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.

Nice Small town, a great break from Highway driving. There is an Ice Cream shop next to the Worlds Largest mailbox. We drove around town, stopped for gas and continued on our way.
