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!

Carhenge, as the name suggests, is a miniaturized version of Stonehenge constructed from old hoopdie cars and trucks. What else can I say? You will laugh at the extent to which human creativity can go.

Nice little stop if your in the area, and its free. Its interesting how its all arranged. I would have liked to see more info on the real Stonhenge so you could compare the two in a way. It makes you wonder about the real Stonhenge in England. This is a fun little road trip stop, it doesn't take long... More

If you can't make it to England to see Stonehenge, and you are in western Nebraska, see Carhenge. It's free and won't take very long. Fun place to take some crazy pictures. You can get up close to all the cars. Great opportunity to stretch the legs and then tell the folks back home that you have been to Carhenge.... More

This is the third trip I've made to Carhenge. The addition of the Pit Stop snack and souvenir shop is a nice touch. It is good to be able to get out of the heat, humidity, and wind at this attraction for a short time. I also like the "car art" surrounding the replica of Stonehenge. This is definitely worth...

Worth a stop! Very cool! Clean restrooms!! Great photo opportunity. Sure to be as iconic as Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo. Nice store.

Hmmm, what to say, hmmm. Souvenir shop with restroom. You just wandered around on your own, you can go right up to the cars and touch them. Sadly people have been tagging the cars. This doesn't effect the 'henge' from afar but when you are up close it is distracting, Hope they repaint it eventually. They have a signature car... More

or Nebraska could now be sued by England! Jim Reinders created Carhenge in 1987, replicating the 38-stone structures of Stonehenge with equal-sized vintage cars. This is a must stop for all those who find enjoyment in experiencing roadside America at its most creative. There is no fee to access this attraction. A gift shop called Pitstop Gift Shop is located... More

Being on a tight budget, I'm always looking for free activities and attractions. This was unique, odd, and fun. It gave the kids a time to get out and stretch their legs, running around taking pictures and just having plain old fun. We were on our way to Mt. Rushmore so we had to add this as a side trip....
