The Center of the World – Felicity, Ca

If you ever wondered where the center of the world is, exactly, it's in Felicity, California. This is where, in the 1950s, French-born Jacques-Andre Istel purchased 2,600 acres of empty land, declared himself the mayor, and erected a hodgepodge of monuments including a spiral staircase supposedly salvaged from the Eiffel Tower, a hillstop church, and a "History of Humanity" wall that starts with the Big Bang and is still unfinished.

For $3, you can step inside a peach granite pyramid, place your feet upon the metal plaque that says, "Official Center of the World," and check this one off your bucket list.
