Heyyyy! I am on a roll today! It seems like, so many things piled up so quickly and now I have a few minutes to play catch up. So, while I am playing catch up, I want to share one last post for today, which is a little about Route 66 in St. Louis, Missouri.
If you have been following along, you would have picked up on my fascination for the nostalgic Route 66. It is something about that era that just draws me in and captures every breath of me; the diners, the drive-in movies, the wall murals, the automobiles, the everything.
Well, almost everything.
It all started earlier this year, we took a trip to Pontiac, Illinois to the Route 66 Museum for one of our state trips. We literally stayed hours learning about the Historic Route 66. By the end of that trip, I had my mind made up that I would drive what was left of Route 66 with my adorable pop-up camper (that I have yet to get).
Until that dream comes true, I have been piecing together Route 66 with random visits when I can – such as the visit to the Route 66 Hall of Fame Museum in Pontiac, cabin camping overnight in Eureka, Missouri at the Historic Route 66 KOA, and our Southwestern trip to Needles, California.
But, with our recent visit to America’s Incredible Pizza, I was able to add another piece to the puzzle! Whoohoo! The entire theme, aside from the arcade was centered around Route 66. So, I got almost everything I adored from Route 66 out of one visit to America’s Incredible Pizza.
For example, the Route 66 Diner Family Dining Room gave me the diner experience. The drive-in movies experience was captured in the Starlight Room. There were Route 66 wall murals everywhere, as well as America’s red dream car of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Do you have a fascination for Route 66? If so, let me know!
In the meantime, don’t forget to vote! See you soon!
