Welcome to Atlanta – this time in central Illinois along Route 66. Atlanta is a classic American town, with a firm grip on its Route 66 heritage.
Incorporated in 1853, this historic Illinois town features the octagonal Atlanta Public Library found on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, and home to the iconic clock tower and Atlanta Museum. You can also visit the J. H. Harwes Grain Elevator Museum, and about a ton of Route 66 attractions.
Your first stop is the classic Bunyon's Statue – a 19-foot man sternly holding a giant hot dog, to put it simply. There's also the Rt. 66 Walking Tour, Rt. 66 murals throughout town, and the Palms Grill Café.
