The Gold Pyramid

Driving through Wadsworth, Illinois, you might think that Dilleys Road has been interrupted by a wormhole. That's because a huge pyramid, surrounded by a moat and walls decorated with hieroglyphics, sits matter-of-factly on a lot adjacent to typical American homes. But the structure hasn't been transported from Middle Kingdom Egypt. Known as The Gold Pyramid, it was built as a private residence in 1977 by creative couple Jim and Linda Onan and features six floors, a three-pyramid garage, and a giant statue of Ramses II that guards the entrance. Guided tours take visitors around the pyramid's public areas—decorated with Egyptian-style furnishings—and into a replica of King Tut's tomb. To memorialize your visit, check out the onsite gift shop for costumes and souvenirs instead of pocketing a cursed artifact from the pharaoh's sarcophagus.
