Renowned author of Route 66 books, John Weiss, will join us in Joliet to provide a narrated guided tour of the Route 66 scenic byway. We will enjoy lunch at the nostalgic memorabilia-filled Old Route 66 Family Restaurant. Next, we're on the road again to the town of Odell to tour the historical Standard Oil Station and Route 66 Hall of Fame & Museum in Pontiac. On our return journey, we will stop for a special treat at the famed Polk-A-Dot Diner in Braidwood to see the fiberglass statues of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and the Blues Brothers! Relive the freedom, passion, and spirit Route 66 once gave America!
