I really hate giving a poor rating, but this is one of the most inaccessible "tourist attractions" I have ever seen. It looks from the sidewalk, but you have to walk into traffic to get a better look. I looked at it for about 10...More

Pros: What can you say.... It is the only known statue in the world that pays homage to a bug. Cons: 'Someone isolated. If I were not here for work I don't think I would make the trek to see it. TF

Just a neat photo opportunity for anyone visiting the fine city of Enterprise. It's at the intersection to the courthouse and all of Main Street's shops. It's well lit for ideal night time photos as well.
