66 Route 66 Things to See in Illinois-- Part 6: The Dixie

28.  DIXIE TRAVEL PLAZA--  McLean.  Looking modern after rebuilt from fire.  At least the new owners now have a respect for its Route 66 heritage, not like the previous ones who bought it from the original owners.  Who'd have expected a place named Dixie this far north.

29.  MURALS IN DOWNTOWN PONTIAC--  Sure are a lot of them made over a few days by the WallDogs.  And, then there are all those museums.

30.  ELKHART HILL--  Sticks out high above surroundings.  You can't miss it standing tall above surrounding prairie.  Northeast of Springfield.

31.  SMILEY FACE WATER TOWER--  Atlanta.  Always makes me grimace.  I hate Smiley Faces, anywhere, anyhow.  Yuck!!

32.  ARISTON CAFE--  Litchfield.  They even have cheaters for those of us who have a hard time reading the menus.  Try to eat in the original room, not the banquet one.
