Metropolis, IL

One of my favorite weird things we’ve done this summer was stopping in Metropolis, IL, home of Superman. The star attraction in that small town is a 15-foot high Superman statue:

There’s also a Superman Museum (which we didn’t visit) and a gift shop (which we did, and was full of pretty cool stuff, including an old phone booth with a pay phone!):

It might not be giant, but there is also a statue of Noel Neill as Lois Lane:

This was a fun little stop, and one of those strange things you can only find in small town America!
