He's very tall and very green. Nice gas stations and places for a quick bite. Ate at Dairy Queen and walked over to the site, which is right in the back. Nice little park-like area, with some information on the big guy, and a small and quaint museum and gift shop. Great place to stop and stretch your legs.

July 2014: The westbound I-90 exit to Blue Earth and the Jolly Green Giant is closed. Allow 10 minutes for detour. [Rob, 07/13/2014]

You can see him from the interstate but stopping is worth it. It is only a minute or two from 90, easy on easy off. There is a walk up for pictures and a little gift shop. Quick easy and fun.

It wasn't that far off the freeway. Nice stop, and there are places to get gas and food very close. Easy to find. The little guy [Sprout] was at the gas station closest to the freeway. There is also a place to get souvenirs in the parking area.
