Rest stops usually look the same, right? Small structure with bathrooms, a big map, a couple of vending machines, an alternative energy windspire….

I heard about this unique rest stop at the Mile 110 marker on I-44. It has a Route 66 theme – retro gas pumps, a map of the historic route painted on the floor, fun sign pointing your way in. And out front, there is an Alternative Energy Spire with a sign claiming it provides enough energy to power the lights inside the building. Again, not something you see at every rest stop – worth a break if you’re on the long road trip.

Here are some photos I snapped….
