    Very interesting statute and didn't realize there was a statute of Paul Bunyon, Shopping was fantastic and getting around a new city was not too stressful.  more »

    Paul is 31' tall and looks like a friendly guy! Not much to do but look at him and take some photos but we thought it was a fun stop.  more »

    Just a big statue. You can grab some food from nearby subway and munch sitting in benches nearby and go have a walk downtown  more »

    I thought it was kind of a cool quirky landmark, it kind of fits Bangor.

    This enormous, creepy statue is surprisingly well hidden. We drove past it three times without even noticing it. Which seems crazy once we finally had it pointed out to us. The statue is hidden behind trees and the corner of a building. What is meant to be charming and campy is vaguely terrifying. If you're on the roof of the casino parking lot, you can get a good view of this weird giant man with too many teeth. There is no Babe the Blue Ox to accompany Paul. Find raising efforts have stalled, over the years, we were told by a local guide. So what you're left with is this big butch lumberjack which I assume the homosexual Bangor residents worship as a homoerotic icon. All Bangor gay pride parades should start or end here.
