As said before, this is a good place to stop and enjoy not sitting in a car. Kids may enjoy The Green Giant because it is like seeing a cartoon character in person. Adults may like it for the same reason and the fact that it is unique.

When we travel, we look for "unique" stops to stretch our legs. The Green Giant Status was a good little stop. There is a few little walking paths and parking was easy.

Neat roadside attraction. Opportunity to see the Green Giant, take a photo (the little shop was closed so no postcards available) and grab lunch at the DQ next door. Perfect break for the family. I asked the clerk in the DQ about the red scarf around the Giant's neck and apparently there is a big ceremony in which Santa places... More

Grew up during the time when green giant veggies were the most awesome veggie...the "niblet corn" was my favorite. That being said...took a trip westward to Yellowstone from North Carolina and I decided this was a mandatory stop. We were racing to get there before dark and finally got there at 5:45 pm. The weather was perfect and the sun... More

This is one of those magical places in the US where you gotta go at least once. Its located in a really small town in the middle of nowhere. Your driving along then you see this enormous green man. Its very neat.

This is a pretty unique statue, but it's just as billed and nothing more - a huge Green Giant statue. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but since we were staying in town it was worth a short walk from our hotel to check out and take some pictures underneath.

This is a great place to stop, stretch your legs, and to see something you just don't see every day. Make sure you have a camera. I stopped with a large group and used it for a photo opt. A half hour is plenty of time.

Even though there isn't much to do here it's worth the picture of you and your family at the statue. Young kids will live it! Adults will love to reminisce.

Definitely worth the stop if driving close by. There is a step up area to stand under this tall statues legs for photo ops. Cool momento of the area. Right behind the Dairy Queen.

Heard of this attraction and had to see it for myself. Not bad area. It's right off the Interstate. Got a good photo for the blog. Plus a sunny day to be out
