66 Route 66 Things to See in Illinois-- Part 5: Hall of Fame and Museum

23.  Illinois State Fair in Springfield--  Right on old Route 66 and not far north of the old Bill Shea's.

24.  Coliseum Ballroom in Benld.

25.  Palms Cafe in Atlanta.  Rebuilt in the same site and a real trip back.  Just another thing Atlanta does for its 66 heritage.

26.  Sky View Drive In--  Litchfield.  I understand it is up for sale.  Never had the opportunity yet to see a movie there.

27.  Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac.  Another town that really goes with its Route 66 heritage, thanks a lot to Betty Estes.  And to think I was upset when the new owners of the Dixie kicked this out of their place in McLean.  Couldn't have worked out better for the Route 66 Association of Illinois.
