Description:
Traveling along Route 66 is a wonderful experience; our goal is to capture what makes it special. One of the great features of driving the Route is seeing period Americana (American culture), items from the 1920s thru 1980s. Also along the path are things that are distinctive and can't be seen anywhere else or are of significant interest and worthy of being called out. Lastly there are important markers along the path of Route 66 that should be seen. Done right, you'll experience Route 66 here!!

They don’t make places like Snuffy’s anymore. The original owner ran Snuffy’s from 1930 until 1969. Snuffy’s is a longstanding Route 66 institution that truly deserves Route 66 legendary status.

Yummy chicken dinner! Located on Joliet Road on what became the Alternate 66 after 1940. A farm close to the city to draw in the city folks. The fact that they have a petting zoo and museum just seals the sense of nostalgia.
