If you’ve hiked Yosemite and Yellowstone, roamed the streets of New York and wandered through the Smithsonian museums, it’s time to enjoy some of the country’s quirkier attractions. What about a truckers’ jamboree at the Iowa 80, billed as the world’s largest truck stop? Or the annual Testicle Festival, also known as the Testy Festy, in Montana? Or an order of onion rings at the New Jersey diner where the fictional Tony Soprano had his last family supper? Never mind the traditional tourism spots. Here are 15 quirky, intriguing, sometimes downright tasty -- ideas for 2015.

Genie in a Bottle, Roxbury, NY:

Want to deep dive back into your favorite TV shows and movies of the 1960s and 1970s? Check into the Shagadellic Suite, the Genie’s Bottle or the Partridge Nest at the Roxbury Motel in the Catskills, where innkeepers and spouses Gregory Henderson and Joseph Massa’s love of whimsy and elegance will make your vacation experience one of a kind. Animal Planet’s "Tanked" show designed the aquarium in the Archaeologist’s Digs three-bedroom cottage, which was inspired by Indiana Jones and other adventures. (Secret passageways and Mayan Temple bedroom included.)
