October 2003: Missouri Route 66 & Illinois U.S. 40

Amber and I decided to take a weekend trip and head to St. Louis, Missouri to visit Six Flags. When we lived back east, we always enjoyed going to Six Flags’ Great Adventure, particularly during Fright Fest. So we thought we’d try it here.

Unfortunately, we got rained out, so we opted to do other things instead. We did a little 66’ing and visited the Riverside Reptile Ranch. Leo the Lion grew much bigger and we got to hold snakes and alligators!  yech

We also went to the Museum of Transport in St. Louis, which was really cool. They have an outdoor exhibit on trains (which we passed on due to the rain), but plenty inside. Boats, cars, buses, trailers…even a portion of the Coral Court Motel partially rebuilt, with many items from the motel as well.

We cruised back to Indianapolis on US 40.
