News From Along Route 66: Bloomington, Il. and Arizona

The June 7th Bloomington Pantagraph said that more than 300 antique cars were on display at the Route 66 Cruise-In in downtown Bloomington, Illinois.  Could it be that Bloomington and Normal are at long last finally realizing that they have a Route 66 heritage and it is definitely good for business?

The June 2, 2015, Las Vegas Review-Journal listed 9 sights you've got to see on Route 66 in Arizona:

OATMAN--  Of course, those wild animals.

KINGMAN--  Historic Route 66 Museum in the Power House Visitors Center.

HACKBERRY--  Hackberry General Store and Visitor Center. Wasn't that Bob's old place?

VALENTINE--  Old schoolhouse for Hualapal Indian boys.

WINSLOW--  Standing On the Corner

ROCK ART CANYON RANCH--  Extensive petroglyphs

CHEVELON CANYON BRIDGE--  Near the previous place.  One of Arizona's oldest bridges and you can now drive across it.
