“Where it all begins”
All across Illinois, Historic Route 66 is very well marked. Historic Route 66 begins at its eastern terminus, Lake Shore Drive (US 41) and Jackson Blvd.
This sign is closer to the art institute. There is another one (newer) a couple of blocks down- near Adams & State. If you go to the sign, you might as well go up by the lions- I've read that's where it really starts!
Historical place. Not hard to find. Walking distans from the been. Make sure you go to the right sign.
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.
As an avid roadtripper, I can appreciate the significance of this sign... Not a top-spot in Chicago but awesome none the less and a great photo-op
