Two couples on a two week road-trip were traveling from Deadwood, SD to Scottsbluff, NE. This made a perfect stop to stretch our legs. It is very interesting to see the artistic design. We appreciated the lady in the gift shop sharing information on how this came about. We are visiting Stonehenge next fall so this will be remembered when... More

We visited as a couple and had contrasting views. I thought it was interesting...but the wife hated it.

A nice stop if you are taking Nebraska Highway 2 or U.S. Highway 385 to Fort Robinson or the Mount Rushmore area. Metal art. Scrap Sculpture call it what you will. It is a quirky fun stop if you are in the area. There is no cost to stop and tour the attraction but they will appreciate it if you... More

If you happen to find yourself in Alliance Nebraska, then Carhenge has all the cheerful eccentricity that a Stongehenge made of scrap cars should have. However it's hard to imagine anyone being occupied for long, so the distance worth travelling specially to see it isn't great.

Carhenge, a car version of Stonehenge, is a quirky attraction that's fun to see if you're in the area. We went around 7:30 pm, so there was no gift shop open, but we just pulled up and walked around. Our teenage son loved it for the photo ops.

I stopped by while in Alliance. Some good photo ops, but nothing I would go out of my way for. If you're into unusual art, you might enjoy it.

Carhenge offers unique take on a European classic attraction. Nebraska artist Jim Reinders created the attraction as a tribute to his father. It is based on England’s Stonehenge, only using old cars painted gray instead of large rocks. Carhenge was voted the third quirkiest attraction in the United States by USA Today (http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-quirky-landmark/). Reinders used 38 cars to make the... More

A replica of Stonehenge made from cars is certainly one of the more unusual things you're likely to see and this roadside attraction is well worth a stop if you're anywhere nearby. It's well signposted from the town of Alliance and there's a gift shop there which also has quite a lot of good information on the history of the... More

This is a great roadside oddity! Though donations are accepted, it is free. There is a gift shop with a restroom located on the grounds as well. It was a great place to stop and stretch our legs after a long day of driving. Carhenge is well-maintained and the grounds are very clean. The volunteers do a great job!
