A rabbit ranch is a legendary roadside attraction in Illinois.

Big Fan Of Roadside Attractions

I am not afraid to admit, that I am a big fan of roadside attractions. If I am on a road trip and I happen to come across one with some extra time, I am definitely going to stop to check it out.

I think my love of roadside attractions comes from memories of taking vacations with my family as a kid. My parents took me to many through the years.

Luckily, there are many in Illinois, especially on Route 66. What is special about Route 66?

According to roadtripusa.com,

"The romance of Route 66 continues to captivate people around the world. Starting in Chicago and ending in Los Angeles, “over two thousand miles all the way” in the words of the popular R&B anthem, this legendary old road passes through the heart of the United States on a diagonal trip that takes in some of the country’s most archetypal roadside scenes. If you’re looking for great displays of neon signs, rusty middle-of-nowhere truck stops, or kitschy Americana, do as the song says and “get your kicks on Route 66.”
