Very interesting statute and didn't realize there was a statute of Paul Bunyon, Shopping was fantastic and getting around a new city was not too stressful.

Paul is 31' tall and looks like a friendly guy! Not much to do but look at him and take some photos but we thought it was a fun stop.

Just a big statue. You can grab some food from nearby subway and munch sitting in benches nearby and go have a walk downtown

It was interesting to see...met some other tourists while checking this out. Also went to the top floor of the parking garage of the casino to see it.

The statue is pretty cool! It is across the street from their casino. I took a few good photos of it. It is 31 feet tall. They say that it is the tallest Paul Bunyan in the world.
