You gotta see the Green Giant! Convenient access to the interstate makes it a great and short stop. They’re currently building a new welcome center which looks amazing and will be a move addition when completed! PS. Don’t forget Sprout

Just happened to pull off the hwy for a pit stop & saw the statue! Make sure you climb the stairs to get your photos. The folks at the little shop were very nice.

A fun place to stop and enjoy little break with a big green giant. Thanks to the community for supporting this site. There are stairs in the back so you can stand up next to the giant.
