Top 5 Surprising Things I Found
I had certain expectations for what I would find on my mini road trip through the Illinois portion of Route 66, but some things I found were surprising:
#5 Interstate 55 (Stevenson Expressway) is a part of historic Route 66
#4 Paul Bunyan and Gemini Giant were created from the same mold!
#3 Number of people from around the world that visited the Route 66 shop in Atlanta, IL
#2 Cozy library in Atlanta, IL
#1 The calming feel of being in a small town
Have you traveled this portion of Route 66? If so, I’d love to know what things you found surprising in the comments below. I’m hoping one day I’ll be able to travel the whole Route 66.
