From readers Digest "13 Must-See Sights You Can Only See On Route 66" by Claire Nowak.
I always enjoy seeing when other people have a list of what to see on Route 66, especially when it is a place I've seen.
1. World's Largest Ketchup Bottle-- Collinsville, Illinois. Built in 1949 and actually a water tower 70 feet tall. Wants some fries with your catsup (or is it ketchup?).
2. Meramec Caverns-- Stanton, Missouri. Opened as a tourist attraction in 1935 and did a lot of advertising along Route 66 and other roads on those barns, especially famous for putting bumper stickers on every car that visited. I was SO disappointed when we visited that they didn't have any free bumper stickers in 2004, or even ones I could buy for that matter.
For some reason, I always have a hard time spelling Meramec Caverns.
