I know that many people strongly suggest against one day for the entire state of Illinois...but we only have 12 days of driving.
If I plan on leaving Chicago around 8am and arriving in St.Louis by 7pm, including driving and eating time...which stops do you suggest I make along the way? What should we absolutely not miss?
A rough draft of our interary.
