This Roadside Attraction In Minnesota Is The Most Unique Thing You’ve Ever Seen

Here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, we have almost as many quirky roadside attractions decorating our highways and byways. Some celebrate Minnesota’s natural resources, like the countless giant walleye that grace our roadsides. Others, like statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe, celebrate Minnesota’s culture. Still other attractions, like Chisolm’s Iron Man, point to the state’s industries. And some are just plain weird: Ed’s Museum and the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine, to name a few.

In Blue Earth, Minnesota, each of these four categories combine at the giant roadside statue of the Jolly Green Giant. It celebrates Minnesota’s agriculture, reminds visitors of the state’s homegrown businesses, and has become a state symbol almost as iconic as Paul Bunyan. Below, you’ll find the history of this unique roadside attraction as well as what you’ll find when you visit it:
