Driving down rt 159 in Collinsville you can't miss this giant roadside attraction. Not a lot of parking but you can get close enough to get a picture.

Visiting Collinsville we had to go see this famous roadside attraction. The tower was easy to find and drive by though disappointed that there was nowhere near that we could park and take pictures.

I was told by a resident about this attraction so we went by to see it on the way to visit. Can now say I have seen it.

A quick stop to see a cool a really big ketchup bottle. Not a good place to park and see it. Hard to see directly below it. Easy to see from moving car.

Not hard to miss. In a parking lot of a construction site. Cool spot to go if traveling on Route 66. A must see.
