    Route 66 on a Tank of Gas shows the many Mother Road attractions along Illinois’ 300 miles of the highway. An Illinois Route 66 adventure remains an economical trip—see it all on one tank of gas! We explore the importance of the travel corridor from Chicago to St. Louis dating back centuries. Starting in the 1920s Illinois became a leader in building “hard roads,” pulling the Land of Lincoln “out of the mud” on modern ribbons of concrete. Finally, we take a virtual tour, stopping at restaurants, museums, and historic sites-- getting our kicks on Illinois Route 66! Presented by David Clark, the Windy City Road Warrior.
