Thayer Community Profile & Itinerary
Small communities all along Illinois Route 66 give visitors opportunities to experience the “Real America” and see life completely differently from major metropolitan areas. With a population of around 675 people, Thayer will be one of the smallest you find along Illinois Route 66. Stop by and experience life at a slower pace.


Pudock’s Hideout

Small town charm abounds in this charming roadside bar and grill. Stop by to enjoy great bar food and enjoy the company of locals. A great place to stop and soak up some of the “real America.”

4th Annual Blue Carpet Corridor Festival

June 8, 2018

The Blue Carpet Corridor, from Chatham down to Collinsville (including Edwardsville), is a unique section of Route 66 characterized not only by its Mother Road charm, but also its rich mining history and colorful mobster lore. Route 66 is known for its quirky attractions, roadside hospitality, and family fun. And on the second weekend in June, the blue carpet will be rolled out to welcome thousands of travelers.
