  1. Dayton, Ohio; Not too far off your I-70 path:

    Ru Dumaine;
    El Meson;

    Springfield, Ohio; Ditto ...

    Young's Dairy (Farm);

    St. Louis; Ditto ...

    Lotta Watta Creek;

    1. If your route takes you through Springfield, IL, and you are looking for places with history, you must stop and have a Cozy Dog. Pair it in St. Louis with some Ted Drewes custard, and you've hit a couple of classic Route 66 tastes.
