Personally, I think the whole Greater Orlando area is pretty weird. There are so many cheap hotels, outlet malls, minivans and crappy buffet restaurants that it makes feel like I am in a giant Wal*Mart parking lot whenever I am there.

Hey, what about "Keep Austin Weird?" Seriously, we've got all manner of cool and trendy stores, the artsy South Congress (SoCo) area, the Hyde Park neighborhood which features some of the most interesting, eclectic and straight up weird houses I've ever seen, and to top it all of us we even have our very own village cross-dresser, Leslie Cochran...who's run for mayor three times. Austin, TX for the win.

Anyone ever been to Rapid City, South Dakota? I found it to be bizarre.

Kiryas Joel, NY. It is one of the poorest places in the US, with a per capita income of less than $5,000. Almost all of the places poorer or as poor as it are extremely small towns in the middle of nowhere that have populations of less than 1,000 people. Kiryas Joel is a town of about 20,000 people that is about 60 miles from New York City. The average size of a household there is 6 people. It has a median age of about 14. It has a population density of over 18,000 people per square mile, where only 5% of the homes are single, detached houses. Most residents are Hasidic Jews, and only 6.2% spoke English at home. It definitely seems like a weird place.

West Milford, NJ

It's weird/mysterious/beautiful all in one.

There's a street of 8 empty homes that were once all occupied until everyone on the street vanished with all their things still inside their home. They call it Demons Alley (http://www.lostdestinations.com/demons.htm)

Here's some other weird things that are around the town
