World's Largest Peanut

World's Largest Peanut: Durant, OK (300 W. Evergreen St)

  • Directions from Hwy 69: Take the exit for Main St/Hwy 70. Head east off of the ramp. Follow this road into town. Turn left onto 3rd Street. Go up one block, and the peanut is at the intersection of Evergreen and 3rd.
After driving all day again, we enjoyed this stop. It was close to our destination, and we were able to get out of the car and walk around a bit. Durant seems like a nice small town in southern Oklahoma. We got into town at about 7 or 7:30, and not many people were out walking in downtown near the City Hall where this peanut is located. It is a cement peanut on a pedestal for all the peanut farmers in the area. It's still a huge peanut, even if it isn't real. This was a good stop for some goofy pictures!
