I really hate giving a poor rating, but this is one of the most inaccessible "tourist attractions" I have ever seen. It looks from the sidewalk, but you have to walk into traffic to get a better look. I looked at it for about 10...More

If you're grabbing a donut at Downtown Donuts or your wife drags you to Serendipity (women's clothing) stand in the middle of the intersection and enjoy! The monument is definitely a "been there, done that" experience. It's what it represents that is important. So, read...More

Pros: What can you say.... It is the only known statue in the world that pays homage to a bug. Cons: 'Someone isolated. If I were not here for work I don't think I would make the trek to see it. TF

It's just one of those things where people think, "wow, a monument for a bug." However, it's kind of neat to see and it's right downtown. I would recommend to drive by and visit - it doesn't take too long and is worth a picture.

Just a neat photo opportunity for anyone visiting the fine city of Enterprise. It's at the intersection to the courthouse and all of Main Street's shops. It's well lit for ideal night time photos as well.
