Someone at one of the stores downtown told us about this place. This person said that we should go up to the top of the casino garage across the street to get an "eye-to-eye" view. Fun place to stop!

Across the street from the Hollywood Casino, this unique statue is good for a photo or two. There is parking behind the gas station near the statue.
