Retro in the Midwest
The decades seem to dissolve at places throughout the Midwest: diners with doo-wop on the jukebox, soda fountains with chrome fixtures, theaters that show two movies for less than $10.
We go to these retro spots for the charm. We go for the history. But mostly we go in search of a feeling we thought we'd lost. And we find it--in the sweet mingling of root beer and vanilla ice cream, in the sparkling smile of a waitress on roller skates, or in the silvery flicker of a movie in an open field on a hot summer night.
Click ahead for our picks of Midwest drive-in theaters, drive-in restaurants, soda fountains, diners and other spots where you can turn back the clock.
