“Iconic”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Very entertaining to see. Fun to stop and get a picture. Not on the main road through Plains but the road between town and their church. Worth making a short detour for.

“Good as a drive by attraction, not a day trip.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I grew up 12 miles from Plains. We always rode by this thing. It is cool, especially as a kid to look at it when riding by, but that's the extent of it. I wouldn't worry about stopping & lord knows don't shop at the run down store. But as something cool to see on a road trip on your way to the Carter Boyhood Farm, it is a must see.

“Look that smile”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This statue was made when people began coming to Plains to see the good ole southern boy that was running for president. That smile was his trademark and yes his natural teeth. When you saw Jimmy Carter he always had that smile. A great image of his big toothy smile.

“Cute”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very fitting. After all, it is the peanut capital of the world. The whole area is a great place to visit.

“YES”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I think any roadside statue should be seen and have your picture taken with. Most kids in South love Jimmy Carter and to go to Plains.
