Who knew that a dull grey concrete barrier along U.S. 101 in Burlingame, California near the San Francisco International Airport would become a tourist attraction?
But it has.
After Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was forced to negotiate an unorthodox entrance – hopping a fence off the highway, essentially - into the California GOP Convention on Friday, looky-loos have started to visit there to snap selfies.
The political Calbuzz blog on Saturday captured one such family – a man and three children – taking pictures by the so-called “Trump Fence” to document the historical concrete barrier, where Caltrans has been working to widen the highway.

“They’re kind of liberal,” the unnamed father told Calbuzz of the kids. “It’s important for them to see this.”
For his part, Trump has capitalized on entering the Hyatt Regency via highway entrance because he was blocked by protesters who were carrying signs that read “Stop Hate,” and “Suck it, Trump.”
He got a lot of laughs when he kicked off his speech by joking: "I felt like I was crossing the border."
