Plains Trail Region

Adrian, located at the midpoint of the historic Route 66, maintains a replica of a period American Automobile Association (AAA) sign, proclaiming “1,139 miles to Chicago –– 1,139 miles to Los Angeles.” Across the street is the 1928 MidPoint Café, where locals and tourists mix over pie and coffee. Progress left many Route 66 towns in the dust, but the soul of a bygone era is still found in the winks and nods of folks in places like Adrian and nearby Shamrock and McLean.
