Everyone is invited to participate in a special driving tour linking three of America’s great roads this June! Join the Lincoln Highway Association for a tour of America’s very first roadway, the Old National Road from Maryland, through Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. The tour then links up with the Twentieth Century’s two great roads, Route 66 and the Lincoln Highway in Illinois.
The fun begins Friday evening, June 17, 2016, in Cumberland, Maryland, and runs west for seven days ending at Joliet, Illinois, on Friday, June 24. Participants may sign up for the full tour or a partial tour (two days minimum). All motorists on two, three, four or more wheels are warmly welcomed in vintage or modern vehicles. Many scenic and historical sites and activities are planned along the way. Support teams and experienced tour guides will provide for a fun and informative experience for all.
Some of the notable sites on the tour include Fort Necessity Pennsylvania, original state capitol buildings, the Zane Gray/National Road Museum, Ohio’s famous “S” and “Y” bridges, the National Museum of the US Air Force, Wright Brothers sites, the Model T Ford Museum, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, President Lincoln’s home and grave, Route 66 Museum and Hall of Fame, and many iconic historical service stations and roadside cafes along the way.
