I popped in quickly to escape the heat, and what I found was an adorable store. Co-located with Humma's Drug, this smallish store sells Hallmark cards and gifts, and convenience drugs, toys, potions and lotions. They have an aisle dedicated to Americana - Coca-Cola, Betty Boop, Harley Davidson, and of course, Superman.
What to buy: Superman souvenirs - shirts, keychains, lunch pails...

The annual Superman Celebration occurs the second weekend of June each year, and brings thousands of people to Metropolis. Each year there are celebrity guests (2009 had Noel Neill, the original Lois Lane), games, and events. In 2008, the Guinness World record for the most people dressed as Superman was set at the Celebration. Kids will love it!
Metropolis is a small town, so if you plan to stay the whole time, you will need to book your hotel room in advance. If they are fully booked, look at staying in nearby Paducah, KY.

I discovered these buffalo somewhere in the environs of Metropolis. I can't recall precisely where but I'm sure you could ask. Absolutely beautiful creatures.
