Lucy the Elephant on the Jersey Shore

You can finally stay in the iconic New Jersey attraction: a 138-year-old wooden elephant that stands at six stories tall. Fun fact: Lucy is the oldest roadside attraction in America, pre-dating both the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and has been hosting stays since 1902.
