Loved following the footsteps in town and finding the murals painted by "Wall Digs," which we learned about at the museum. Of course, the footsteps take you past shops and restaurants, but what a great way to see Pontiac. Loved it!!

Take a leisurely walk and follow the blue footprints on the walk. A number of great murals painted by wall dogs the inspire memories. This was a pleasant surprise.

We stopped here as a break in our travel from Chicago to St. Louis. The museum combines the Wall Dog, the Rt 66, and the War museum all into the same multilevel building; it's a one stop with interests for about everyone. It is small,...More
