Today, we’re leaving the hotel, and tomorrow we’ll explore downtown Freeport. Even though it was the middle of the day, this hotel weirded me out. Mattresses were discarded in the dumpster, most of the lower-level windows were boarded up, and the back door was propped open. I wasn’t (and still am not) brave enough to explore inside by myself, so someone else will need to conduct the urban spelunking if you want interior photos.

Exit, March 6, 2024. Freeport, Illinois.
