A. Ted Drewes Frozen Custard Since 1929
A St. Louis tradition on Old Route 66 since 1929. Known for specialty "concrete" shakes so thick you can turn them upside down, Ted Drewes Frozen Custard is a must-taste food while you travel Route 66. Journey back in time when you order from the walk-up window and enjoy a “concrete” shake outside in the summer time. No inside seating. Most of our products are certified kosher.
B. Old Chain of Rocks Bridge
At one mile, the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge is the world’s longest pedestrian and bicycle-only bridge. Park your car on the Illinois side and enter Missouri by bicycle or foot across this historic piece of Route 66. This bridge is located just north of St. Louis.
C. National Museum of Transportation
The Museum of Transportation has “one of the largest and best collections of transportation vehicles in the world," according to the Smithsonian Institution. Fittingly positioned along Route 66, the Museum of Transportation is one of many historic things to do on Route 66. Spend an afternoon learning about the vehicles and other modes of transportation used to travel Route 66 in years past.
