St. Louis, MO to Beloit, WI
« on: August 27, 2015, 06:15:24 PM »

Sometime in the next week or so I will be traveling from St. Louis (well, actually just south of it) to Beloit, Wisconsin to pick up some family members. I figure I will probably take the standard route (I-55 to I-39, roughly 4 1/2 hours) on my way back and am looking to take a more interesting route on my way there, since I'll be by myself and will have more time. I'm willing to go up to about three hours or so out of my way to see more interesting sights along the way. Any suggestions?

Great River Road?

Avenue of the Saints?

US-67?

I'm leaning towards taking the Avenue of the Saints and debating where I want to cut east and cross the Mississippi. One option is taking I-80 through the Quad Cities and getting on I-88, but that would involve tolls which I'd rather avoid if I can. Another choice that looks good is taking US 151 through Dubuque to Madison, which is a little further out of my way than I really wanted to go, but would take me through more places I've never been.

How is US 67 through Illinois? Can you make good time on it? Glancing at my atlas it looks like the road goes through lots of towns along the way.

Couldn't tell you about US-67 in Illinois as I've yet to make that trip myself.

I do think US-151 through Dubuque is a good idea - I really like the scenery in that area.
