OK, if in Bangor, find Paul Bunyan. Also there is a waterfront walk that begins across the street behind the casino.

Not really sure why it's here. Was told it was much taller than it is. No descriptive signage to explain the significance.

We made a quick stop to check out the statue on our way to dinner. The size is pretty impressive! Worth the stop.

A really neat feature just off the road. A good tourist attraction that you must stop and take a snapshot to say you were there. A great way to start or end your stay in Bangor.

It sure is big....kinda something you gotta see when your in the vicinity. To me it is out of place, but you never know when something usual appears out of the blue.

We were visiting Maine and staying in Bangor when we saw this as a local attraction. It's in front of an insurance company building and easy to find. We had fun taking pictures of each other and doing the selfie stick routine. Where else are...More
