Don't even have to stop for a great picture of this oddity. Great if you are riding with a non-stopper. Save your "must see" for something else, but still get a cool pic!

I can't help but smile when we drive by this! Cool history behind it also. Worth a look if you're close.

The World's Largest Caterpillar is really only good for a quick roadside picture. Take exit and stay on frontage road. You will see the caterpillar building before entering I-35 (going north).

Biggest I've ever seen -- 60 ft. wide, 350 ft. long, 22 ft. tall. Right on I-35, 45 miles south of Dallas, TX, exactly at Italy, , mile marker 386. Is seven domes merged together, formed by sprayed concrete over a balloon -- the national home of Monolithic Dome Industries.
