World's Largest Fire Hydrant

1400 Taylor St, Columbia, South Carolina 29220 USA

Add to Trip

“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.

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.

Next to the Tunnel Vision mural. Park once see both. 1 quarter gets you 20 minutes in the public parking meter.

Meh, not really worth the side trip. Plus it's leaning over like it's about to fall down.
