Great picture spot. Go across the street to 2nd or 3rd floor of parking garage of Hollywood Casino for even better picture!

I have always admired this grand statue since I was a child! He has been repainted to his glory. Worthy of a visit with him.

Iconic statue in Bangor Maine. Bangor has a history of being a boom town for the wood industry in the years of its first development.

The statue is a good likeness of a big lumberjack. An earlier review expressed disappointment that it was a poor resemblance. Since Paul Bunyan is a fictional character, I am prompted to ask "A good likeness of what?" At any rate, it's a large statue standing on a corner in the city that you catch a glimpse of in passing.

Brochures and travel guides mention this statue but don't tell where it is--so we happened to be on Main Street and found him. He's big and impressive.

The statue don't look very good and the bull is missing. It look cheap and not good likeness of the real Paul Bunyan.

The statue is ok, but nothing special. It is very close to the Residence Inn. There is a nice walk in front of it, easy to take a picture.
