Lincoln Highway


category : Scenic Byways
National scenic byway, quick 2-day excursion.

On March 20, 1915, the first Complete Official Road Guide of the Lincoln Highway was produced. The highway started in New York City's Times Square. It passed through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and California before ending in Lincoln Park in San Francisco.

Today, travelers in search of "real" America who want to travel at a leisurely pace can trace the Lincoln Highway through Illinois and ponder automobile travel when the "Tin Lizzie" ruled America's roads.
