I first went to the Corn Palace as a child and it never left my imagination. As an adult, I drove cross country with a friend from outside of the US and made a special detour to show him the Corn Palace. Weird? Yes. But wonderful in its weirdness. I put it on the list of 1000 Things You Must See Before You Die. It is THAT off the wall. And this is from someone who has canoed in the Okavango, climbed Ayers Rock, the Great Wall of China, clambered up both the Mexican and Egyptian pyramids, did I mention Borubador? The Corn Palace is my idea of a farmer tripping.over 2 years ago

although when I first saw the tops of it over the neighboring buildings, I laughed! It’s really an absurd building, but I needed a thing to drive towards on my trip, and I love that I can now tell people that I’ve been to “The World’s Only Corn Palace”, as the building proudly proclaims. It’s amazing in its own way — don’t expect to be entertained by anything other than the fact that it exists.over 5 years ago
my father never stopped on road trips…we finally convinced him he had to detour 50 miles out of the way to go to the Corn Palace. We got there mid-morning, late Summer, and the entire building was being attacked by birds. It was terrifying. People running everywhere…poop everywhere…corn flying all over the place….
we never even got out of the car.
and my father to this day uses the corn palace as an example of all the bad reasons to make stops on trips.over 6 years ago
