This statue is right in front of the Cross Center next to the Residency Inn on Main Street, It is well taken care of and worth a picture.

The statue is easy to find on Main Street. It is a challenge to find parking in order to walk back to take a photo but we did it. If in Bangor this is one photo you need to take.

Driving into Bangor to see the Paul Bunyon statue is easy enough, it's just off I-395. The statue sits on the Cross Insurance Convention Center. Definitely a neat attraction to stop and photograph. We enjoyed the visit. I hope this helps you decide to take a few minutes out and see this attraction. There aren't many things like this to... More

This is a MUST SEE in Bangor, ME. It is one of those things that you see that "everyone" says you are suppose to do. It's current location though makes it a bit tough to get a photo and also not terribly easy to park and get to. We did it, we got the "must see" photo but I kind... More

I thought Paul Bunyan was from the Northwest, so I was surprised. It is not easy to stop and take a photo of the statue, and it faces a busy road. It is, however interesting and HUGE !

I happened to stop at the Irving gas station across from the Hollywood Casino, and there was the 31-foot statue of Paul Bunyon in Bass Park. I was disappointed to see that the statue was dwarfed by a corporate building behind it. Personally, I think the statue should be moved to a scenic park surrounded by trees with no buildings...

Best seen from the parking garage top of the casino across the street. This will be fun for the little kids to see.
