It's a really big statue, but that is all. You can see it as a drive by, or park and take a closer look.

We were passing through Maine on our trip to New Brunswick and had to stop to see Paul Bunyan. We took the advice to park in the casino (which is free) across the street to take photos. I suggest if you are already in Bangor-stop to see this!

Paul Bunyan is a local historic figure known far and wide. He repesents the larger than life logging industry of Maine and it's larger than life heroic people.

Park in the casino garage across the street - it's free! There isn't much to this, just a fun statue to take your picture with. We have photos with Babe from Minnesota, so we couldn't miss Paul in Bangor!

A must see photo shot and a local icon that stands out. Much has been built around him over the years as Bangor has expanded now with all the known chain stores

Who doesn't want their pic taken standing next to a major iconic statue? And if you are visiting during regular weekday business hours, stop over to city hall to see Paul Bunyan ' s birth certificate.

There is nothing to do here but stand in front of this ridiculous statue and have your picture made. The biggest problem s finding a place to park for all of the 2 minutes that you will be here.

While the statue may have moved, he remains the same. What a fun piece to go and see and have your picture taken with. I like its new placement at the cross Insurance Center.

The Paul Bunyan Statue can be seen outside the casino in Bangor. This large beauty stands proud. The local rumor mill suggest that his pal, Babe the blue ox, might be joining him soon! I don't know what could be better!

This is a nice quick stop. It is a statue of an American legend. It would be good to combine it with a trip to the new Auditorium or the state fair
