This sign is closer to the art institute. There is another one (newer) a couple of blocks down- near Adams & State. If you go to the sign, you might as well go up by the lions- I've read that's where it really starts!

Historical place. Not hard to find. Walking distans from the been. Make sure you go to the right sign.

A must when traveling Route 66. Not a very scenic spot in the city but it's a 3 minute photo op. Chicago should really take advantage of this and give tourists a better attraction.

As an avid roadtripper, I can appreciate the significance of this sign... Not a top-spot in Chicago but awesome none the less and a great photo-op
