Illinois Route 66 road sign The starting point of Route 66 was the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Jackson Boulevard in Chicago.

The trip from Chicago to St. Louis was rarely more than one day.  There was little need for motels along the way, but restaurants and gas stations were very plentiful, along with an occasional garage for the unlucky motorist who had the misfortune to experience unexpected car problems during their travels.

Route 66 coffee bag Innovative paved roads made Illinois initially the only state along Route 66 to have "hard" roads on which to travel.

Early franchise restaurants such as A&W and Steak n' Shake appeared along Route 66 in Illinois and became recognizable to hungry travelers anywhere, not just in Illinois.
