Not a ghost town, but it includes a few abandoned buildings. Seems like most of the buildings and it's contents have been cleared. Evidence of the remaining foundations are left behind.
The Murder Bordello is no longer in business. The building remains but has been replaced by an antique shop.
A must when traveling Route 66. Not a very scenic spot in the city but it's a 3 minute photo op. Chicago should really take advantage of this and give tourists a better attraction.
Good diner food. Began my Route 66 trip in Chicago so this was a must to give me a proper Route 66 send off.
Gemini Giant still stands! The Launching Pad is still closed for business but access to the giant is still available. Shocking to see cooking equipment, tables, chairs and memorabilia still inside the restaurant. Almost that they closed one night anticipating opening the next morning and never did after many years.
Great restoration on this Texaco Gas Station! Various different photo ops here. They have a cool vintage inspired billboard outside that helps this gas station stand out from the rest. Also, they have Electric Parking! Who has that! Nobody but Ambler's. They do a wonderful job catering to the Route 66 traveler. Don't miss it!
Although it's just a brick road, it's still a cool stretch of road that looks like no other. I wouldn't go out if my way to see this, but if traveling Route 66, it's a neat break from boring ole asphalt.
Parking is available on the Illinois side ONLY. The Missouri side is closed. This is a great mile long walk that gives the best view of the Mississippi River and St. Louis city skyline.
Worth the time to stop for a quick photo op and history lesson. Only takes about 10-15 minutes.
Cool photo op. Spent about 5 minutes and moved on. Worth the stop, but I guess after visiting the old Joliet Prison, this seemed to pale in comparison.
