“The name says it all!”
The World’s Largest Rocking Chair.. One of many big things in this small town!
Eight (8) of the world's largest items as certified by Guinness, they have the certificates to prove it! If you are in the area it is worth a side trip to go check out these amazingly sized items. In the summer on Saturdays between 10 AM and 2 PM they run a free trolley that will take you around to all the items. (Really worth the time to take the trolley as some of the items are not right in town or visible unless you know where they are.)
This was the cutest little town with the biggest roadside attractions I've ever seen! Get there before 5 as the shops close early and we missed the biggest wooden shoes which are housed indoors. Great stop for lunch too.
Our favorite and most impressive of the World's Largest attractions in Casey. Very well kept. Would be cool if you could sit on it but still worth the stop. Don't forget to see the mailbox (just a 2 block walk) and the wooden shoes in the candy shop behind the mailbox. There was even a giant pencil although no mention of it being part of the World's Largest collection.
So much bigger then we expected. In such a cute little town filled with some big ticket items great for a fun impromptu photo shoot.
What a fun little town! We saw several of the large things, including the rocking chair, wind chimes, pencil, and mailbox. Definitely check out the candy store if you're in town - they have a small entry door for kids, the world's largest wooden shoes, and their dark chocolate salted caramels are delish! The people in the shop were super sweet and had a lot of knowledge about the town and all the large items. We learned that for something to be registered as the largest anything, it also has to function appropriately. We bought postcards from the candy shop and sent them from the giant mailbox - the kids thought it was really cool to see the huge flag go up once they dropped their cards in. We will absolutely be stopping there again on future road trips.
Definitely worth it to stop in Casey. It was a favorite for every member of our family. The Rocking Chair and Mailbox were the favorites - but there are MANY “World’s Largest” including pencil, wind chimes, golf tee, bird cage ... the little store across the street from the Mailbox has a map with the latest. You can also rent bikes there so you can ride between the attractions. We went right after they started opening post COVID so it was empty but driving from locale to locale would have otherwise taken time. I would allot a good chunk of time for cruising between and photos. There are also several places to eat which we are told are good but everything was closed when we were there so we didn’t get to eat as planned.
A must see. The town is full of "worlds largest". I think they are up to 11 but the rocking chair is by far the best.
In stature, this is probably the most impressive “world’s largest” item in Casey! Beautiful landscaping and right by the street, making it easy to get photo ops.
Casey, Illinois is a quaint town with BIG attractions. My husband and I stopped into Casey on our way back to Ohio from Kansas City. We had a great time. It was a great day trip. Start with breakfast, and visit the sites(which were cool and fun) lunch and shop. We had some great conversations with some of the merchants. Friendly, clean city.
The rocking chair was our favorite “world’s largest” stop. It’s impressive and my kids loved it! Worth the quick stop. Very cute, friendly town.
