Freeport, Illinois the home of the infamous Freeport Pretzels. Yep, that was our high school mascot--the Pretzel.
"We are the Pretzels and we are proud so stand up Pretzels and shout it out loud: P-R-E-T-Z-E-L, Pretzel Power.........Pretzel Power" and so on and so on. Funny how that stuff stays with you through the years.
Anyway, I grew up in the industrial city in the northwest corner of the state of Illinois. I haven't been back more than a handful of times since I went away to college twenty years ago.
These are some of the guys I hung around with 20 years ago--how did they get so old? more travel advice
All commerce has moved to the outskirts of town leaving the center of town somehwat rundown. I guess K-marts, Wal-marts... more travel advice
