The weekend Post Dispatch had a story on Casey, Illinois, and how they've made their town a stop along I-70 for travelers. Casey has placed the "world's largest everything" all around the small town. These include a golf tee, wind chime, mailbox, rocking chair, dinner fork and many more things.
This is quite comical, but it does draw you in as you see the billboards while driving in eastern Illinois on I-70. And, truth be told, we did stop once on our way to DC just to see the World's biggest golf tee. We didn't take the time to look at the wind chime and had no idea all these other things were there too. But it was a fun stop.
If you're ever somewhere between Effingham and the Indiana border of Illinois, take time to check this out.
