The Grant’s Pass Caveman In Oregon Just Might Be The Strangest Roadside Attraction Yet
Oregon’s roadside attractions are all as quirky and wonderful as you’d expect. From a huge, red candle on the side of the highway in Scappoose, to the 31-foot-tall Paul Bunyan in Portland, you’ll find dozens of head-turning oddities all over the Beaver State.
There’s a large fiberglass caveman standing in front of the Grants Pass Visitor Bureau between Morgan Lane and Vine Street in Grants Pass, and if you don’t know the story behind his existence, you might think it’s pretty strange. Turns out, there’s a charming story behind the caveman culture here.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
