Cute town. Stopped on a roadtrip so none of the stores were open when we got there (8am). Be sure to plan accordingly if you want to see the wooden clogs and knitting needle/crochet hook because they are indoors!

We loved this roadside attraction! This entire group of BIG items in a SMALL town is so cool! My husband and I loved it so much that we are taking another trip to show the kids. I would suggest asking someone to take your photo before you climb up up the steps.

Good lord this is a cool roadside attraction! You can climb steps at the back to get up and see over main street. It's actually a really well made and good looking thing. Definitely worth a stop!

While we didn’t walk to the top of the mailbox (lots of screaming kids that day haha), we thought it was really cool that you could! Cute pond behind it too that leads to the World’s Largest Wooden Shoes (inside the candy shop).

Neat that you can actually mail stuff there. There are 24 steps that may not be good for disabled, or those extremely out of shape. It's across the street from the bird cage, and down the road from the pencil, wind chimes, and rocker.

Casey is such a cute town. We got there later in the evening so we couldn't see the knitting needles or clogs because they're housed indoors but the mailbox was my favorite! There's a box inside you can actually mail letters and when you drop your post in the box, the flag on the outside raises. Adorable.

I concur with all the rave reviews but here’s an update: as of June 2020 the flag doesn’t work when you drop something in the mailbox within ... parallel, if you mail something from the mailbox atop/inside, it gets delivered with a stamp, “Sent from the World’s Largest Mailbox.” As such, buy or bring a postcard, sign it with year, and mail to yourself as a memento! My kids are so excited to get home and get their postcards with the stamp that says where they mailed it from as a keepsake for our fun road trip.

I stopped there last year on a road trip I took with my kids. It’s the cleanest town I have ever seen. The entire town has huge items everywhere. We had fun walking around the town and looking at the various giant items. It is well worth the stop. There is a candy store and ice cream shop near the mailbox that is really good. The locals are very friendly too.
