Then we will visit the Route 66 Diner for our “final meal” of monte cristo sandwich, Route 66 cheeseburger or walleye sandwich. All include soda, fries and choice of dessert between cheesecake, apple pie or pecan pie before we visit the Joliet Prison for a guided tour to talk about its rich history of criminals housed in the prison and famous movie/T.V. shows filmed at the prison. Don’t miss out on this interesting day in Joliet! Please note: This trip contains extensive walking. The prison tour is a 90 minute walking tour and there is no seating as we go around the prison.
