We were traveling from Dallas, TX and Jackson, Wyoming when we lost the cellular signal for my iPad in Nebraska and got hopelessly lost. (Note to self, download maps to hard drive next time.) We stopped to get directions at a manned rest stop and the attendant suggested we detour over to Alliance to see Carhnenge. I am SO glad... More

In newer pictures it seemed a little Dilapidated. Maybe through storms and the high winds in NE but I remember it as a really cool place to visit as an art vision. It had a Christo feel if he and Jeanne-Claude made permanent art like he has spoken about with oil barrels (1980's Ft. Collins, CO) this would be the... More

My wife and I briefly stopped at Carhenge in March. It was officially closed but the owners were there getting the place ready to open later in the spring, and they cheerfully let roam the grounds for 20 minutes. I loved the back story of how it was created, the local opposition, and finally acceptance. It's a bit of fun... More

Some trade in their old cars for a newer model. Others paint them gray and try to replicate England's Stonehenge. Go figure! This place is the brain child of the son of a Nebraskan rancher, who went to England, studied Art & Stonehenge and came back decided to replicate it. He gathered family members, armed them with tools, beer and... More

This is an exact replica of Stonehenge but then made out of cars. Not far from the main road so it's a good place to stop your drive and have a little wonder around. Take care, very warm in the summer and not much shade. Small shop that sells the usual tourist items and drinks. Very nice people though.

If you are already driving to or from Mt. Rushmore or WY then you should stop. It has Carhenge a bunch of other car art pieces. The staff is friendly and the bathrooms clean. It is one of those places that most people are glad they experienced but other will call it a waste of time. Four out of five... More

Having just returned from the real Stonehenge we just had to make this stop as we wandered through rural Nebraska. Very good rendition of a cultural icon using classic autos. Nice friendly staff and fun gift shop. Definitely worth the few extra mile detour as you travel I-80.

If you're into quirky, weird, or wacky, then Carhenge is a must-see! I stopped years ago on my way to Mt Rushmore, and wasn't disappointed in the off-beat steel structures. Stop there on your way to The World's Largest Ball of Twine in Cawker City, KS!! Who needs the normal tourist traps when you've got places like these to go?... More

Great seeing what creative Nebraskans get up to when they have time on their hands. Been twice and would go again. You either like quirky artwork in the middle of nowhere (no offense, Alliance) or you don't. If so, go and prepare to be delighted. If not, don't go.

It's an American classic. Absolutely worth the detour; and if you come in the evening in moonlight ... One of the (unexpected) highlights on a cross-country drive.
