Illinois is a better place now that I know the world's biggest mailbox is just a few hours away from me. 

Social media really changed the world didn't it? We can share a photo instantly with our friends and family at any time and that's how I discovered the World's Largest Mailbox  in Casey Illinois.

One of my best friends, Nora, was on a little getaway with her boyfriend when suddenly I stopped scrolling thru my snapchat bubbles and did a double take. Wait, Nora, are you  inside a giant mailbox?

In fact. She was.

Not only can you walk up to is and take some pictures, YOU CAN SEND MAIL IN IT.

I know! It's legit a mailbox!

And that's not the only giant thing in Casey, which is about four hours away from Rockford depending on how fast you drive.

They also have a giant rocking chair.

Because who doesn't want a giant taco?

She shared a video with me too which is on the 97ZOK_Rockford Instagram page, of the two of them inside the mailbox.

I know they're the cutest couple of all time.... but I think even not so cute couples would have a blast visiting these small towns giant items with your significant other, or your best friend. Or a child in your life honestly, that seems like that best combo, a little kid and a GIANT mailbox!
