Green Bay Roadside Attractions
Oxley – Metal Ox – this metal ox was pretty cool. It was a little difficult to find because it sits in front of an industrial building on the corner of the building. It is a little bigger than the size of a cow or bull (never seen an Ox to compare) . This isn’t a huge standout because of it’s size, so don’t miss it. Oxley is made of metal and a brownish color.
Location: 2620 Development Dr, Green Bay Wisconsin. In front of the handicapped parking area.
World’s Largest Hex Nut – located in the parking lot of Packer Fastener, sits this huge Hex nut. You can get out of your car, stand in it and grab a few pictures. They encourage you to post them on social media with hashtags as well. It stands 10 feet tall and weighs 3.5 tons!
Location: 728 Lombardi Avenue, Green Bay. Located on the north side of Lombardi Avenue and east of Highway 32/South Ashland Avenue, just past the train tracks on your almost immediate left.
Dinosaurs Green Bay WI
Dinosaur – Dino the Dinosaur is located at a Shell Station, across the train track from the hex nut. Dino sits on the Lombardi side of the road next to the sign with the gas prices. Not a HUGE dinosaur, but something the kids will definitely want to take a look at with a great photo opportunity.

Green Bay Football Attractions
