We love selfies. It’s a scientific fact.
Have you taken a selfie at these places around Limaland? We think they’re the best around!
1) Veteran’s Freedom Flag Memorial (Shawnee Township)
Look at that bad boy. Beautiful. Majestic. American.
The Veteran’s Freedom Flag Memorial in front of the tank plant was basically tailor-made for selfies. Go take one!
2) The Giant Bull in Gilboa
He’s 16 feet tall and ready to mingle!
Legend has it the bull used to sit outside a bar in Toledo before being moved to Gilboa in the mid 70’s.
Just off US 224, the best time to visit is during Christmas time, when his nose is lit up like Rudolph.
3) The Gene Autry Mural (Kenton)
Once the largest iron toy manufacturer in the world, the Kenton Hardware Company had fallen on hard times back in 1937. Workers were only working two days a week, toys had been discontinued.
The president of the Kenton Hardware Company thought they could make toys that were modeled after Gene Autry’s pearl-handled pistol. They got in contact with Autry’s people. Intrigued, they sent one of Autry’s pistols to Kenton. A master toy maker made a mold, and the Kenton Hardware Company was able to start producing the toy, selling for 50 cents a piece, which was a pretty penny back then.
By 1939, two million toy guns had been sold and the company (and town) had been saved.
So Kenton has long loved Gene Autry, and in 2004, the Hardware company had a mural painted in his honor.
It’s gorgeous. Check that thing out! It’s perfect for selfies!
4) Mad River Mountain
Mad River Mountain is awesome. Plain and simple. Look at that thing. And that’s just the tubing park. If you’re not coordinated enough to ski (and believe me, I’m not), the tubing park is for you.
And during the winter months, Mad River Mountain is the place to be, and one of the best places for selfies in Limaland.
5) Big Bob (Celina)
Big Bob is a 31-foot bass that makes appearances in and around Celina on Grand Lake during the summer months.
It’s a 31-foot long, 14-foot tall bass. Do we really need to explain why you need to get a selfie with it?
6) Armstrong Air and Space Museum (Wapak)
The Armstrong Air and Space Museum is a gem. For real. If you’ve never been, you gotta check it out.
Extra selfie points if you can get the moon in your selfie in front of the museum for the first guy to walk on the moon.
7) Oldest Concrete Street in America (Downtown Bellefontaine)
Making history in Logan County since 1891, yo. The oldest concrete street in America.
It would be kinda cool if they left it that way, right?
No. That would be awful. I’m ashamed I even though that.
But look at that sign. It’s badass! And that statue! Perfect for selfies!
8) McKinley Street (Bellefontaine)
Speaking of streets in Bellefontaine, the World’s Shortest Street (not really) is McKinley Street in Bellefontaine.
There’s a sign and everything!
Actually, according to the Guinness Book of World Record, the shortest street in the world is actually in Scotland and is just 6 feet 9 inches.
But can you really pass up a sign that says “World’s Shortest Street”?
9) Bloody Bridge (St. Marys)
There are tons of “Bloody Bridge” stories throughout the country. But the Bloody Bridge on State Route 66 between St. Marys and Spencerville is as real as it gets.
That story is insane. Bill is a savage.
DUDE CHOPPED ANOTHER DUDE’S HEAD OFF IN ONE SWING.
That was built for an insta selfie.
10) Kewpee (East, West, or Downtown)
The lights. The baby. The cheeseburgers.
Kewpee was hand crafted for selfies. Plus, when you post it, people will be jealous cause they’re not eating a double with cheese, lettuce, mustard, and pickle.
It’s the best.
