The valley is worth exploring, and it's about two miles long and a mile wide of bizarre formations.

4. Museum of Broken Relationships, Hollywood

If you have a newly broken heart and need some "misery loves company," this may just be the perfect spot.

5. Winchester Mystery House, California

It's probably one of the most unique destinations in California and it was built by Sarah Winchester with Winchester rifle’s legacy.

When you visit this place, you will come across some secret passages, doors that lead to nowhere and even a twisting hallway or two.
