Jolly Green Giant

I found the Jolly Green Giant statue quite by accident this summer, towering over the local Dollar General and Dairy Queen, on a road trip from the House on the Rock to the Wall Drug Dinosaur. He looks pretty good considering his age and the Minnesota winters (According to the posted information nearby, Santa wraps him in a warm red scarf every Christmas). He is even lit at night, although that might give the little ones nightmares. The lady in the "world's largest" Green Giant museum (Is there a another one?) was very sweet and friendly.

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.
