August 11th, 2013 Metropolis, Illinois, Home of Superman

METROPOLIS, Ill. (Aug. 10.2013) – The man in the Superman Museum, here in Metropolis, told me this is the only city in the US named Metropolis, so the annual Superman Celebration during the second weekend in June makes a lot of sense.  Few towns have such a celebrity of which  to theme its town square and annual celebration. They tell me that the town preceded the super hero by several decades and that the creators and owners of Superman now embrace the connection. The featured attraction is the 15-foot tall statue of Superman in front of the courthouse, located on the aptly named Superman Square. The Super Museum is a retail store where just about anything connected to the man of steel can be found for sale. A couple blocks down the street is a nice bronze statue of Noel Neil, known as the First Lady of Metropolis, who starred as Lois Lane in the TV Superman series and starred in more than 100 movies.  You’ll also find a big hunk of bright green kryptonite in front of the Americana Hollywood museum and gift store, just outside the front entrance to the huge Harrah’s Metropolis Casino & Hotel complex.  Fun place. I was a great tourist the day I visited, snapping photos of everything in sight. Check out my SUPER gallery.
