Road Trip to Des Moines

rlc | Sep 11, 200308:53 PM     2

Our kids just moved from Seattle to Des Moines. We will be leaving Western Kentucky next week to visit them. Our primary route is I-57 through Champaign, to 74W through Peoria to the Quad City area, then I-80 to Des Moines.

Any interesting little places along the route? Our food interests are rather broad.

We may spend the night in Peoria. Anything of interest there? Can be hole-in-the-wall or upscale bistro. Would there be more of interest if we drove on to Quad City?

What about Des Moines? I have picked up a few things from reviewing the board. However, to date my entertainment file on Des Moines is rather thin.

Thanks much.
