So Much to See, So Little Time

While poking through Goggle Plus last night I came across a guy looking for Route 66 sites to see between Chicago at St. Louis. I of course gave him some of the more major ones but as I was trying to decide which spots to list it hit me that there are a lot of landmarks to see on 66. 

Just between Chicago and St. Louis alone there must be a 100 plus places outside of the normal ones worth seeing, either on, or close to the route. So in a way when you visit the route you can see not only the normal landmarks but a bit more depending on your interest. 

Route 66 has points of interest for agri-tourism, culinary tourism, paranormal tourism, American history, automotive history, aviation history, railway history, sport tourism, American Kitsch, and spa's. The list goes on, yet also the list tends to stay family friendly. 

Bachelors Grove Cemetery is a renowned ghost hunting sight near 66, one of many on the route

The Greek Islands in Chicago legendary Route 66 restaurant and gourmet paradise

St. James Winery a Route 66 must stop for wine lovers. 

Agri-tourism? Funks Grove is an excellent example. 

Love aviation? The Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, CA has to be on your list. 

Into art tourism, a luxury stay, railroad history, or fine dining? Then the La Posada is the place for you for any or all that apply.

As usual feel free to contact me and join my site if you are looking for something in particular for you and your family to see.
