facebook Page
