Worth a visit to the quaint town to take a picture with the worlds largest gingerbread man ! Cute little park with gorgeous gazebo and lots of other smaller gingerbread men. Lots of movies have been filmed here like Hope Floats.

When traveling we always seek out the tallest, largest, whatever wherever we are and here's another. Located on south end of Main Street, next to a small railroad museum, it is a cool photo op!!! Kids will love it!!

Unless you're in dire need of a kitschy Christmas card photo, your time will be spent better in local cafes or shops
