Happy New Year, RoadDog.
Thanks for the list of 10 must see Midwest Roadside attractions.

We saw the World largest ketchup bottle in Collinsville, Illinois; been to Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, Missouri a few times; saw the giant praying hands in Webb City.
Next time when we visit family in Detroit, Michigan, we need to check out the Heidelberg Project.
Corn palace looks like an interesting place to visit and the green giant definitely is worth a stop.
We plan to start riding the Lincoln Highway this summer.
Best wishes in 2011 and the coming years.

I've heard the Corn Palace may not be with us much longer. Hope that's not true.

Being a US-12 fan, one of these days we want to get to the eastern terminus in Detroit. We'll check out the Heidelberg Project there.
