Visit one of the oldest surviving roadside attractions in America!

Lucy the Elephant was built to promote real estate sales and attract tourists in 1881 and today she is the oldest surviving roadside attraction in the US.  Lucy is 65 feet tall and weighs around 90 tons.  She has served as a restaurant, office, cottage, tavern and the first and only National Historic Landmark allowing overnight stays.

There is a fee to go inside Lucy and visitors that do so must be part of a guided tour, there is no touring Lucy on your own.  Tours have a small fee the tours last about 20-25 minutes each, with tours runny about every 45 minutes.

Fun fact; Lucy is actually a boy as the name suggests and how people often refer to her.   Lucy is an Asian elephant based on the number of toes and the shape of her head. With this in mind, she also has large tusks and only male Asian elephants have tusks.
