“Great in a heat wave”

One heck of a fire hydrant... Just don't bring Fido- he might go nuts!  This huge tilted steel construction isn't much of an eye pleaser, but serves as a nice photo op if you are passing through Columbia, SC.

A fun thing to see! The signs telling people not to allow their dogs to pee is funny!! I think Clifford the big red dog is the only dog that purse use it correctly.

Angel is right! I think the murals by the hydrant are even cooler. Pull your car up and it looks like you're driving into the mural. Perfect road trip photo op.

It’s actually on Taylor St, one block over. We like to stop at photo ops, take a quick pic & get back on the road. Breaks up our trip & makes it fun. So this was great for that. We then went over another block and got crepes at Crepes and Croissants. Yummy!

There's no sign commemorating it, so honestly I'm a little skeptical about the truthfulness of "the world's largest." However, the surrounding sidewalks and parking lots are full of BEAUTIFUL murals. Got some really cool pics. Not far off the interstate, and you get to drive through the university campus which was gorgeous. Worth a quick stop.

We like to visit the "World's Largest" things when traveling. This was an alright stop, but kind of a one and done. Once you've seen it, you've been there done that. It's free. Would be more interesting if near a fire house, and more brightly painted.

Yep, that's a big ass fire hydrant. Funny signs saying not to let your dog pee on it, they don't say anything about peeing on it yourself though... Maybe I would have tried it if this didn't share a parking lot with a police department..

You can no longer pull up to the murals to take pictures they are behind an automated gate now.

Pretty cool place to stop on your travels. It was less than 5 miles off of our trek from Virginia to New Orleans. The fire hydrant was a pretty cool sight. Even better, there was a cool mural on a nearby building. We got some pictures, enjoyed the creativity, and stretched our legs before getting back on the road.
