There is nothing better than a drive on
Historic Route 66 and stopping for ice cream.
"Featured Ice Cream Shop"
Polk-a-Dot Drive-In
222 N Front St
Braidwood, Illinois
(815) 458-3377
Ideal for having a sundae on a hot day in a unique surrounding. This is an historic drive in on Route 66 with amazing decor that takes you back in time, music from the 50s and 60s plays, and the fried chicken is the best you'll ever taste!! The original neon sign still spins outside welcoming travelers.
"Rich & Creamy"
920 N Broadway Street
Joliet 60435
(815) 740-2899
Hard not to love this place. It's got ice cream, and it has two life-sized statues of the Blues Brothers on the roof! Who could ask for a better combination of stuff to make you smile?

The ice cream is good and there is a park nearby to eat it in. The "Rich & Creamy" ice cream stand in Route 66 Park is the official starting point for Route 66 in Joliet.

The historic Whirl-A-Whip restaurant is near an old alignment of Route 66 in Girard, Illinois. It first opened in 1957. It’s the special ice-cream maker that gives the restaurant its name.

It still uses the 1950s-era Whirl-A-Whip ice cream machine, which whips each cup of ice cream individually. It’s not scooped out of a tub.

The Whirl-A-Whip machine is essentially a precursor to Dairy Queen’s Blizzard machines.

Twistee Treats
908 Veterans Memorial Dr.
Livingston, Illinois

Twistee Treats is located at the Pink Elephant Antiques Shop in Livingston off I-55 and on the old Historic Route 66. The Twistee Treat Ice Cream building is very unique.
