SEBRING, Fla. — The Lost Mines of Atlantis is an old-school roadside attraction that's all parts weird, wonderful and a blast for the whole family.

The Sebring funspot on U.S. Highway 27 beckons travelers with giant cutouts of Sasquatch patrolling the grounds — and then keeps visitors there with a wild mining experience.

Mystery mining buckets start at $20, and are packed with all manner of geodes and precious gems.

My favorite? You can even crack a geode with a hand-cranking apparatus.

The attraction also includes the Greenman Curiosity Shop, which sells everything from rocks to oils to "Florida Water Cologne," plus a sprawling marketplace covered in colorful tchotchkes from Mexico.

The whole site is an Instagrammer's dream.
