You'll Know It When You Get There

Both Illinois and Missouri have highway signs along I-270 that tell drivers which direction to go to reach St. Charles (MO). Oddly, there is no 'St. Charles' exit on I-270. Except for the occasional clairvoyant tourist, it is unclear how a driver unfamiliar with the area would know where to turn.

[Note: There is a "St. Charles Rock Road" exit on I-270, but the highway department blew up the bridge across the Missouri River so the St. Charles Rock Road no longer actually goes to St. Charles. The exit to get to St. Charles is I-70 West -- the signs say "Kansas City."]
