Olean's Squirrel Statues - Speaking of necessary, Olean has about 25 squirrel statues placed throughout the city. Some of them are very festive and pay homage to different parts of Olean's heritage, including Ronald McDonald and Santa.
Olean's Historic Mall - It may not have as many storefronts as it once did, but us Bradfordians have always wished our Bradford Mall were half as wondrous as the one in mighty Olean. The CD store alone is worth the trip over, and why not pick up some Renna's Pizza or Bath and Body Works supplies while you're there?
Olean's Restaurants - The days of the Alcove, Lucilla's and the Hostegeh may be over (yes I was that obsessed with Olean, being a Bradfordian growing up), but now Olean even has brew pubs. And when the Bonnies basketball team is having a year like this one, there aren't many better places to be.
Feel free to tag on the many more things us Bradfordians admire about Olean. I'm sure we could write an entire book on it, but for the sake of time I'll keep it to a few things for now. Thanks, Olean. I might make the trip over today.
