Foamhenge is an art installation created in the likeness of England’s Stonehenge by Mark Cline in 2004. The foam stones began to deteriorate by 2015, and the installation will reopen in a new home at Cox Farms in 2017. Take a strictly faux-henge tour throughout the U.S; there are other, unrelated Stonehenge replicas in Maryhill, Washington; Hunt, Texas; and Odessa, Texas.
This Eiffel Tower does have one obvious difference from its predecessor in Paris, France: a giant cowboy hat sits atop the structure. It was built in honor of the city’s namesake, but it isn’t the only Eiffel Tower replica in the U.S. (Las Vegas hosts the largest). It’s also no the strangest attraction in the area – make sure to stop by the cowboy boot-wearing Jesus grave marker and dragon statue while in Paris, Texas.
There is one replica worth seeking out in Las Vegas: a full-scale replica of King Tutankhamen’s tomb. This $3 million version of the ancient Egyptian pharoah’s resting place was originally constructed for the pyramid-shaped Luxor Casino. It now resides inside the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, and the 500 nearly identical faux antiques inside provide an educational attraction in an otherwise party-centric destination.
