The Unconditional Surrender Statue next to the USS Midway based on the famous photo from the end of the Second World War.

This 25 foot tall sculpture is a depiction of a famous black and white photo which appeared on the cover of LIFE Magazine when the end of the War was announced! A popular tourist attraction, the Homecoming Statue and the Bob Hope tribute are nearby. Park in the metered lot.

This is such a tourist trap but yet everyone should stop here. Just watch the parking lot because there are still some drivers that seem to have just passed their driver's test. Don't forget to feed the meter when you actually find a spot. Just watch out for those parrots in the trees. I don't see the owners but I'm sure they are nearby to charge you for taking a picture with their birds. Everyone and their mothers are taking pictures here. Just be courteous and take turns. Better yet, help each other take pictures for each other. It's one of those statues you have to see as a destination across America on a road trip. On the East coast, there is a huge Marilyn Monroe statue which for some reason, I thought was here near this statue. Just like right out of the Times magazine is this beautiful image. I've seen the photos where most couples try to re-enact the same kissing scene for their photo next to it. Be extra careful walking back to your car, there are still drivers that don't look around as they are backing out of their spaces or pulling into one.

The infamous THE KISS statue based on the picture at Times Square in New York!

It is a must for couples to take a picture underneath the statue! The views are beautiful too! You get to have the USS Midway in the background!
