Overview

Travel through history on The Mother Road at Route 66 State Park. Route 66 captured Americans’ imagination and exposed millions of citizens to small towns and different cultures across the country. Sample a slice of that at Route 66 State Park’s visitor center, which has displays showcasing the road. The visitor center is the former Bridgehead Inn, a 1935 roadhouse that sat on the original Route 66. The park’s location, close to metro St. Louis provides visitors with a quick getaway to nature. More than 40 types of birds have been identified in the park and picnic sites are sprinkled throughout the park.

The museum is a little hard to find. We went to the boat launch first. Then got on 44 for one exit to the east. The museum is free! It is in an old restaurant that had been on Route 66. It featured restaurant and...More

The paved loop for bikes is decent and flat. There are trails, but they don't seem to be popular and I wouldn't dare go alone. I walked my dog here once, saw a few deer and my dog got a couple ticks. Not as nice...More

The site is of the former Times Beach, a community destroyed by Dioxin, after it was sprayed on streets and driveways to keep down dust. A huge incinerator was built there to burn all the tainted soil from the region, and it burned non-stop for...More
