Ep.18> The Gemini Giant, Wilmington IL

Gemini Giant > 810 E. Baltimore Street, Wilmington Illinois 60481

The Gemini Giant epitomizes the road side culture. These attractions are amazing and one of the main things I want to see on this trip! Fantastic. This giant statue lives with the launching pad drive in (see previous post) and has been welcoming Route 66 travelers since the 1950s.
