Historic route one stretches north and south along the eastern coast of theUnited States from Maine to Florida. The nearly 2500 mile highway weaves its way through major cities, small towns, scenic countryside and ocean vistas. An amalgam of Americana awaits travelers on this truly American road.
Like most of the older highways, route one evolved by incorporating existing state highways to form a continuous north-south link between the Northeast and Miami. Eventually, it would include Key West and the Canadian border. Born of necessity and formed without rules that would later govern our new interstate systems, route one is unique in its hodge podge of billboards, tacky buildings and abandoned structures, as well as high rise state of the art architecture and monuments of all kinds.
Take a trip down this famous highway, and see for yourself one of the finest collections of American cultural icons in the United States. You will be glad you did.
