Illinois Road Trip: Hitting the road to Metropolis!

I’m so excited, tomorrow I’m taking off for a day trip to Metropolis, IL! This is the first official road trip of 2009! While I’m only going for a few hours and not leaving the state, it will be at least 12 hours of driving to see a bunch of Illinois roadside attractions, so it totally counts as a road trip, right? I’ll report back on Monday. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
