World's Largest Paul Bunyan

Minneapolis

While Paul Bunyan statues can be spotted in many towns around the Great Lakes, only Minnesota has the world's largest version of the mythical lumberjack hero. The state also has the oldest roadside Bunyan and Babe statues in Bemidji, which claims to be his birthplace, but you can't rest in Bunyan's mighty palm like you can with this 30ft-tall kneeling shrine.
