The Weirdest McDonald's Locations In The World

McDonald's, arguably the most iconic American fast-food chain, is known for its menu but not so much its décor. Though their meals and beverages are not among the healthiest found on the market, people go there because they know they can still get their "usual," regardless of the destination.[slideshow:93407]

So how can you make the joint more exotic and attractive? Perhaps by setting it in a decommissioned airplane, in the middle of the desert, making it look like it was used in The Flintstones movie, or designing it to appear like a giant kids' playground?

Most of the 36,000 McDonald's restaurants in 119 counties are recognizable from miles away, as you can see the colossal golden arches and the big red clown from the road. It gets even more familiar as you get closer. But a few have stories of their own.

Some may not have been allowed to build brand new venues and others may have chosen to preserve the unique look of a historic mansion or a castle. Whatever the reason, the result is peculiar but beautiful in a unique way.

For a special side order of ambiance and super-sized exceptional character, visit one of these distinct venues.
