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

If you're grabbing a donut at Downtown Donuts or your wife drags you to Serendipity (women's clothing) stand in the middle of the intersection and enjoy! The monument is definitely a "been there, done that" experience. It's what it represents that is important. So, read...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

It's just one of those things where people think, "wow, a monument for a bug." However, it's kind of neat to see and it's right downtown. I would recommend to drive by and visit - it doesn't take too long and is worth a picture.
