Well, of course we had to stop and take a pic with the huge roadrunner!!! The only problem is the intersection it is in. Just make sure to park to side with the empty lot and look both ways when crossing the road!!!

Maybe if it weren't in the midsection of the road, it could be a better selfie spot? Otherwise - wow, look, a big roadrunner statue. I like the giant folding chairs in Odessa more.

The roadrunner was big like everything is in Texas! I saw so many little ones on my trip. It was so cool!

There are not a large number of picture-worthy places in Fort Stockton, but this is one of them. Get your photo with the only thriving wildlife in West Texas (barring maybe javelinas). Biggest road-runner statue I've seen.

The statue was easy to find (Dickinson St.-business I-10) and Main. but crossing the busy street was a little worrisome since there were no crosswalks or pedestrian traffic signal. We just had to run when there was a break in the traffic flow. I would be concerned if I had small children or a stroller with me. The statue is... More

Every time we take a trip, we always seem to find these World's Largest _______. Finding the worlds largest roadrunner was amazing. As it turns out, This roadrunner was the world's largest until 2002 when it was replace by another road runner in NM.

We try to stop in for a photo-op every time we stop for gas and eats in Fort Stockton. The best parking is across the road to the southeast in a gravel lot. Watch out for the light traffic when crossing the road with little children. It's right along the main street in a triangle of roads. Paisano Pete is... More

The giant roadrunner is a must for photo op when you are in the area. While there, go across the street to the visitor center where you will find some great displays about the area's role in the energy industry and regional history.
