Fir time in Enterprise and was told we needed to go see the Boll Weevil. It's not very big but it was definitely a unique stop during our visit. Now I can say I saw it:)

Never seen a monument to a Boll Weevil. How could anyone visit Enterprise and not go to this unique display. You can't miss it.....right in the center of town. Watch out for traffic in both directions. Everyone we talked to said when you are in Enterprise go see this monument. It will give you bragging rights. We have been traveling for years and this certainly was a 1st for us.

So, the monument isn't really a tourist destination. It's no Statue of Liberty or anything remotely close. It's a monument in the middle of the road that pays homage to the boll weevil. It's worth a drive through town, if you're in the area. It's interesting and quirky, which I highly enjoy.

It's a pretty cool monument but lacks access and not large enough to warrant any kind of awe factor. I can only imagine that this would be an ideal Pokemon stop, so it may get a boost of visitors and perhaps the city can enhance the display with a light show or decorations throughout the year to entice visitors to the area. I'm pulling for the city of progress as I just purchased my first home here.

Visited friends for dinner and walked around the town. In the center of the main street there is a statue of a lady holding up a boll weevil. This was fun as to do. Just a little ole' boll weevil. This is one of those things you do so that you can tell others you had your photo taken with a boll weevil statue - too funny.
