Launching Pad Drive-In
Launching Pad Drive-In information
It's a quintessential stop on Route 66, located in Wilmington. Here the Gemini Giant - a 28ft fiberglass spaceman - stands guard outside a drive in restaurant. It recently shuttered, but the statue remains a terrific photo op. To reach it, exit I-55 at Joliet Rd, and follow it south as it becomes Hwy 53 into town.
