The Enchanted Highway is a collection of the world's largest scrap metal sculptures constructed at intervals along a 32-mile stretch of two-lane highway in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of North Dakota. The road has no highway number, although its northern portion is 100½th Avenue S.W. (counting from Bismarck, N.D., which is 85 miles to the east). Local artist Gary Greff conceived of the project, built it beginning in 1989, maintains it and plans more sculptures. A goal is to counter the trend toward extinction of small towns such as Regent, North Dakota. The Enchanted Highway extends north from Regent to the Gladstone exit of Interstate 94 east of Dickinson. Each sculpture has a developed pull-out and several have picnic shelters. The highway passes through scenic farm country with intermittent buttes. Regent is a popular pheasant hunting area, and wild game is abundant.In 2012, Greff opened a motel, The Enchanted Castle, in Regent. The motel continues the theme of the Enchanted Highway.SculpturesThe Tin Family (1991)Teddy Rides Again (1993)Pheasants on the Prairie (1996)Grasshoppers in the Field (1999)Geese in Flight (2001)Deer Crossing (2002)Fisherman's Dream (2006)Spider Webs (In progress)With our custom trip planner, Regent attractions like Enchanted Highway can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
