World's 2nd Largest Rocking Chair: Route 66 Red Rocker

The Route 66 Outpost next to the rocking chair is closed and out of business. Fortunately the Red Rocker still stands (or sits) tall!

Great place to stop for photos and shop. Lucky to have a train pass by while we sat on the porch.

Really nice general store adjacent to the Route 66 Rocker. It is worth a visit and driving a few miles on old 66 if traveling through Missouri.
