The statue was interesting. It was very tall and was across the street from the Hollywood casino in Bangor. Nothing much else to say. It was just a statue.

Hey, why not? If you are in the area, take a look at it. Parking is located nearby. Sidewalks lead to the large statue. This is a well-maintained sculpture. It was fun to see this Roadside America attraction.

Wow--I have been reading about Paul for many years--I wanted to see his blue ox. Centrally located--but you have to look. Big but easily missed.

Across the street from our hotel and it is a must to take pictures with the huge statute and tell Paul Bunyan. Make up some of your own with your family.

But if you're a Stephen King Fan, you need to stop and take a pic here. Well maintained statue and grounds, FYI.

If you have ever been to Bangor you have probably seen him standing watch. With all the construction around him he has seen a lot in the past 15 years!

Cool statue. We were going to dinner next door and stopped and took the kids to see Paul Bunyan. My 5 year old got a kick out of seeing the statue.
