Route 66 – (2013 Trip) – Day 3 – Chicago, IL. to Lincoln, IL.

Today was the day we would set off on Route 66, so we travelled into Chicago to have breakfast Chicago icon located on Route 66. The famous Lou Mitchell’s diner

We found parking about 100 metres from the diner in what was a the time a vacant lot.

This section of Route 66 through Illinios is great, the old alignments, the old service stations and towns show a time gone by when this road was “king”.

Some item of interest include:

  • The Launching Pad Drive-In & Gemini Giant, Wilmington
  • Odell Station, Odell
  • Illinois Route 66 Museum, Pontiac
