Experiencing America > 2012 > An overnight to Show Me...2012 > Day 1

Day ONE...
Thursday, May 24th, 2012


It was all a quick overnight from work, and to reconnect. This took us to the great city along the Mighty Mississippi, St. Louis. With many trips to the Gateway City, what is there to see and how to see it? We took off across Central Illinois to Springfield. For a late morning snack we stopped off at the place that claims to be the originator of the corn dog, or as they call it Hot Dog on a Stick, "Cozy Dog".

Looking north at Cozy Dog along Historical U.S. 66.

To keep with the U.S. 66 theme, or venture we took out of the Capital City along the original alignment of U.S. 66 to I-55 south of Staunton. We arrived into Fairview Heights in late afternoon. This gives enough time to do some shopping and a bit of dinning. The evenings events were topped off with a Cardinals game at Busch.

Now to State #2...Missouri!!

This evening game was Philadelpia against the Cards!

Welcome to Busch.

Yes we are...
