“a way to spruce up all of I-81!”
Driving along interstate 81 in Pennsylvania can be quite montonous and unenjoyable. Luckily there are a few bright spots along this nearly 233 mile stretch of highway. Near the Mason-Dixon line at exit 24, welcoming you to the Blue mountains sits one of the largest paint cans in the world. The 35 feet high can comes adorned with a lid and a handle. Originally the structure was a water tower from the previous owner. When the Benjamain Moore paint company purchased the property they decided to use the eyesore as a marketing tool. Now if only we could find a way to spruce up all of I-81!
Fun stop for a quirky photo op and to stretch your legs. Right off the highway.
It's pretty darn big.
Drove right by it on our route. Cool.
The paint can is less than a mile from the highway exit and is very easy to get close to for some fun photos. Well worth the short detour.
As the paint can is right along the highway, make sure you're looking out for it if you're not planning on stopping. If you do want to stop, it's not too difficult to get on and off the highway to take pictures up close and personal with the paint can.
It's a big paint can! Right on the highway, this makes for a fun marker on your trip. It doesn't justify a stop, but it's fun to have on your list and keep an eye out for.
Easy to get, too... cool to see.. July 22-23
Easy pull off just off 81… would recommend!
Quick and easy photo op! Worth pulling off for.
