The world s largest porch swing, in Hebron, Neb., seats 25 people.

With the University of Colorado taking on the Huskers on Black Friday, as per tradition, traveling Buff fans will have the weekend to make their way home before school and work on Monday.

If you take advantage of the long weekend, you can check out some of the quirkiest sites that Nebraska has to offer.

The world’s largest porch swing, which seats 25 people, is in Hebron, Neb., less then two hours from Lincoln.

Carhenge, a Stonehenge replica made of 38 cars, is a two-hour detour north of Interstate 80, in the middle of a dusty field in Alliance, Neb.

Omaha, Neb., only an hour from Lincoln, features the world’s largest ball of stamps and the world’s biggest coffeepot.

And while Burwell, Neb., is almost two hours out of the way, it might be worth the drive to see a two-headed calf.

But even if you’re planning to spend the entire trip in Lincoln, you won’t be disappointed.

The city includes a giant chicken statue, a Mexican restaurant decorated by giant chrome insects, The National Museum of Roller Skating, a Telephone Museum and The Johnson Museum of the Odd (in case the rest isn’t strange enough).
